West Ham’s 2017/18 season was an underwhelming one, as they finished in 13th in the table with no long-term manager in place.
The season started with Slaven Bilic in charge, however, after a dissapointing start to the season which saw the club languishing in the relegation places, David Moyes took over in November, and nine wins and ten draws later, West Ham sealed their survival in the Premier League.
Over the course of the summer and winter windows, West Ham made seven new signings in an attempt to strengthen their squad.
The marquee signing was Marko Arnautovic from Premier League rivals Stoke City for a fee of around £25 million.
Other notable additions were Joe Hart on loan from Manchester City and midfielder Joao Mario on loan from Inter Milan.
We’ve taken a look at all the signings West Ham have made over the 2017/18 season and rated them on a scale from A to F…
Joe Hart - D
Hart came to West Ham with an obviously good reputation. He has been England’s number one at every major tournament since Euro 2012 as well as Manchester City’s number one over a very successful period at the club.
However, despite a spell of man of the match performances, Hart has only played five games since Moyes took over, making his fair share of mistakes.
Javier Hernandez - C
West Ham fans were delighted when Hernadez came to East London after a highly successful spell at Manchester United.
However, after a good goalscoring spell at the beginning of the season, Chicarito found himself out of the team when Moyes came in. Eight goals in 28 appearances for the Mexican.
Jordan Hugill - F
Hugill joined the Hammers in January for an eyebrow-raising fee of £9.5 million from Championship side Preston North End. The big centre-forward has struggled to force himself into the first team, making three appearances and scoring no goals. Seemed like a panic buy on deadline day.
Joao Mario - B
The Portuguese attacking midfielder has made 13 Premier League appearances, having a positive effect on the team performances.
The Inter Milan man scored two goals and provided one assist in his time at the London Stadium
Marko Arnautovic - A
The Hammers’ best signing of the summer. The Austrian was initially signed as a winger, however, Moyes has transformed him into a central striker in his spell at the club.
Arnautovic finished the season with 11 goals, the most scored in a single season by a West Ham player since Bobby Zamora in 2006/07
Paulo Zabaleta - B
Zabaleta is another player with a good reputation who may be coming towards the end of his career.
The Argentinian joined West Ham after nine years at Man City and since Moyes came in, Zabaleta has been employed in a wing-back role which he has performed well.
Patrice Evra - D
Evra joined in February as he was a free agent after leaving Juventus. Similar to Zabaleta, Evra came with a good reputation after a successful career, however, this may be his last stint before retirement.
The former Manchester United full-back only made five appearances in the West Ham side, failing to displace Cresswell or Masuaku.
