According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Alaves want to sign West Ham goalkeeper Roberto this summer, having been very impressed with him during his loan spell with the club. And some Hammers fans have reacted on Twitter to the speculation.
In other news…Klopp reportedly wants to sell 2017 signing, he’d fit Moyes’s West Ham vision perfectly
The Spaniard, who earns £30,000 per week (Spotrac) proved to be a real disaster signing for West Ham after he was brought to the London Stadium by Manuel Pellegrini in the summer of 2019.
In fact, it could be argued that the hapless goalkeeper cost the Chilean his job.
He played 10 games for West Ham, and let in 21 goals, keeping only one clean sheet in the process (Transfermarkt).
Spaniard’s stay in the East End could be a short one
David Moyes swiftly moved Roberto on when he took charge of the Hammers for a second time.
The 34-year-old left east London to link up with Alaves on loan. And now Mundo Deportivo are claiming that the La Liga side are keen to make that loan deal a permanent one.
In truth, Roberto quite simply isn’t good enough to be playing Premier League football. So if any club is willing to take him off West Ham’s hands, it would be an absolutely superb result.
And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in utter shock at the fact that there reportedly is a club willing to pay a fee for the goalkeeper…
Alaves must have the lowest standards and expectations of their goalkeepers ever known in club football

Christ they must have such low expectations of what a keeper should be able to do if they are impressed by him. Take him 👌🏻 I’d accept a packet of hobnobs and a copy of the big issue magazine as payment.
