Only true Hammers get 10/10 in this ultimate summer transfer quiz...how much did West Ham pay to sign Morgan Amalfitano on deadline day in 2014?

ExWHUemployee also explains that signing a new centre-half is now manager David Moyes’ top priority before reinforcing other positions.

West Ham have already made bids for players this summer according to reports, which include the likes of Sam Johnstone and Matheus Pereira.

Now, Konur has lifted the lid on a new West Ham transfer offer, this time for Milenkovic.

The Latest: Irons make another transfer bid…

As per the Turkish reporter, writing on social media, West Ham have now made a bid for Milenkovic as they look to strengthen Moyes’ options.

The 23-year-old, who started 34 Serie A matches for La Viola over 2020/2021, is the subject of intense personal interest from Moyes who wants to complete a deal for Milenkovic or Zouma.

Indeed, so much so that West Ham have tabled a £14 million offer to sign Milenkovic this summer.

“West Ham have made a £14m bid for Fiorentina for Nikola Milenkovic,” the reporter stated (via Twitter).

“David Moyes wants Kurt Zouma or Nikola Milenkovic’s transfer completed.”

The Verdict: Get it done…

As per reliable sources, like Charlie Eccleshare of the Athletic, prying Milenkovic away from Fiorentina could be a ‘relatively straightforward deal’ for clubs interested (Twitter).

He could even depart the Artemio Franchi Stadium for as little as €15 million (£12.8m), with Irons supporters now facing a wait to see if their proposed bid for Milenkovic will be accepted.

Given his impressive exploits last season, we believe he could be quite the capture.

Milenkovic, standing at a colossal 6 foot 5, averaged more successful aerial duels per 90 over 2020/21 (3) than any West Ham defender (WhoScored) – highlighting his physical presence as a major attribute.

Still at a fairly young age, the centre-back could also come with a big potential sell-on value in years to come.
