West Ham have had their most successful summer transfer window in history in the year 2023, as their transfer ins and outs have seen a big name, Declan Rice leave the club for a club record breaking selling fee for an English player. BestofBets takes a look at West Ham summer transfer business (including loans)!
West Ham summer transfer window 2023 Ins and Outs
Sean Moore – Cliftonville, undisclosed
Declan Rice – Arsenal, £105m
Gianluca Scamacca – Atalanta, £27.5m
Arthur Masuaku – Besiktas, undisclosed
Manuel Lanzini – River Plate, free

The Hammers started their window by selling arguably their biggest English star, Declan Rice, who joined Arsenal for a mammoth £105m fee, a club record fee. Their bid fell just short of what Chelsea paid for Enzo Fernandez, who still stands as the most expensive transfer made by an English club.
They also let go of one of their star strikers Gianluca Scamacca, who joined Italian club Atalanta for £27.5m. However, they have to start bringing in replacements quickly if they are to survive what is going to be a very competitive 2023-24 Premier League season. If David Moyes stands any chance of steering West Ham to safety at the end of the 2023-24 season, the Hammers need to make at least four major signings, one in defence, two in midfield and a striker!
As of August 9, West Ham have made just a single signing, that of Sean Moore from Cliftonville for an undisclosed fee. However, latest developments have seen them move close to signing Manchester United’s Harry Maguire and Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.
They are also aiming to sign another Manchester United star Scott McTominay in the coming days.
The above list will be continuously updated above as and when a new West Ham transfer incoming or outgoing occurs.
