That’s because Real Sociedad have allegedly dropped out of the race for the Sweden international’s signature.

David Moyes definitely needs to bolster his goalkeeping department at the London Stadium.

There are question marks as to whether it should be one of the Scot’s priorities this summer, however.

In spite of that, Foot Mercato and L’Equipe reported that West Ham are in talks to sign Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.

There is allegedly another stopper on the Hammers’ radar, however.

West Ham have free run at Robin Olsen

Il Romanista claims that Sociedad have dropped out of the race to sign the 31-year-old, clearing the path for the East London outfit to make their move.

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.

The 31-year-old could be available for just £4 million this summer according to Il Romanista.

That kind of bargain will obviously prove to be very attractive to our owners.
