West Ham fans have been discussing making a shock swoop for Liverpool laughing stock Loris Karius, but fans are split on making the move.
West Ham secured one of the bargains of the summer when they signed Lukasz Fabianski from Swansea, but the goalkeeper situation isn’t exactly perfect.
While Adrian is a fan favourite for his passion and love for the club, the Spaniard isn’t really up to standard, proven by the fact that he couldn’t even consistently dislodge Joe Hart from the team last season.
Fabianski is a fantastic goalkeeper, but the Hammers are one injury or suspension away from being right back where they were last season, so some fans have been eyeing up a potential new number two.
Karius has been linked with a move away from Liverpool, as the German is disappointed by the Reds’ record signing of Alisson Becker.
The Telegraph says the goalkeeper could lead a mass summer fire sale at Anfield, and some West Ham fans are eyeing a swoop.
The 25 year-old has become the laughing stock of the football world after his Champions League final blunders and subsequent pre-season mishaps, but he actually had some pretty impressive performances before the match in Kiev, recording the most Champions League clean sheets of any keeper last season.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where some fans think it would be a shrewd move, others think it’s downright insane, and one has got a different idea altogether…
Sell Adrian and sign Karius?
