My question is:
I (want/hope/wish) him to come tomorrow.
Which verb is the best answer, and why?
And why the others are not suitable?
Thanks a lot!!

1. I want him to come tomorrow.
==> 'want' takes a noun as its object.
2. I hope he comes tomorrow.
==> 'hope' takes a sentence as its object.
3. I wish he would come tomorrow.
==> 'wish' also takes a sentence as its object.
'wish' can also take a nominal as its object:
4. I wish him well.
5. I wish him the best.
6. I wish the best for him.
All the best,
