The Hammers, Spurs and the Magpies will all be looking to bolster their respective goalkeeping departments this summer.

David Moyes needs to bring in more quality competition for Lukasz Fabianski at the London Stadium.

Ryan Mason, or whoever gets the full-time Tottenham job, will surely be keen to upgrade on Hugo Lloris.

And Steve Bruce may be concerned with Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow facing uncertain futures at St James’ Park.

West Ham, Tottenham and Newcastle chasing Agustin Marchesin?

Pedro Almeida claims the Premier League trio are all keen to sign the Porto stopper:

Now, Almeida has a history of being bang on the money, usually with transfers involving Portuguese and Brazilian sides.

So the fact that his claim involves a Portuguese club means that we should keep a close eye on this one.

The Argentina international has a great record with Porto.

 

He has let in just 66 goals in 78 appearances for the Portuguese giants, and has kept 39 clean sheets in the [process (Transfermarkt).

Marchesin stands at 6ft 2in tall so he isn’t the biggest of goalkeepers. He is an excellent shot-stopper, however, and is very comfortable with the ball at his feet.

Whether Porto will be ready to sell the 33-year-old remains to be seen, however.

And it’s anyone’s guess as to whether he will end up at West Ham, Tottenham or Newcastle next season.

Pedro Almeida is very reliable, however. So were cannot simply dismiss this one.
