David Moyes is literally searching from Pole to Pole for a new goalkeeper it seems.
Poland international Lukasz Fabianski has been one of the best goalkeepers at West Ham for some time.
Fabianski has recently signed a new one-year deal to keep him at West Ham next season.
Lukasz has been Fab but some West Ham have been linked with several potential successors
But costly mistakes in the defeat to Newcastle – where many felt he should have done better on all three goals – and some poor kicking have raised doubts in the minds of some.
West Ham’s number one turns 37 next season and some supporters feel the club need to bring in a successor this summer.
Moyes has been linked with several goalkeepers ahead of the next window.
Alphonse Areola has been heavily linked with a move to West Ham after impressing on loan from PSG at Fulham (Express).
Moyes going from Pole to Pole for new goalkeeper?
And now Moyes has been linked with a move to replace one Poland international with another, Bartlomiej Dragowski.
Dragowski is a name West Ham fans may well recognise. The club has been heavily linked with the Fiorentina stopper in the past.
Indeed in 2019 – under Manuel Pellegrini – West Ham watched Dragowski several times when he was playing on loan at Empoli (as reported by Tuttomercatoweb at the time).
The 23-year-old is currently at a contract impasse with the Serie A club and is about to go into the last year of his deal.
Rekindled interest from before Moyes’s return will ring alarm bells for some West Ham fans over recruitment
According to the a host of Italian outlets and transfer reporter Nicolo Schira, West Ham are one of the clubs in for Dragowski.
It means West Ham are rekindling old interest in a player they reportedly looked at when Moyes wasn’t at the club.
And that will ring alarm bells for West Ham fans over who is making the recruitment decisions.
Particularly in light of the signing of Said Benrahma. That deal is rumoured to have been led by co-owner David Sullivan against the wishes of Moyes.
The Scot has admitted Eze Eberechi was his first choice and Josh King was his preference over Benrahma according to Claret and Hugh.
