Hammers may have made defender bid

West Ham may well have made a bid for the central defender Nikola Milenkovic already!

A new report in Italy, from La Nazione, brings some more detail on the future of the Fiorentina centre-back, who is wanted by a number of clubs in this transfer window.

Manchester United and Juventus are both said to hold an interest, along with the Irons.

Milenkovic only has a year left on his contract but, according to the report, Fiorentina aren’t set to offer a huge discount.

They want between €25m and €27m. That’s £21.4m to £23.1m.

The report states that a bid has already been tabled from an English club of €16m (£13.7m) and that is most likely from the Irons, who are certainly in the market for a centre-back this summer.

Still, it remains to be seen if the Irons would be willing to pay over £20m for a player who only has 12 months left on his contract. We’re not so sure.

  1. if thats the bid weve put in compared to their asking fee guess thats the end of that .Scrimping again?

  2. The options may be financially more interesting for West Ham?
    Freebies like Maksimovic, Anderson, or maybe a loan like Tuanzebe?
