West Ham United remain hopeful that deals could be completed for Swansea duo Lukasz Fabianski and Alfie Mawson as talks continue between the two clubs, as reported by Sky Sports News.
Mawson, 24-years-old, has been linked with the Hammers since January and it seems new boss Manuel Pellegrini is also keen on the defender.
The two Swans would be Pellegrini’s second and third signings for the Hammers boss as he is inches away from completing a deal for Serie A star Felipe Anderson for a reported €30m.
It is understood West Ham have already made bids for the pair which were rejected, but the clubs are now moving closer to an agreement.
A deal for Fabianski may not be completed until after the World Cup as the Polish stopper is gearing up for his country’s first game against Senegal on Tuesday.
Mawson and Fabianski were ever-presents at the Liberty Stadium during the Swans relegation campaign, being two of the ten players in the Premier league to play every minute of the season.
Pellegrini will be keen to strengthen his defensive options this season, as the Hammers conceded the joint most goals in the Premier League last season, which was 68.
Centre-back Alfie Mawson was rewarded with his fine form last season under new boss Carlos Carvalhal, as he got called-up to the senior England team under Gareth Southgate but didn’t manage to make an appearance.
