West Ham believed to have made offer for Napoli’s Milik

West Ham United are understood to have submitted an offer for Napoli hitman, Arkadiusz Milik.

West Ham believed to have made offer for Napoli’s Milik

Milik frozen out by Napoli

Arkadiusz Milik joined Napoli in the summer of 2016, moving from Dutch powerhouse Ajax for around €32m.

And the Polish international has since gone on to enjoy a fairly successful stint with the Naples-based club.

In 122 outings across all competitions, Milik has scored 48 goals and provided five assists – a respectable record.

Last season, meanwhile, the 26-year-old notched 14 goals in 35 outings.

Despite his solid production, however, Milik has since been frozen out by Napoli. The striker was not registered in either the club’s Serie A or Europa League squad for this season, and is yet to play a competitive fixture in 2020/21.

West Ham make offer for Milik

As such, with the winter window now upon us, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to see the Napoli forward linked with a number of other clubs.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton were credited with an interest in the Pole last month.

Now, though, another Premier League outfit have taken centre stage in the Milik chatter.

The club in question? West Ham United.

According to Goal, citing Domenica Sportiva, West Ham have tabled a €7 million offer for Milik’s services.

Should the Hammers manage to land Milik for a fee even close to €7m, it would represent something of a bargain.

Granted, the hitman will need to build up his fitness, having not made a single competitive appearance for Napoli this season.

However, Milik has proven himself as more than a capable goalscorer over the course of his time in Serie A.

West Ham are of course short up top at present, after selling Sebastien Haller to Ajax for €22.5m just last week:
