Even though he was 33 years of age, there was a feeling that the £7m signing of Lukasz Fabianski during the summer was a smart decision by West Ham United, and that has already proved to be the case.
The Poland international had been known as a reliable man between the sticks for Swansea City before they suffered relegation to the Championship last term, but even though he was part of a side that went down it didn’t put the east London outfit or Manuel Pellegrini off.
Even though he faced competition from Adrian for a spot in the starting XI, the stopper has already made the place his own in the opening weeks of the campaign, even impressing in the opening four Premier League matches this season that all ended in defeat.
Things have certainly improved since then with the former Arsenal man conceding just three times in his last four top-flight appearances, which included matches against Chelsea and Manchester United.
While he is a great shot-stopper, it is his all-round goalkeeping game that is really impressive, as he is commanding and also comfortable with the ball at his feet – something he really perfected during his time at the Liberty Stadium.
Given his current form, the huge amount of Premier League experience he has under his belt and the fact that his contract at the London Stadium doesn’t run out until 2021, it would be hard to argue that the 33-year-old isn’t worth at least £20m, and we want West Ham fans to vote on the poll below to tell us how much they think he should be valued at.
