Big Sam & West Ham strapped for transfer cash

With just 10 days remaining before the transfer window closes, a number of Premier League clubs are still trying to make big money signings to add quality to their squads for the 2013-14 season.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident of making new signings and Goal understands Real Madrid pair Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria are among his targets.

Manchester United, meanwhile, continue to pursue Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini, while Tottenham's attempt to sign Willian could be thwarted by Chelsea, who have made a late move for the Brazilian and will bid again for Wayne Rooney.

Spare a thought, then, for West Ham manager Sam Allardyce, who wants to make more transfer deadline purchases, but is simply out of funds.

"I've got no more money left," he told reporters on Thursday. "So the squad I've got is the squad I've got."
