West Ham United new player in and out 2018/19. Here is the West Ham United First Team Squad 2018/19. The January transfer window 2018 is closed and we have the full West Ham transfers list 2018 with all West Ham new player signings 2018/19. So here are the West Ham United Squad for 2018/19.
West Ham have hired former Man City manager Manuel Pellegrini after their disappointing 13th place finish last season. The Hammers have made some ambitious signings this summer after securing talented winger Felipe Anderson from Lazio for a club record fee. This season, West Ham will look to compete for a top six finish after an expensive overhaul of the club.
West Ham United have been improving their squad this season ahead of the 2017/18 season. After a successful 2015/16 season and moving to their new home, the London Stadium in summer 2016, everyone expected the Hammers to be really strong in the 2016/17 season. However, this wasn’t the case. They finished 11th but spent a lot of the season lower down in the table, and flirting with relegation at some points.
Their home form really suffered in their new stadium, much to the disappointment of the fans. They suffered some really heavy losses at home, such as 4-2 vs Watford, 3-0 vs Southampton, 5-0 vs Manchester City and 4-0 vs Liverpool. This form continued in the 2017/18 season and Slaven Bilic was sacked midway through the 2017/18 season after this bad run of form and David Moyes was brought in.
In response to a below-par season, last season, West Ham United needed to make new signings. And they have done so, bringing in several good players. They have signed players who have proven they are good enough for the Premier League, such as Joe Hart and Javier Hernandez. They have a much better squad than last season and will be looking to compete higher up the table next season.

The West Ham line up 2018/19 season will consist of these players.
These are the only two goalkeepers in the West Ham United squad at the moment. West Ham signed Lukasz Fabianski from Swansea after the Welsh club were relegated.
These defenders in the 2018/19 West Ham United squad are listed above. West Ham’s defence was heavily criticised last season and they have started to improve by signing ex-Manchester City right-back Pablo Zabaleta. There is still time for them to sign more defenders before next season. West Ham signed Issa Dip from Toulouse.
Above we can see the midfielders in the West Ham United squad for the 2017/18 season. Their star man is their captain, Mark Noble. He has been a reliable player for them for many seasons. Manuel Lanzini has also made a positive impact in a more advanced role. Youngster Sead Haksabanovic was their only summer recruit, the 18 year-old signing from Swedish side Halmstads.
Here at the attackers that will be in the 2018/19 West Ham United squad. As you can see, they have quite a lot of options now in this area of the field, and look very dangerous. These will be the key players for the Hammers this season as they look to improve on that 11th placed finish. Historically they have struggled to find solid options in attack, but they have also bought some Premier League proven talent, such as Javier Hernandez, signed from Bayer Leverkusen, and Marko Arnautovic, signed from Stoke City. There are also some other good options such as Andre Ayew and Michail Antonio, who have both proven they are dangerous going forward. This summer they have shown great ambition by breaking their club record transfer sum by signing Felipe Anderson from Lazio.
