West Ham linked with Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen


West Ham United have asked about Swedish international goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

According to AS, Atletico Madrid are also keen on the experienced goalkeeper, while Lille and Real Sociedad have made enquiries.

The Swedish international was on loan at Everton last season and was quite impressive for his country in the European Championships this summer.

The Hammers could definitely use another goalkeeper as a back-up to Lukasz Fabianski, and Olsen could prove to be a reasonably good addition.

His parent club Roma are looking to sell him this summer, and it would be fair to assume that the player could be available for a reasonable price.

The 31-year-old has a contract with the Italian club until 2023, but he is unlikely to stay if he cannot play regularly.

He could be an experienced alternative to Fabianski in the coming seasons. The West Ham goalkeeper is 36-years-old, and they need to start planning for life without him.

Olsen joined Everton as competition for Jordan Pickford last season but played just 11 games for the Merseyside outfit across all competitions.

He knows the Premier League and could adapt quickly and make an immediate impact for the Londoners next season.
