West Ham: Irons set sights on Jakub Kiwior

West Ham: Irons set sights on Jakub Kiwior -West Ham News

West Ham United have set their sights on summer transfer target and Poland international Jakub Kiwior, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Moyes under pressure…

Irons head coach David Moyes is under a fair bit of pressure following a lacklustre start to the Premier League season despite significant financial backing.

West Ham spent £157m in the summer transfer window, including a club-record deal to sign Brazil sensation Lucas Paqueta, yet they find themselves a lowly 16th in the top flight standings.

Moyes’ side have also won just four games out of their opening 15 in the league, a record which will undoubtedly concern GSB heading into 2023.

The Latest: West Ham set sights on Kiwior…

The January market could provide a remedy to West Ham’s ills and potentially strengthen Moyes’ options mid-season.

According to La Nazione, 2022 World Cup ace Kiwior – who plays for Spezia at club level – is ‘in the sights’ of ‘big clubs’, a list which includes West Ham, Milan, Napoli, Roma and Juventus.

It’s added that the east Londoners made a bid for the defender last summer which was rejected, and if they are to return again, he could cost as much as €30m (£26m).

The Verdict: Right target?

If West Ham want to shore up their backline, the very promising 22-year-old could a solid candidate.

Despite his young age, Kiwior is a mainstay for Spezia, having started every Serie A game for them before the World Cup break.

The same applies for the ongoing tournament in Qatar, with the youngster playing the full 90 minutes in both of Poland’s group games so far, in which they have yet to concede a goal.

He appears to be a crucial player for club and country, as evident by his defensive statistics, with the starlet averaging more interceptions per 90 than any of his Spezia team-mates.

It’s hard not to think that signing Kiwior could make West Ham a more solid outfit, in turn helping to guide them away from relegation waters.
