West Ham United have made an inquiry about the availability of Roma goalkeeper Robin Olsen, according to a report published by TuttoMercatoWeb.

The 29-year-old arrived at the Stadio Olimpico last summer with heavy expectation as a replacement for Alisson but he failed to live up to expectations.

It appears that Roma are prepared to cut their losses with the reported West Ham target as they have already signed Pau Lopez from Real Betis.

The Swede went on to make 35 appearances in all competitions last season.

A move from West Ham really does not make sense. At 29-years-old, Olsen is at the peak of his career and will likely not want to serve as an understudy at his next club.

The Hammers are currently sorted in the goalkeeping department. They have Lukasz Fabianski as first-choice.

The Polish international was one of the top keepers in the top-flight last season while the likes of Roberto and David Martin who joined the club this summer arrive with plenty of experience and will be able to provide solid cover.

West Ham would be better of investing in another striker. They have bid farewell to Marko Arnautovic, Andy Carroll and Lucas Perez so far this summer.

They have so far signed Sebtastien Haller. The Frenchman will be expected to lead the line for the Hammers next season and arrives with an impressive reputation from Eintract Frankfurt. However, he will require support and another quality striker is needed.
