According to a recent report, Lopetegui and the Hammers have negotiated terms for the Spaniard to take Moyes’ place at the end of the current campaign. It is understood that Bayern Munich has not made any approach towards the Spaniard.

It looks as though Lopetegui’s arrival at the London Stadium will soon be announced, as BBC Sport states that West Ham intends to name the 57-year-old boss “later this week”.

Once Lopetegui has signed a contract, he is reportedly going to be permitted to take over the Hammers for the start of preseason, which involves a two-week tour to the USA for matches against Crystal Palace and previous club Wolves.

Having previously coached Porto and Rayo Vallecano, Lopetegui managed Wolves in November 2022, his first season as a Premier League manager. The Old Gold were at the bottom of the league when he took over, but they finished the 2022–2023 season in 13th place, eight points above the relegation zone.

On the eve of the 2023–24 season, Lopetegui left Molineux by mutual consent after leading Wolves to safety after winning 10 of his 27 games in command. The reason for this was disagreements with the club’s transfer funds.

According to reports, Premier League clubs have approved the introduction of a development plan that will curb spending beginning with the 2025–2026 season.

The spending cap proposals were approved by 16 teams, and their goal is to keep the gap between the Premier League’s lower-half teams and its financial titans from growing.

Nevertheless, a report from BBC Sport claims that three teams vying for European football—Manchester United, Manchester City, and Aston Villa—are thought to have voted against the proposal.
