West Ham have announced the signing of Poland goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski from Swansea.

The 33-year-old joins the Irons on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee following the Welsh club’s relegation from the Premier League.

“West Ham is a massive club, so I’m really happy to be joining at such an exciting time here. I will do my best on and off the pitch to help the team to achieve the best results possible and can’t wait to start this new chapter of my career,” Fabianski said on West Ham’s website.

Former Legia Warsaw and Arsenal goalkeeper Fabianski is currently at the World Cup with Poland, where he was on the bench for Tuesday’s opening Group H defeat by Senegal in Moscow.

The deal follows swiftly after the club confirmed the signing of defender Issa Diop from Toulouse on Tuesday evening for a club-record fee, reported to be £22million, with full-back Ryan Fredericks having also come in from Fulham on a free transfer.

Fabianski, who had joined Swansea in May 2014, looks set to compete with Spaniard Adrian as new West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini reshapes his squad for the upcoming campaign, which starts at Liverpool.

West Ham director of football Mario Husillos said: “Lukasz is an experienced and established Premier League goalkeeper, with great quality that he has shown at both domestic and international level.

“He fits perfectly the mould of the modern goalkeeper, with excellent agility, presence and distribution, and will bring strong competition to the position.”

Clement Lenglet has become a star in La Liga.

Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet will become Barcelona‘s first signing of the summer.

Lenglet will move to the Catalan club on July 1 after Barca pay his €35m release clause.

According to AS, the defender has told his close-knit team about the move that could see him become a big part of Ernesto Valverde‘s defence next season.

He is expected to sign a five-year contract as Barcelona seek to strengthen their backline, with speculation over the future of Yerry Mina.

However, the 23-year old will be competing for a place in the starting line-up alongside Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti.

Napoli have lined up Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa as a replacement for outgoing star Pepe Reina, according to Italian newspaper Il Mattino.

New Partenopei boss Carlo Ancelotti has apparently contacted the 32-year-old Standard Liege shot-stopper’s representatives about the possibility of a move.

Ochoa, who famously kept a clean sheet for the Mexicans during Sunday’s shock Group F victory over defending World Cup champions Germany, now has a string of admirers chasing his signature, including West Ham.

But Napoli are thought to be the frontrunners to clinch a deal for the experienced goalkeeper and view him as a ready-made replacement for Reina.

The former Liverpool man is set to join AC Milan on a free transfer this summer after his contract expires at the Stadio San Paolo at the end of June.
