West Ham are eyeing a move for Fiorentina goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski but face competition from Southampton for his signature.
That’s according to Viola News, who say both clubs have ‘asked for information’ regarding the 23-year-old Polish stopper.
The website explains that Fiorentina’s priorities at this moment in time are elsewhere, but the transfer window could bring news on the goalkeeper front.
That’s because ‘a number of English clubs are interested’ in Dragowski, with West Ham and Southampton, as well as Tottenham and Wolves all having ‘asked for information’ about him.
Fiorentina will decide what to do with that interest and evaluate Dragowski with their new coach as they hunt for a replacement for Gennaro Gattuso after his short reign.
In the meantime, though, they are looking at possible replacements and have already eyed up Juventus’ Mattia Perin, who is looking for a new club, and his agent, Alessandro Lucci, has been sounding out Fiorentina.
At the moment, Perin is only an idea, but he could become a serious option if Dragowski is sold, which is a distinct possibility.
West Ham and Southampton’s interest in the player makes a lot of sense, with the Hammers needing a replacement for Lukasz Fabianski at some point and none of Southampton’s goalkeepers impressing last season.
At the minute, it seems their interest is just a passing one, but that could change in the coming weeks.
