Magnusson thinking big

Hammers Chairman Eggert Magnusson has told the Icelandic press that he has his eyes on several major signings this summer.

Last weekend it was suggested that should the Hammers avoid relegation, Alan Curbishley would be rewarded with a transfer warchest in excess of £40m.

And earlier today Magnusson confirmed that the club were looking at a number of possible expensive new signings - although he refused to divulge exactly who he and Curbishley were monitoring.

Likely targets will be Charlton's Darren Bent and Newcastle captain Scott Parker, a former player of Curbishley's said to be unhappy in the North East. However the transfer net could be cast much wider this summer, given Magnusson's extensive network of worldwide contacts.

However the player the majority of United fans will be imploring Magnusson to sign is Carlos Tevez, who said goodbye to his colleagues earlier today before jetting off back to Argentina for the summer.
