David Moyes might be on the look-out for a new goalkeeper this summer.
Lukasz Fabianski is the Hammers’ undisputed number one goalkeeper. The Polish stopper is 35, however, and his contract with West Ham is up in the summer of 2021.
Darren Randolph is the former Swansea City and Arsenal man’s deputy. But the Irishman, 32, is no spring chicken either.
Then there is David Martin. The 34-year-old is nothing more than a third choice goalkeeper, however. And he understands that as well.
The Hammers do have young talents Nathan Trott and Joseph Anang, however. So it will be interesting to see how much faith Moyes puts in those two next season
He might decide to loan them out of course. And if he does just that, the signing of another goalkeeper might be a wise move.
And the Daily Record claims that Rangers stopper Robby McCrorie is on the Hammers’ radar.
The Gers youngster left Ibrox to join Livingston on loan in January.
Standing at 6ft 4in tall, the 22-year-old cuts an imposing figure.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard loves McCrorie as well. He told Four Four Two just how highly he rates the young goalkeeper:
“I rate him very highly. If Robbie keeps developing at the speed he is then I’ve got no doubt he can come back here and effect the two main positions here for the goalkeeping position.”
Judging by Gerrard’s comments, he will surely want to keep hold of McCrorie.
So West Ham might have their work cut-out if they do intend to sign the 22-year-old Rangers ace this summer.
