Arkadiusz Milik will cost West Ham or Tottenham £28 million this summer, according to a report from the Evening Standard.

Football.London claimed yesterday that Spurs boss Jose Mourinho wants to bring the 26-year-old to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And Hammers manager David Moyes was linked with a move for the 51-capped Poland international in July (TuttoMercatoWeb).

It seems that neither London club will be able to pay such a hefty fee for Milik, however, considering the financial fallout from the global health crisis.

Both West Ham and Tottenham desperately need a new striker this summer.

Moyes has just Sebastien Haller and Xande Silva to call upon as recognised centre-forwards. Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho is in real need of more adequate competition for Harry Kane.

And Milik would be a decent option for both London clubs.

Stats

The 26-year-old Napoli hitman has scored 114 goals in 270 career club appearances (Transfermarkt).

He scored 11 goals in 26 Serie A outings last season (Who Scored).

Milik is very strong in the air and plays as a target man type striker.

£28 million does seem to be a lot of money for the Polish ace, however, especially considering the current financial climate.

And it is highly unlikely that West Ham or Tottenham will be able to stretch to that kind of fee for Milik.
