The Hammers front line of Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia only managed 18 Premier League goals between them last term despite playing in an attacking side which scored 65 goals.
The Londoners have also been strongly linked to Besiktas wide man Tore, who has completed a medical at the club
These deals are yet to be confirmed with Gold reminding the West Ham supporters that the deals are not done until they are signed off, but it seems Slaven Bilic is close to notable transfer.
Sakho and Valencia are the most likely men to make way as both have publicly aired their desire to leave London in order to get regular football elsewhere.
