Now that Bywater has departed West Ham are being linked with a number of goalkeepers.
The Sunday Express claim that West Ham are after Matteo Sereni. The former Ipswich Town keeper is available from Lazio and Alan Pardew is set to offer £1 million to land the Italian, the paper claims.
West Ham Fans link West Ham with a year's loan with Jerzy Dudeck who is becoming frustrated with his lack of first team opportunities. The site also claim that Bywater's initial two week loan before signing for good is to allow West Ham to recall the keeper if Pardew is unable to bring in a new keeper.
