West Ham United are in the market searching for a new striker after completing Sébastien Haller’s sale to Ajax earlier this month.

Three days ago, Italian journalist and Napoli expert Ciro Venerato reported there is a chance Arkadiusz Milik could go to West Ham in the winter market.

The striker’s contract at Napoli expires in the summer and he’s been left out of Gennaro Gattuso’s plans for this season.

Onet Sport claims the Poland international’s contract situation means he’s most likely to leave the Naples clubs in January.

The Polish outlet also discusses the Hammers wanting to take the 26-year-old and states David Moyes’ side ‘intend to increase the offer’ after they saw their £6m proposal for the frontman turned down by Napoli.

It’s claimed the negotiations between the two clubs ‘should accelerate’ as West Ham are looking for a replacement for Haller.

A potential transfer is only possible if West Ham ‘offer more’ and it remains to be seen whether they will submit an improved proposal for Milik.
