West Ham goalkeeper Adrian could be worth selling in January
West Ham signed goalkeeper Adrian on a free transfer back in 2013 after he left Real Betis and he’s certainly been a brilliant servant for them.
The Spanish shot-stopper has made 148 appearances so far for the Hammers and kept 42 clean sheets, but has become a forgotten man around the club this campaign.
The 31-year-old’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season and he’s lost his starting position in the side to teammate Lukasz Fabianski since manager Manuel Pellegrini arrived in the summer.
With Adrian set to leave on a free next summer as it stands, it could be worth West Ham trying to offload him in January to make some form of profit on him.
He is still in his prime years as a goalkeeper and is a dependable option in-between the sticks, but unfortunately for him he is now up against an inspired Fabianski.
Adrian would surely be an extremely attractive option for any team in the Championship competing for promotion if he became available in the New Year, while he’s definitely still good enough to be a regular in the top flight.
West Ham could promote highly-rated England Under-20 international Nathan Trott to the club’s back-up goalkeeper if Adrian leaves and Fabianski doesn’t look like giving up his position any time soon.
