Sources: West Ham working on three more signings by tonight
West Ham are working on bringing in three more new signings by tonight, Football Insider understands.
The east Londoners are on the verge of making Jarrod Bowen their third signing of the window after he headed in for a medical today.
A West Ham source has told Football Insider the club are also in talks to sign a new right-back and a centre-forward.
The Hammers board have decided to lavishly back David Moyes’ rebuilding plans after a wretched few months has left them in a major relegation battle.
West Ham gatecrashed Crystal Palace’s attempts to land Bowen with an initial bid worth £16m including add-ons that they subsequently increased to £22m.
It has been accepted by Hull City and the free-scoring wide forward is now putting the finishing touches to a blockbuster move.

In addition, West Ham are also trying to solve their right-back problem by landing a long-term replacement for Pablo Zabaleta, who will leave when his contract expires in the summer.
Both bids are still on the table and they remain in the Premier League outfit’s sights ahead of the transfer cut-off at 11pm.
There is also an interest in Toulouse’s Kelvin Amian Adou, a 21-year-old who has been capped by France at Under-21 level, as well as a right-back in Spain.
West Ham also want an orthodox spearhead in addition to free-scoring Bowen, a left-footed attacker who tends to play on the right flank.
