It seems as though Hammers boss David Moyes is intent on signing a new goalkeeper this summer.

West Ham have already been linked with moves to sign Paris Saint-Germain stopper Alphonse Areola (Foot Mercato) and West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone (The Express and Star).

We were also linked with a move for Roma ace Olsen a few weeks ago (Il Romanista).

Our chances of signing the Sweden international seemed dead and buried as he closed in on a move to Lille.

Things now seem to have changed, however.

West Ham can sign Robin Olsen after collapsed Lille transfer

That’s according to Il Romanista.

The door is apparently wide open for the Hammers to swoop in for the 31-year-old goalkeeper.

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. He proved that with some brilliant performances for his country at EURO 2020 this summer.

Perhaps the most appealing thing about Olsen for the West Ham owners is his £4 million price-tag (Il Romanista), however.

We have to say, that would be an absolute steal for a goalkeeper with the Swede’s ability.

And it would be no surprise whatsoever to see the Hammers opt for Olsen rather than Areola or Johnstone.
