West Ham are eyeing up a move to sign Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Keylor Navas in the January transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Spanish website Marca who claim that the Hammers could face competition from Napoli for the 35-year-old’s signature.
West Ham boss David Moyes actually tried to bring Navas to the London Stadium back in the summer, but he remained with PSG in the end.
Signing another goalkeeper may well be an item on Moyes’s agenda, but if we’re being honest, he doesn’t need to bring in a stopper until next summer.
And certainly not one who will be 36 before the end of this year.
West Ham already have Alphonse Areola, Lukasz Fabianski and youngsters Nathan Trott, Joseph Anang and Krisztián Hegyi coming through the ranks at the London Stadium.
In spite of that, Moyes is allegedly on the lookout for more experience between the sticks…
West Ham eyeing shock Keylor Navas swoop
Marca claim that the Hammers and Napoli are battling it out for the 107-capped Costa Rica stopper’s signature.
I have to say, I find it really hard to believe this rumour. There just wouldn’t be much sense in Moyes bringing in another goalkeeper when there are so many other areas at the London Stadium in need or urgent attention.
The 35-year-old’s contract with PSG expires in the summer of 2024.
Navas possesses an exceptional winning record during his time in the game.
He has an incredible seven league titles to his name as well as three Champions League winner’s medals.
Navas has conceded just 435 goals in 452 games and has kept 165 clean sheets in the process (Transfermarkt).
We have to say though, the addition of another goalkeeper really is the last thing David Moyes needs right now.
West Ham really don’t need to sign Keylor Navas in January. That’s nothing against the Costa Rican, he’s a very good goalkeeper.
Moyes should definitely be focusing his attention elsewhere though.
