Viola News recently claimed that Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 23-year-old stopper to the London Stadium this summer.
West Ham’s need for a new goalkeeper is an incredibly pressing one.
Lukasz Fabianski is now 36 and is clearly on the decline. His injury problems should be a huge concern for David Moyes as well.
Meanwhile, the Pole’s deputy Darren Randolph just isn’t at the standard required to perform consistently at the very highest level.
Tottenham to beat West Ham to Dragowski?
La Nazione claims that Spurs are ready to gazump the Hammers in the race to sign the 23-year-old stopper.
And that would be a huge shame for the East London outfit.
Dragowski would be absolutely perfect for us. He’s available for a bargain fee as well – just £12.8 million according to La Nazione.
Standing at 6ft 3in tall, the Pole cuts an imposing figure. He commands his penalty area with authority and is an impressive communicator. The 23-year-old is a pretty decent shot-stopper too.
Dragowski probably has at least 12 or 13 years left playing at the highest level. That makes the reported £12.8 million fee seem even better value for money.
Missing out on the 23-year-old would be bad enough but losing out to Tottenham would be make it a really bitter pill to swallow.
The Fiorentina ace has all the makings of a truly top class goalkeeper. And considering our deficiencies in that particular department, Dragowski would be the perfect summer addition.
It seems as though we will have to fight Tottenham off in order to bring the Polish ace to the London Stadium, however.
