David Moyes may well be keen to improve his goalkeeping department at the London Stadium this summer.

Lukasz Fabianski and Darren Randolph are 36 and 34 respectively whilst Nathan Trott is not ready for regular Premier League football.

It seems as though a former Premier League player is attracting attention from West Ham and Moyes.

West Ham chasing Robin Olsen

AS claims that the 31-year-old stopper is currently looking for a way out at Roma.

Olsen spent last season on loan with Everton and made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Toffees.

During those outings, the 48-capped Sweden international conceded 16 goals and kept three clean sheets in the process (Transfermarkt).

Standing at 6ft 5in tall, Olsen cuts an imposing figure. He is commanding in the air and is a very good shot-stopper.

The Swede is a very competent goalkeeper.

Whether he will get his wish and be allowed to leave Roma remains to be seen.

If he does though, we’d take him at West Ham all day long. Beating Atletico Madrid to his signature may well prove tricky, however.
