West Ham looking at 29-yr-old as a long-term replacement for first team star

West Ham United have been linked with a move for the Bologna goalkeeper Lukasz  Skorupski.

According to Tutto Bologna Web, the likes of Crystal Palace, Brighton, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa are keeping tabs on the Serie A goalkeeper as well.

The Hammers need to start planning for life without Lukasz Fabianski and his compatriot Skorupski could prove to be a quality long term addition.

The West Ham goalkeeper is currently 35 and he will be past his peak soon.

The Bologna keeper has done well in Italian football and the 29-year-old has the quality to succeed in the Premier League as well.

Skorupski has a contract with the Italian club until the summer of 2023 and he is unlikely to come cheap this summer. It remains to be seen whether the Hammers can convince the Italian club to part with their first-choice shot-stopper for a reasonable fee.

The Polish goalkeeper has extremely good reflexes and he is very agile. However, he might need to improve on his presence in order to cope with the physicality of English football.

Wolves and Villa have excellent keepers like Rui Patricio and Emiliano Martinez at their disposal and therefore a move for Skorupski would be surprising. Furthermore, the 29-year-old is unlikely to want to join a club where he won’t be a regular starter.

A move to West Ham makes more sense for him. The likes of Palace and Brighton are not as ambitious as the Hammers.
