According to the Polish press, West Ham United are leading the chase for Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
Second in the pecking order behind compatriot Wojciech Szczesny, the former Legia Warsaw man admitted recently that he is desperate to leave the Emirates in search of first team football after a frustrating year which has limited him to a handful of appearances.
Having secured a quick-fire return to the Premier League via the play-offs at the weekend, West Ham, the only side in English football to be managed by a Walrus, are thought to be eyeing Fabianski as a possible successor to Robert Green, with the England man’s future at Upton Park in doubt.
Following an injury to Green earlier in the season, West Ham took Manuel Almunia on an emergency loan proving they will, if desperate, sign pretty much anyone who can put gloves on.
Given Vito Mannone’s desire to also quit N5 it appears that Arsene Wenger may need to go shopping for a new reserve keeper this summer. While whispers suggest young Argentine Damien Martinez will be promoted to the first team, you can’t help but think an experienced head inside the camp could come in useful, especially given our past problems with the position.
