West Ham set to bid £10.7 million for Agustin Marchesin - report

West Ham are ready to make a £10.7 million offer for Porto goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin according to a report from A Bola.

Hammers boss David Moyes will be keen to bolster his goalkeeping ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Łukasz Fabianski, 36, is clearly on the decline. His form hasn’t been great over the past year and his consistent injury problems will be a real concern for Moyes.

Meanwhile, Fab’s back-up Darren Randolph, 34, is nothing more than an average goalkeeper.

West Ham really do need to upgrade in that particular position this summer.

The Hammers have already been linked with a plethora of goalkeepers including the likes of Sam Johnstone and Alphonse Areola (ExWHUemployee)

West Ham ready to bid for Agustin Marchesin

A Bola claims that the Hammers are ready to bid €12 million (£10.7 million) for the 33-year-old stopper.

The trouble is that Marchesin has a €50 million (£43 million) release clause inserted into his current contract with Porto (A Bola).

The 33-year-old is a very solid goalkeeper. He let in just 35 goals in 43 games for Porto this season whilst keeping 22 clean sheets in the process (Transfermarkt).

The seven-capped Argentina international is vastly experienced.

If we are being honest though, surely it would be better for Moyes to go for Johnstone or Areola.

What would be the point in replacing one ageing goalkeeper with another?

We just think that it would be somewhat of a backwards step for the Hammers.
