West Ham have progressed significantly under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini, benefitting from a vast spending spree in the summer.
The Hammers have shown their willingness to improve further already this month by bringing former Premier League winner Samir Nasri back to English football on a free transfer and some fans have been debating whether a similar deal should be explored.
One supporter pointed out that former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has been released from his contract in China and stated his belief that the 31-year-old Nigerian would be a good addition to bolster the depth of the squad.

We have gathered some of their comments below.
