West Ham looked as though they were doomed to get relegated to the Championship last season. However, manager Slaven Bilic was sacked and former Manchester United boss David Moyes was brought in to replace him. Under the guidance of the Scot, West Ham managed to finish the league in 13th place, ensuring their place for the next Premier League campaign.

The form of Marko Arnautovic was a huge relief to the Hammer’s faithful. The player enjoyed a successful campaign and relished playing as the striker, scoring 11 goals in the league.

The Hammers culminated a total of 48 goals but they conceded a whopping 68. Thus, the defence is a major area of concern for the Hammers and they are in dire need of a defender and a goalkeeper.

The departure of Manchester City goalkeeper, Joe Hart, will come as a massive blow for the London-based outfit. Hart who was on loan with the club but now, he will now return to City. Hence, West Ham need to find a new man between the sticks.

Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has been reportedly linked with the Hammers. The Welsh club needed a mammoth goal difference to beat Southampton to avoid the drop on the final day but they failed in their quest to do so. With the team playing in the Championship next season, Fabianksi could be on the lookout to return to the Premier League.

Fabianski is a proven goalkeeper in the top-flight. The 33-year-old has made 181 appearances for Swansea and maintained 51 clean sheets since his signing in 2014.

The Polish international made 38 appearances in the league last season, maintaining 9 clean sheets along the way. He also made a whopping 137 saves over that time. Fabianski is an exceptional goalkeeper with impressive shot-stopping ability.

Swansea initially wanted a fee of £9million for the player, who has a year left on his contract. But West Ham are willing to pay a sum of £7million.  Regardless, West Ham must make this deal happen as soon as possible. The addition of Lukasz Fabianski would be fantastic and he would certainly help improve West Ham’s defensive record next season.
