West Ham United are said to be interested in singing the Barcelona stopper.
But it is now hard to see the worth in West Ham bringing in another goalkeeper.
West Ham have also already snapped up two shot stoppers this summer, in the form of David Martin and Roberto.
As a result the Hammers look well stocked in goal, and although Cillessen would be an upgrade on Martin and Roberto, he wouldn’t be a necessary signing.
West Ham do not have an unlimited budget, and getting Cillessen would not be cheap.
Therefore the Hammers are far better off focusing their attention on strengthening other areas of their squad and letting another side take Cillessen off Barca’s hands.
