Swansea stopper Lukasz Fabianski has admitted that there is something in the strong speculation that has suggested he will join West Ham United.
The Polish keeper, who is in Russia with his country for the World Cup, was a standout performer for the Swans last season even though it ended up in relegation. And, that has prompted the Hammers to lodge a £7m bid for the 33-year old keeper.
It’s unlikely that anything will be sorted whilst he is on international duty but as quoted by Przeglad Sportowy he revealed that there is some truth to the West Ham rumours.
“Let’s wait for a while, but I will not lie, there is something in it. My club matters are crystallising right now, but I do not know when everything will be clear. I am waiting patiently.”
Fabianski isn’t the only Swansea player West Ham are interested in with the London outfit also keen on defender Alfie Mawson, another of the better performers from the disappointing campaign last season.
Most Swansea fans will be resigned to the fact that Fabianski is leaving as he still is a very good Premier League keeper.
Clearly, going from his comments a move to West Ham looks close and he will be a good addition for them.
For Swansea though, it’s about getting the best fee possible and beginning the search for a new keeper but it will be a tough task to replace the former Arsenal man.
