LONDON - West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic is keen to bring in one more player before the transfer window closes on August 31, but admits he may have to rush through another deal if he loses someone from his tight squad.

West Ham have strengthened with five new players including striker Javier Hernandez, defender Pablo Zabaleta and winger Marko Arnautovic but there has been speculation Argentine Manuel Lanzini was being lined up by Liverpool.

"We will see what happens in the last week of the transfer window, if somebody is going to leave or come in," Bilic told reporters ahead of Wednesday's League Cup match against Cheltenham Town.

"I'm happy with the squad now. I would like to have one more and after that, if somebody leaves we have to fill that gap because we don't have a big squad ... We are happy but if somebody leaves we have to be ready to act."

West Ham, who have lost their opening two league games of the new season, travel to Newcastle United when Premier League action resumes on Saturday. 

Meanwhile, Swansea City manager Paul Clement says Sam Clucas will offer the side versatility after the midfielder completes his move from Hull City but is still keen to bring in more signings before the transfer window closes.

British media put the fee for the 26-year-old at around 15 million pounds ($19.23 million).

"He is a good footballer and that is what we want here," Clement told reporters. "The fact he can play in so many positions reinforces that he is a good footballer.

"This is the first one (signing) in the latter parts of the window and hopefully we can do a couple more," Clement said after Tuesday's 4-1 win over MK Dons in the League Cup.

Swansea return to Premier League action on Saturday when they travel to Crystal Palace.
