West Ham United have now made an ‘important’ bid to sign Spezia defender Jakub Kiwior this summer, according to Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
The Lowdown: Irons eye new signings…
Irons boss David Moyes isn’t resting on his laurels ahead of the September 1 deadline with reliable reports claiming the Scotsman has his eye on even more West Ham signings.
Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?
Europa League place
Having sealed deals for Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes, Alphonse Areola, Gianluca Scamacca and Maxwel Cornet, a defensive crisis has prompted the Premier League side to take to the market once again.
Indeed, talks have apparently been held over Fenerbache star Attila Szalai while discussions are ongoing over a move for Paris-Saint Germain defender Thilo Kehrer (The Daily Express).
The Latest: West Ham make significant Kiwior bid…
Now, as per Sky Sports reporter Di Marzio, the Hammers have made an ‘important’ bid to sign Poland international ace Kiwior from Serie A side Spezia.
The 22-year-old, also wanted by European giants AC Milan, seems intent on rejecting West Ham’s offer as things stand with his eyes set on regular football ahead of the World Cup.
The Verdict: Hope for a U-turn…
Di Marzio claims that Kiwior’s stance is ‘at least for the moment’, meaning something could potentially change depending on developments.
The Pole’s obvious quality will certainly have West Ham hoping for a U-turn on his alleged stance.
Kiwior even finished 21/22 as one of Spezia’s most solid defenders and made more tackles per 90 than any of his teammates domestically (WhoScored).
Out of their entire squad, the starlet also ranked in as their fourth-best performer by average match rating over last season, with it being clear he is certainly one to watch.
