David Moyes allegedly could have second bite of the cherry at £9m striker who rejected West Ham

West Ham United could be presented with another chance to sign long-term David Moyes striker target Arkadiusz Milik.

That’s according to a report from RMC Sport who claims that the 28-year-old hitman could be available for transfer in the summer.

Milik ended up joining Marseille on loan, however. The French club have an obligation to buy him for around £9 million at the end of this season (Transfermarkt).

It seems as though they may have to exercise that obligation and then sell him on though…

David Moyes may be able to bring former striker target to West Ham

According to RMC Sport, Milik is not the flavour of the month with current Marseille boss Jorge Sampaoli.

And as a result, he could be shipped out of the Stade Velodrome in the summer.

West Ham submitted an official offer for the 28-year-old last year when he was at Napoli but the striker rejected the chance to move to the London Stadium (Onet).

The Hammers may well go back in for him now though, especially given our desperate need for a new centre-forward to recode competition for Michail Antonio.

Milik has actually been in fine form for Marseille this season. He has bagged 16 goals in 27 games in all competitions so far (Transfermarkt).

He is a tall, target-man type striker. So he would provide West Ham with an entirely different option through the middle.

Whether Moyes will see Milik as an upgrade on his current options, however, remains to be seen.

In truth, there are a lot better options out there. And if Milik was our summer striker signing it would be fairly underwhelming.
