Hammers linked to keeper

West Ham are being reported as having become leading contenders to sign Olympiakos goalkeeper Jose Sa.

According to Greek media outlet to Sportime the 26-year-old’s contract at Olympiakos includes a release clause worth £12.8million but apparently  the goalkeeper’s agent Jorge Mendes is not planning a transfer until next summer.

It is understood that there could be interest in Jose Sa when the January transfer window opens but should the Mendes scenario prove to be the case that’s just not going to happen.

It probably isn’t in the summer either  because the keeper is priced at £5 million more than we paid for Lukasz Fabianski and it really wouldn’t make any economic whatsoever to pay that much more for a number 2 with few stoppers going for that sort of money anyway

The Hammers are certainly looking for a keeper and it seems coincidental that when no names had been linked previously suddenly this one has popped up out of nowhere once it becomes known the club are on the look out.

Sounds like media outlet opportunism!

As we revealed this morning whoever is recommended by director of football Mario Husillos in goal or any other position the board and management duo will need to be in unison following what is considered a series of poor buys in the summer

  1. Another untried at Prem level purchase. Im sure he’s an upgrade on the current number two (of a) goal keeper but why not utilise our U 23’s or recall Nathan Trott
