Report: West Ham are interested in Serie A striker

According to reliable West Ham source Claret and Hughthe Hammers could be set to move for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik this month.

The Irons are looking for a new striker after Sebastien Haller was sold to Ajax last week.

Although Milik is registered as a Napoli player, he was deemed surplus to requirements at the start of the season and was not included in their 2020-21 Serie A squad.

Naturally, the club will be looking to get rid of the striker this month to free up their budget to bring in new players. 

Milik has a decent record for Napoli. He has scored 38 Serie A goals for the club in 93 appearances since he arrived from Ajax in 2016.

The 26-year-old is well-rounded, left-footed forward. One of his biggest qualities is his ability to play as a second striker or a winger. Throughout his career, he has been lauded for his aerial ability, which is a quality that the Hammers will be keen on adding to their team. 

When in form, he has drawn comparisons to fellow Poland international Robert Lewandowski.

A Poland international since 2012, Milik has represented Poland since 2012 and has scored 15 goals in 56 appearances. 

The striker will need to play more games to earn his place in the Poland side for the European Championships at the end of the season.
