Report: West Ham want to bring international goalkeeper back to the Premier League

West Ham want to sign Brescia goalkeeper Jesse Joronen, according to a report from Brescia Sport.

Hammers boss David Moyes needs to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

The additions of a new left-back, right-back, centre-back and centre forward should be at the very top of Moyes’s agenda.

We are fairly well-stocked in the goalkeeping department, however.


Lukasz Fabianski, 35, is West Ham’s undisputed number one stopper. The Polish ace did seem to struggle after returning from injury last season, however. And he is already in the twilight years of his career.

And Fab’s backup Darren Randolph, 33, is far from elite. We do have Nathan Trott and Joseph Anang coming through the ranks at the London Stadium. But neither of them are ready for Premier League football just yet.

So it could actually be argued that we are actually in need of signing a new goalkeeper going forward.

But it clearly shouldn’t be our priority.

Nevertheless, Brescia Sport are claiming that West Ham boss Moyes wants to sign Brescia stopper Jesse Joronen this summer. The Hammers could face competition from Napoli, however.

The 27-year-old Finland international has experience of playing in England before having spent eight years with Fulham.

He is hardly of the required standard to help West Ham improve, however.


Joronen conceded 59 goals in 29 league games for Brescia last season, keeping just five clean sheets in the process (Transfermarkt).

In fact, his career record makes for pretty grim reading with 161 goals conceded in 232 games (Transfermarkt).

West Ham will surely be better off investing money elsewhere this summer.
