ExWHUemployee has urged West Ham to sell Lukasz Fabianski
West Ham have been urged to sell Lukasz Fabianski by ExWHUemployee.
Speaking on the latest edition of the West Ham Way podcast, the Hammers insider called for the Irons to cut their ties with the Polish goalkeeper as he is on the decline.
The former Arsenal keeper is 36 now and has been with the Irons since the summer of 2018. However, it appears as if Ex thinks it is time for him to move on.
He said: “I just don’t think Fabianski has been the same since he had that serious injury.
“He’s not been horrendous, he’s been a steady ‘keeper, but I don’t believe he’s hit the standards that he created when he was Hammer of the Year, and obviously, he’s 35, 36 – so those standards are only going to decline anyway now because of age.
“So, I think it probably is the right time to start looking to move him on at the end of the year.”
Do you agree with Ex?
Fabianski has years and years of experience in the Premier League from his time with the Gunners, Swansea City, and the Irons.
However, he has been a bit injury prone with the Hammers and has missed 20 games through injury, which is quite a lot for a goalkeeper.
However, he has been brilliant for most of the time he has been in goal and won Hammer of the Year during the 2018/19 campaign and helped the Irons have a decent season.
His time though could be coming to an end, and Ex could be right on this one should this run of form and little mistakes continue.
Alphonse Areola is sitting on the sidelines at the moment, but we would be very surprised if he weren’t the first-choice goalkeeper by the end of the season.
If that proves to be the case, then we agree with what Ex is saying, and the Irons should thank Fabianski for his service and let him move on.
