We’ve already covered the rather suspicious Robin Olsen to West Ham story that’s been circulating in the Italian media of late, voicing our doubts about it in the process.

Having already signed two backups for Lukasz Fabianski this transfer window, the need for a new goalkeeper really isn’t high at London Stadium, meaning the Hammers aren’t exactly open to a move for the Sweden international.

That’s why Gazzetta dello Sport explain on Monday that a ‘pair of intermediaries are probing the European markets’ to see if they can find a ‘good offer for Robin Olsen’.

West Ham are directly mentioned in the story, claiming that both Manuel Pellegrini’s side and Fenerbahce are ‘still there’.

However, the two clubs are allegedly ‘waiting to be convinced’ that buying the shot stopper would be a ‘good solution’ for them.

It doesn’t look like there’s much of a market for Olsen these days, and it’s never a good sign when it’s players and intermediaries trying to convince clubs to take a gamble on them rather than it being the other way around.
