The Hammers have completed deals already this summer for Norwegian midfielder Nordtveit, who has joined from Borussia Moenchengladbach, and Algeria winger Feghouli, who has been snapped up on a free after he saw out his Valencia contract.

Bilic is pleased with the new arrivals but he has made it clear his priority in the transfer market is still a seasoned frontman, who can help fire his side further up the Premier League table next season.

“Hats off to the West Ham board for signing Sofiane Feghouli on a free transfer from Valencia!” he wrote in his MailOnline Euro 2016 column.

“We are proud and glad that he and Havard Nordtveit, the captain of Borussia Moenchengladbach, have signed for us because other big clubs were trying for them.

“Everyone knows we want a top-class striker. And if we can get a 20-goals-a-season man, there’s no reason why we can’t improve on last season and challenge the Premier League’s top teams.”
