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 desperately need to address their goalkeeping department over the course of the next 12 months or so.

Lukasz Fabianski is 36 now and is well past his best. Meanwhile, the Pole’s deputy Darren Randolph is 34 and has never been anything more than an average goalkeeper.

So the Hammers eyeing a move to sign the 23-year-old Fiorentina goalkeeper makes perfect sense.

West Ham Bartlomiej Dragowski plan to be scuppered by Atletico Madrid?

MECZYKI claims that Atletico have already held a meeting with the Polish stopper’s agent.

Missing out on the 23-year-old would be a big blow for West Ham.

We think Dragowski would be an excellent addition to Moyes’s ranks.

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.

La Viola allegedly want around £10 million for Dragowski (News Line).

That would represent great value for West Ham.

It seems as though Atletico Madrid could be set to ruin our plans, however. And that is a real shame.
