West Ham United are said to be on the verge of signing Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski in a £7m deal, as covered by The Sun.
The Hammers are in the market for at least one new goalkeeper this summer following Joe Hart’s return to parent club Manchester City.
The future of Spanish stopper Adrian is far from secure, meanwhile, and it might well be that the London club have to bring two first-team goalkeepers to the London Stadium this summer.
Manchester United’s Sam Johnstone has been linked with West Ham, but it is now being reported that Swansea stopper Fabianski is heading to the English capital.
The West Ham fans have been reacting to the potential deal, and it would be fair to say that they have contrasting opinions when it comes to the 33-year-old.
Swansea might have struggled last season, but Fabianski had another solid Premier League campaign, and the Poland international has more than prove himself at this level.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the West Ham supporters can be seen below:
✔ Made more saves (369) than any other keeper since the start of the 2015/16 Premier League season.
✔ One of the top 3 keepers across Europe’s best five leagues last season for most saves (136).

The guy might be fine but save volume doesn’t mean much. Just means he faced a lot of shots.

oDecent keeper but wrong side of 30. You would expect keepers at relegated clubs to be busy: not sure you can read too much in to the most saves statistic: he’s played in a team that eventually got relegated. Upgrade on Randolph and Joe Hart.

Will be competition for Adrian but not sure he is any better. Both good shot stoppers and both prone to errors

Let’s see those stats as a ratio of goals conceded v saves made, then it might be worth getting excited about.
£7m for a 33yr old is high
