The Shopping Basket - May 1

Name: Daniel Senn
From: Buchs, Switzerland
Suggestion: Charles Amoah (Sturm Graz, Austria)
Why: Amoah plays for Sturm Graz in Austria. He was a great forward for St. Gallen (current Swiss Champions) over the last two years and also their top scorer. He has a natural instinct for goals - and has a similar style to Frank McAvennie. says: Interesting suggestion Daniel but, with all due respect, a regular scorer in the Swiss or Austrian leagues may not find life as easy in the Premiership. Amoah will be only be judged on what he does in the Champions' League with Graz next season if they qualify.

Name: Jeff Thorpe
From: Tiverton
Suggestion: Dwight Yorke (Manchester United)
Why: We need a proven quality goalscorer and with him probably surplus to requirements at the mancs, we might be able to get him - plus he could get Shaka to sign his contract as well!

Name: Martin Burns
From: Hemel Hempstead
Suggestion: Dwight Yorke (Manchester United)
Why: He won't get a first team place at Man U when the Dutchman arrives and he'd love the London nightclubs (as long as he scores goals who cares!)

Name: Mark Thomas
From: Chadwell Heath
Suggestion: Dwight Yorke (Manchester United)
Why: Manchester United have just brought the Ruud Boy and so are looking to offload one or two of their strikers. He would be ideal as he is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League, he would cost between £8-10m but as Harry keeps saying we need to bring in a couple of top quality signings and so now is the chance to do that. says: Yorke has understandably been tipped as the man to make way for Nistelrooj but, in all honesty, do United need to sell him? If he demands a transfer, it may be a different story, although his old club Aston Villa would probably be favourites to sign him. The lure of London may be appealing to him but we shouldn't be signing any player who might be more interested in the nightlife than the football.

Name: Malcolm Howard
From: Maidstone
Suggestion: Matthew Upson (Arsenal)
Why: He's not getting a go in the first team at Arsenal at the moment and I've watched him play at Under 21 level. He's got a good future and would strengthen the squad. We are lacking a decent centre back (I won't harp on about Ferdinand!). It will be interesting to see how Hayden Foxe develops though. says: Harry Redknapp has already announced his intention to purchase a top class centre-half this summer, and there are many who feel that Upson has only been held back by the performances of Adams and Keown at Highbury. However, with the Hammers boss looking for someone with 'presence', he may feel that Upson does not yet have the experience to become a true leader in the heart of the defence.

Name: Stuart Kipling
From: Essex
Suggestion: Titus Bramble (Ipswich Town)
Why: Because he is a class player who seems to improve game by game, he could be one for the long term and help West Ham back into the top eight where they should be. says: With Ipswich already guaranteed European football next season, there is no chance that Bramble will be leaving Portman Road this year. The Tractor Boys would also demand an absolute fortune for his services.

Name: Peter Corbett
From: Chelmsford
Suggestion: John Hartson (Coventry City)
Why: A true blood and guts centre forward, he's lost the weight he put on prior to us unloading him and proved against us earlier in the season that he can still be a handful who will always get goals. He could be just what we need to play alongside the trickery of Di Canio and could forge another partnership similar to the one with Berkovic. says: Big John has been in frightening form since arriving at Highfield Road - as he was back in 1997 when Harry Redknapp swooped for him. He needs to prove that he can keep it going for longer than half a season though and it will be interesting to watch his progress next season. The chance to bring him back on the cheap after flogging him for £7.5m would probably appeal to Harry, but watch his price rise again if he keeps Coventry in the top flight and then has a stormer next campaign.

Name: Heath Monk
From: London
Suggestion: Damien Duff (Blackburn Rovers)
Why: We need an attacking left-sided midfielder - the home form hasn't been the same since Skippy left. Duff is an exciting prospect. says: Duff may already be on Harry's shortlist when it comes to looking for a left-sided midfielder. He has played well against the Hammers in the past and has not always been a regular at Blackburn. However, times are exciting again at Ewood Park and it's doubtful that Graeme Souness would agree to selling one of his young stars.

Name: Anthony Baker
From: Dundonald
Suggestion: Sol Campbell (Tottenham Hotspur)
Why: After losing such a great talent in Rio we have lacked that bit of class in the defence and I feel if West Ham could purchase Sol it would be a sensational buy .He would bring that bit of class back to our defence. And we could start building on top of that with more quality defenders to partner Sol. says: It certainly would be a sensational buy Anthony - in fact it would also be a miracle! While it looks increasingly likely that the England man will leave White Hart Lane this summer, it is a sad fact that Champions' League football would be high on his list of priorities. And with the likes of Arsenal, Barcelona and Manchester United keen to secure his services, it 's certain that he will get his wish.

Name: Oliver Fairlamb
From: Sutton
Suggestion: Josep Guardiola (Barcelona)
Why: We need a good passer in the middle of the park who puts his foot in when they need to and theres no one better than Pep Guardiola. He is out of contract at the end of the season so it makes sense. says: No doubting his quality Oliver, but hasn't Michael Carrick excelled in exactly the same job for the Hammers this season? Guardiola would be looking for astronomical wages at this stage of his career and it's quite likely that he would be coveted by his old manager Bobby Robson should he decide to come to England.
