According to a report from Calico Napoli 24, West Ham United have submitted an offer for Napoli hitman Arkadiusz Milik. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
West Ham’s need for a new centre-forward has now reached the desperation stage.
With Sebastien Haller gone, we have just one recognised senior striker at the London Stadium in the form of Michail Antonio.
That in itself is a massive worry considering the 30-year-old’s hamstring issues.
David Moyes cannot afford to wait around any longer. The Scot quite simply has to sign at least one established striker before the transfer window slams shut.
Calico Napoli 24 claims that West Ham are already making moves. The Italian media outlet suggest that the Hammers have submitted a €7 million (£6.3 million) bid for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik.
The 26-year-old is out of contract with Napoli in the summer. So the Serie A outfit will surely be tempted to sell Milik for that kind of fee rather than risk losing him for nothing in six months time.
The 56-capped Poland international has scored 114 goals in 271 career club appearances (Transfermarkt).
He hasn’t played for Napoli this season, however. So that is obviously a huge concern.
