West Ham will have to pay €9 million (£8 million) for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik according to Calcio Napoli 24 journalist Ciro Venerato, who told Radio Kiss Kiss (quoted via Spazio Napoli), that the Hammers could sign the Poland international.

The East London outfit are searching far and wide for a new striker after Sebastien Haller’s departure.

And it seems as though David Moyes has already made a move to try and bolster his ranks at the London Stadium.

Calico Napoli 24 claimed a couple of days ago that West Ham made a £6.3 million bid for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.

That bid was obviously rejected, however.

West Ham need to up Arkadiusz Milik bid

Calcio Napoli 24 journalist Ciro Venerato has told Radio Kiss Kiss (quoted via Spazio Napoli) that the Hammers could sign the Poland international, but for nothing less than €9 million (£8 million):

“Milik can go to Olympique Marseille: the French side are a club where the Pole can land. Napoli continue to ask for more than 9 million and there’s also a problem with the percentage of resale. There’s also a chance he’ll go to West Ham: a chance offered by the agent.”


West Ham surely can do a lot better than Milik, however. The 56-capped Poland international hasn’t even played a game this season.

The 26-year-old is a decent striker, but he is a target man type forward. If the Hammers sign him he will probably experience similar problems to Sebastien Haller.

David Moyes absolutely must get his next signing spot on. There is no room for error.

And bringing Milik to the club for £8 million would leave West Ham exposed to the possibility of making a very big mistake.
