“A chance” Serie A striker could move to Hammers this month

West Ham are eyeing a move for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik in the January transfer window, with his agent offering him to the club.

The Irons are, naturally, in the market for a new striker.

We all know that there have been plenty of reports linking the club with a multitude of forwards from across the continent, and Milik has emerged as a potential solution.

He has not been included in Napoli’s league squad and has not played at all this season, though he has a proven track record of scoring goals at the highest level.

The Poland international has scored 48 goals in 122 games for the club and Italian journalist Ciro Venerato has previously claimed that a bid of around €7m (£6.2m) was tabled by the Irons, though it was knocked back by the Serie A outfit.

He now claims that Milik is perhaps most likely to move to France, but that his representative is attempting to take him to West Ham.

Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss, as quoted by Sport Witness, he said: “Milik can go to Olympique Marseille: the French side are a club where the Pole can land.

“Napoli continue to ask for more than 9 million and there’s also a problem with the percentage of resale. There’s also a chance he’ll go to West Ham: a chance offered by the agent.”
