West Ham United‘s goalkeeping department is set for a shake-up this summer. The club is reportedly in advanced talks with FC Copenhagen for the permanent transfer of 25-year-old goalkeeper Nathan Trott.

A product of West Ham’s academy, Trott has only made one senior appearance for the club. He has primarily featured on loan stints, highlighting his desire for regular starting opportunities. A move to Copenhagen could provide him with the platform he craves.

The Hammers recently released their third-choice goalkeeper, Joseph Anang, indicating a desire for change within the department. New manager Julen Lopetegui is also seeking a new goalkeeper, potentially to replace the aging Lukasz Fabianski.

Trott’s departure benefits both parties. He gets the chance to become a first-team regular, while West Ham receives a transfer fee and opens up a spot in their goalkeeping ranks.

West Ham has been heavily linked with a free transfer for experienced goalkeeper Wes Foderingham. The move is expected to be finalised following Trott’s departure.

West Ham’s attempt to acquire Brazilian goalkeeper Carlos Miguel seems to have fallen through as well, with Nottingham Forest reportedly leading the race for his signature.
