Medical completed: West Ham close to deal for 6ft 2 international colossus - report

Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianksi has passed a medical with West Ham, according to a report.

Reliable Hammers news website Claret and Hugh claims that the 33-year-old flew to London before he linked up with his national side Poland for the World Cup and underwent a “discrete medical”.

It is understood that the Poland international is close to joining the Hammers and a deal will be wrapped up imminently.

Football Insider verdict:

Fabianski’s medical has gone under the radar, as it has been revealed it took place last week before he flew out for his international duty. West Ham have been linked with a move for the 6ft 2in (source: Transfermarkt) colossus this summer and it seems like a deal is extremely close. Manager Manuel Pellegirni needs to fix the problem position in goal before the start of the new season and has seen Joe Hart return to Manchester City after his difficult loan spell at the London Stadium. Adrian is good enough to stick around to fight for the number one jersey in the 2018/19 campaign, but the potential addition of Fabianksi alongside him is an exciting prospect. The shot-stopper turned in a really solid year in the most recent season despite seeing his Swansea team relegated and deserves to remain in the top flight. The ex-Arsenal goalkeepers has bags of experience and could be a shrewd bit of business.

In other West Ham transfer news, they are lining up a move for a Manchester United defender.
