West Ham have allegedly been told to pay £13 million for Jakub Kiwior after ‘constantly sending scouts’ to watch him.

That’s according to a report from Calciomercato.it who claim that Hammers boss David Moyes is very keen indeed to sign Kiwior in January.

West Ham are thought to face competition from Italian giants AC Milan for the talented 22-year-old’ signature this winter.

Moyes was very keen to bring the Poland international to the London Stadium in the summer.

West Ham allegedly had a £10 million bid for Kiwior rejected by Spezia.

And it seems as though the Hammers are ready to go back in for the Spezia starlet…

West Ham told to pay £13 million for Jakub Kiwor

Calciomercato.it reckon that the Hammers are battling Juventus for the 22-year-old’s signature.

And it will cost West Ham £13 million to prise Kiwior away from Spezia.

We think that the Pole would be tremendous addition for the Hammers. He has been described as Poland’s most sought-after player.

Kiwior is obviously a huge talent, and Robert Lewandowski recently raved about his countryman, labelling him as ‘extraordinary’.

And considering his age, he will be someone who just keeps getting better and better.

He is a left-footed centre-back but can operate as a defensive midfielder as well, and that versatility would obviously appeal to Moyes.

In 22 Serie A appearances last season, Kiwior averaged 2.3 tackles, 1.8 interceptions and 2.2 clearances per game (Who Scored).

The Polish ace stands at 6ft 2in tall and is very energetic and mobile.

The Spezia defender is a proper athlete, but it must be said that he is totally unproven in the Premier League. Players a lot better than Kiwior have arrived in the Premier League and failed to succeed.

However, Kiwior does seem to have all the attributes needed to succeed in England. So I believe that Moyes should sign the Polish ace in January.

West Ham signing Jakub Kiwior for £13 million would be tremendously good value for money.
