Fabianski is an excellent signing for West Ham

According to club insider ExWHUEmployee, West Ham United have already sealed the signing of Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

What’s the story?

West Ham announced on Tuesday that they had completed the signing of centre-back Issa Diop from Toulouse, with the Frenchman signing a five-year contract at the London Stadium.

According to club insider ExWHUEmployee, the Hammers have also secured a deal for Swansea stopper Fabianski, with a club announcement to follow.

The London club are in the market for a new goalkeeper due to the struggles of Adrian and Joe Hart last season.

The pair shared the gloves in the Premier League last term, but Hart has now left the club to return to Manchester City, whilst Adrian’s future is far from secure.

It is understood that West Ham will pay £7m for the services of the 33-year-old, who is currently with Poland at the 2018 World Cup.

Is Fabianski a good signing?

It has been suggested that £7m is too much for Fabianski, but in the current market, the deal represents sound business.

The 45-time Poland international, who has previously been linked with a return to Arsenal, could not prevent Swansea from being relegated from the Premier League last season, but he had a strong campaign.

Fabianski has actually been in English football since joining Arsenal in 2007, and he spent seven seasons with the Gunners before moving on to Swansea, where he has racked up another 149 Premier League appearances over the last four campaigns.

West Ham need a goalkeeper that will instil confidence, and one capable of slotting straight into the team next season.

Fabianski has been there and done it in terms of English football, and there is no reason why he cannot play at this level for another three or four years.

There are critics of the deal, but West Ham have managed to secure yet another impressive signing following the captures of Ryan Fredericks and Diop.
