Swansea City might have to part ways with their number one goalkeeper, Lukasz Fabianski, following their relegation from the Premier League. The 33-year-old has been a standout performer for the Swans this campaign and for the last 3 seasons as well.
His free transfer from Arsenal has proved to be highly rewarding for the Welsh outfit. However, Fabianski no longer wishes to follow the club into the Championship but still has 12 months left on his contract.
Swansea are believed to be in line with the Polish international’s wishes if their asking price of £5m is met. That is a highly unlikely proposition which might not be met for the veteran shot-stopper.
This leaves some of the formerly relegation-threatened top-flight clubs who could go all in for the 33-year-old.
Joe Hart has just been dismissed from duty by the Hammers from his loan agreement from Manchester City. The Englishman is not expected to return to the London Stadium next term and neither is Adrian expected to stay.
This would leave an open space for the position and David Moyes is on the lookout for able replacements. The Hammers could do with an experienced head the back after experiencing a troubling campaign in the English top-flight.
They might have been saved from a relegation drop but the following season promises nothing if the squad is not bolstered in the coming summer. Getting two players off their wage books will leave them enough room to meet Swansea’s asking price.
Rafael Benitez has done wonders with the loan signing Martin Dubravka to push the team up to the 10th spot of the points table. The Sparta Prague goalkeeper has been nothing short of magnificent for the Tyneside outfit, forcing Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow to take the back seats.
However, his permanent arrival has not been confirmed as of yet which leaves the Spaniard boss scratching his head over the future. Fabianski could definitely fill in to help them make an even better finish in the following campaign.
Heurelho Gomes has just hit 37 and Orestis Karnezis is due to return to Udinese in the coming weeks. The Hornets need an able replacement ahead of the recently acquired Daniel Bachmann.
