It’s no secret that West Ham are interested in Milik. But who isn’t?
According to the football transfer rumours in British and Italian media, West Ham are hoping to sign Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.
The 26-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Milik has been at Napoli since 2016 when he joined from Ajax. The 26-year-old’s contract at Napoli is set to expire at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Poland. The Napoli striker has also represented the Poland at various youth levels before going on to secure 56 senior caps for his country thus far.
The striker has just 6 months remaining on his contract and Napoli will consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.
David Moyes wants to sign a new striker and Milik is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The report claims that West Ham manager has extensively scouted Arkadiusz Milik and is considering a move for the striker.
The Hammers are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Poland international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.
There is no doubt that Milik will take West Ham’s attack to a different level. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “West Ham boss David Moyes is in the market for a new striker. Corriere Dello Sport says Michail Antonio’s injury problems and Sebastien Haller’s unreliability mean Moyes is in the market for a new striker. Polish international Arkadiusz Milik is the man Moyes wants to bring to East London, with West Ham leading the race to sign Milik amid interest from Tottenham. The report states the Hammers hold the edge over Spurs in the race for Milik, as he would have to be backup to Harry Kane were he to move to North London. Milik has bagged 38 goals in 93 Serie A games for Napoli.. Milik’s contract at Napoli expires in the summer, meaning he could be available in January for the cut-price fee of just £9million.”
