Newcastle United and West Ham have ‘requested’ Roma goalkeeper Pau López this summer, with Roma ready to sell the Spaniard.
That’s according to Calciomercato, who report that the Italian side are ‘thinking’ about a change in goal and giving up Lopez.
They believe selling him would allow them to make a decent profit and add much-needed funds to their budget and have already identified replacements for him, with Daniel Fuzato and Pierluigi Gollini on their list.
First, though, they will have to ship out López, and it seems that they have interest from the Premier League for him.
The website states that West Ham and Newcastle have both ‘requested’ the goalkeeper this summer – in other words, they’ve made their appreciation of him clear to Roma.
The Serie A side, for their part, are evaluate him at €30m, which his lower than previous reports, which stated they would want at least €40m for the 25-year-old.
Whether either side will be willing to pay that isn’t mentioned, nor is whether the player would be keen on joining West Ham or Newcastle given it’d be something of a drop down.
It’s also unclear whether he’d contemplate a return to England at all given his short-lived and very unsuccessful stint with Tottenham.
Either way, it appears there is interest, and it would not be surprising to see that become something more solid as the summer progresses.
