New West Ham United signing Sebastien Haller believes that his new club has what it takes to thrive during the upcoming season as reported by the club’s official website. 

“It’s exciting to start to play because I know there is a lot of quality up front,” the Frenchman explained.

“I want to see this and show [my quality] also.

“I feel really great to have signed at West Ham. I think it’s a really good opportunity for me to be here.

“I’m someone who thinks a lot about every choice I make and examine all the details. The possibility to sign here was looking really great so I said yes, we have to do it. And it took just a few days to take this decision, so now it’s real and I feel good.”

The 25-year-old is an impressive signing by the East Londoners. He joins them after having scored an impressive 19 goals in all competitions for Eintracht Frankfurt last season.

He will help to fill the void which has been caused by the West Ham departures of Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll.

Exciting times could lay ahead for the Hammers. The club have already completed the signing of exciting youngster Pablo Fornals while the likes of Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini, Andriy Yarmolenko and Jack Wilshere are all set to be available.

This could leave manager Manuel Pellegrini would a Hammers side which will be able to cause trouble to any defence in the top-flight.

West Ham are currently on pre-season tour in Asia, competing in the Premier League Asia trophy. Haller could be set to make his debut for the club when they face off against Fulham at Craven Cottage a week on Saturday.

The Frenchman is unlikely to be the only striker that arrives at the London Stadium this summer with Jordan Hugill and Javier Hernandez also expected to depart.

Hugill has failed to convince that he is capable of shining for the club since his arrival and he is widely considered to not even be a player who is Premier League quality.

Hernandez has struggled for consistency. The club may only keep him if they do not manage to secure other recognized strikers.
