According to a report from Football Insider, West Ham’s Director of Football Mario Husillos is leading the search for a new goalkeeper with Premier League experience.

The Hammers have real problems in the goalkeeping department.

Lukasz Fabianski picked up an injury at the end of September. And he is not expected back until early January.

Roberto has been filling in for the Pole, and the Spaniard is just a walking disaster waiting to happen.

He has conceded 11 goals in his last five appearances for West Ham. And his calamitous displays have already begun to rub off on the rest of the team.


It is clear to see that Roberto is quite simply not good enough for the Premier League.

And Football Insider claims that West Ham are already planning to address that. The Hammers reportedly want to sign a goalkeeper with Premier League experience and the search is being led by the under-fire Director of Football Mario Husillos.

The South American is under real pressure at West Ham. His latest batch of signings have not been successful whatsoever, and the jury is out on the 60-year-old.

Quite who West Ham could be targeting remains to be seen. But if they want to sign a goalkeeper with Premier League experience, that will not come cheap.

So the club’s owners will need to be ready to spend some cash on a back-up goalkeeper – something that they have not done during their reign in charge of the club.
