According to a report from Area Napoli, West Ham remain interested in signing Napoli hitman Arkadiusz Milik in January. And if we do end up signing him, it would be a big blow for Tottenham.

TuttoMercatoWeb claimed that Hammers boss David Moyes wanted to bring the 26-year-old to the London Stadium in the summer.
Football.London claimed that Spurs boss Jose Mourinho wanted to bring Milik to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as well.
West Ham have made a fine start to the 2020/21 Premier League campaign. We do look slightly weak in the centre-forward department, however.
Michail Antonio is currently out injured and Sebastien Haller has failed to deliver since joining the Hammers from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer of 2019.
And Area Napoli claims that West Ham could move to address that particular squad deficiency by trying to sign Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik in January. And this time, Tottenham are not mentioned as a potential destination for the Pole.
According to a report from the Evening Standard, the 54-capped Poland international could be available for around £28 million. And that would represent decent value for the Hammers.
The 26-year-old Napoli hitman has scored 114 goals in 271 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. He would be able to provide strong competition and cover for Antonio and Haller.
At 26, the Poland international still has plenty of years left ahead of him. And for £28 million, he could be a very useful addition for West Ham. Beating Spurs to his signature would be an added bonus for the Hammers too.
Whether the board will be prepared to part with that kind of cash for Milik, however, remains to be seen.
