Report: West Ham can sign 'unstoppable' Nikola Milenkovic for bargain £12m fee

West Ham United allegedly can sign long-term David Moyes target Nikola Milenkovic for a bargain fee this summer.

That’s according to a report from Firenze Viola who claim that Fiorentina could sell the 24-year-old centre-back for just £12 million in the summer transfer window.

West Ham manager David Moyes has chased Milenkovic since last summer.

A move to sign the Fiorentina ace eventually broke down though and the Hammers signed Kurt Zouma from Chelsea instead.

We believe that with Nayef Aguerd out injured after undergoing ankle surgery though, West Ham should have another crack at signing the 24-year-old. He could be available for a knock-down price this summer…

West Ham could sign Nikola Milenkovic for bargain fee

Firenze Viola reckon that Fiorentina want just £12 million for Milenkovic this summer, with only 11 months remaining on his current contract with the club.

What are West Ham waiting for!?

The Serb is a top-class centre-back and will be a great addition for whichever club wins the race to sign him this summer.

He was magnificent for La Viola last season. Described as an ‘extraordinary defender’ by x-sport news, Milenkovic is a truly elite centre-back.

Meanwhile, back in 2018, ESPN described the Fiorentina star as ‘unstoppable’.

In 34 Serie A appearances for Fiorentina last term, the 24-year-old averaged 1.6 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 2.7 clearances per match. He also won an average of 2.9 aerial duels per game (Who Scored).

Milenkovic is very comfortable with the ball at his feet as well. During his 34 league outings last season, he made 60.3 passes on average per game and recorded an incredibly impressive completion rate of 90.4% (Who Scored).

The Serbian has absolutely everything needed to succeed in the Premier League.

£12 million for Nikola Milenkovic would be an unbelievable bargain for West Ham this summer.

And in my opinion, Moyes cannot afford to miss out on the Serb with Nayef Aguerd due to be out injured for at least another six week or so.
