Bettinelli could make it at West Ham after impressive consistency for Fulham

As reported by The Sun, West Ham United are interested in signing Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli.

What’s the story?

With Joe Hart’s loan deal at the club set to expire at the end of the season and Adrian failing to convince between the sticks at the Hammers, West Ham will be seeking a deal for a goalkeeper this summer.

One man they could make a move for is Fulham shot-stopper Marcus Bettinelli.

That’s according to The Sun, who say David Moyes took in the Craven Cottage side’s mid-week clash against Leeds United to check out the goalkeeper.

Rated at £1.8m by Transfermarkt, he’s of course an achievable target for the Irons, but does he have what it takes to be number one at the London Stadium?

Who is he?

With close to 90 appearances in four seasons with Fulham, the former England youth internationalist has had to work hard for the number one spot at Craven cottage.

This season though he’s emerged as the top choice, making the position his own over David Button and starting almost every match since December.

He’s kept nine clean sheets in that half season, showing the kind of impressive consistency that could make him a hit at the Hammers next season.

An excellent pure shot-stopper, he still has learning and developing to do but at 25-years of age has the room to do that and although he’s not the most fashionable of signings, he could do a job next season for David Moyes.
