According to an update by ExWHUemployee, adding to reports from The Sun, West Ham United could sign Hertha Berlin striker Krzysztof Piatek in January if the Poland international is made available for a loan move – with the club insider revealing that GSB ‘would be keen‘ after tracking him over a ‘number of years‘.
Piatek, who has scored four goals whilst assisting one teammate in the Bundesliga this season, starting just seven games, has emerged as a target for the Hammers as they seek to find a replacement for Sebastien Haller who left for Ajax.
Should Piatek become a number one target for West Ham?
GSB could sign Piatek
Now, reliable insider ExWHUemployee has backed up these claims, going on to reveal that GSB could sign him on loan if he is made available and that they ‘would be keen’ on a move.
Even though more inform options are currently ‘preferred’ according to the source, Piatek has emerged as a potential coup if these so-called better alternatives fail to come to fruition.
Transfer Tavern take
Indeed, West Ham could sign him in January among a plethora of other names such as Boulaye Dia and Patson Daka – who are also candidates.
Called ‘extraordinary‘ by former AC Milan teammate Alessio Romagnoli, he could certainly become a noteworthy option for the Hammers.
Valued at £19.35m by Transfermarkt, if the Irons were to take him on loan with the option of a permanent deal, he may well represent a bargain depending on his performances.
