Lukasz Fabianski is reportedly days from transferring to West Ham from Swansea City – and fans have taken to Twitter to deliver mostly positive verdicts.
Hammers blog Claret and Hugh, which has the inside track on the club, claim the Polish goalkeeper is firmly on course to become the Londoners’ second summer signing after Ryan Fredericks, which has also been emphasised by the ultra-reliable Ex-WHU Employee Twitter account.
Claret and Hugh report West Ham have agreed a fee with Swansea for the transfer of Fabianski and he will pen a deal that matches his current £50,000-a-week package within hours and by the weekend at the latest.
The Premier League club are in the market for a new keeper after Joe Hart returned to Manchester City following his season-long loan.
Fabianski has made 150 appearances for Swansea after joining from Arsenal in the summer of 2014 and has firmly established himself as their number one.
Capped 44 times by Poland, he is aged 33 and has a year remaining on his Liberty Stadium contract.
A section of fans took to Twitter to react to speculation a deal is all but done, with one hailing him as a “next level signing” while another stated he is a “waste of money”.
Here are the tweets:

Is there any chance fabianski is to replace Adrian and we will also go in for another gk or is that just wishful thinking?

Next level signing
Do you know if the club see him as our new No.1 keeper? Adrian seems to be threatening to leave again.

Not happy on tbis tbh. We should be looking at a younger keeper to have for many years to come. Plus with the nick name flapianski.. just as erratic as Adrian.. not an improvement at all.

He is steady Paul and reasonably priced, if we spend 20-30 mill on a keeper that restricts money on midfielders where for me it’s a priority. Better than Adrian for sure and did a good job last season. Defence coming along nicely in my opinion
