West Ham could sign Jakub Kiwior in January, and Robert Lewandowski absolutely raved about his international teammate yesterday.

READ…Supposedly positive Aguerd injury claim by West Ham insider its actually very bad news

Reports emerged from Italy yesterday that the Hammers are still well in the race to sign the 22-year-old Spezia defender in January (Calciomercato).

That came after it was claimed that AC Milan were all set to sign Kiwior for around £16 million.

Now it seems as though West Ham could still sign the central defender though.

David Moyes may well be on the hunt for another centre-back in January, with Angelo Ogbonna now 34 and Craig Dawson facing an uncertain future at the London Stadium…

West Ham could sign Jakub Kiwior in January

Calciomercato reckon that the Hammers are well in the race to sign the Spezia centre-back in January.

The four-capped international would be a sensational addition for West Ham in my opinion.

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 could sign a player who world superstar Robert Lewandowski rates very highly indeed.

The Barcelona striker spoke to Citta della Spezia about how good Kiwior is:

Oh Lord, listen to me: this is a real player! I noticed this during the warm-up before the game against the Netherlands (a 2-0 defeat last week). I asked: ‘But who is he’? Then I saw him in the game. Extraordinary. Really great potential.

Lewandowski’s comments mean that Moyes should be going all out to bring Kiwior to the London Stadium in January.

If West Ham could sign the 22-year-old centre-back, we’d be in great shape in the centre-back department for years to come.
