West Ham set to get rid of 145-app star very soon

Former Premier League footballer Noel Whelan has spoken about Lukasz Fabianski and his future at West Ham United.

Fabianski is now 37 and still starting in the Premier League for West Ham despite being in the final 12 months of his current contract, but the Hammers have the option of extending it for another year.

The London club have a young goalkeeper in Alphonse Areola waiting to take over from the bench and Whelan, who spoke to Football Insider about Fabianski, believes West Ham will soon be leaving the Polish keeper.

“It’s a really tough position to be in as a player and as a club,” Whelan said of Fabianski’s future.

“When you have someone his age – and it’s the end of his career – it’s difficult.

“I know goalkeepers can keep playing well into their 40s, but the game is becoming more and more about distribution and being able to have the ball at your feet now.

“I think if the club is looking to get rid of Lanzini to bring in younger players and try to bring longevity and stability, I think West Ham will want fresh blood.

“He’s done a great job, but they’ll want someone who can go further for their success now.”
