Krzysztof Piatek has been in fine form for Genoa this season and has already scored 13 goals in the league, while he has six goals to his name in two Coppa Italia appearances.

The striker’s impressive displays have helped him debut for Poland in September and he’s attracted interest from other clubs.

According to journalist Alfredo Pedulla, West Ham United are planning to secure his services in the winter market.

For this, the Hammers made an offer of €35m that reached the offices of the Serie A club on Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Premier League outfit, Genoa turned down the proposal made by Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

It is explained that Piatek is currently earning €500,000 a year with his current employer and AC Milan are ready to offer him wages four times more than what he is currently paid.

The report mentions the Italian side’s chairman Enrico Preziosi is demanding a fee of €40m plus €5m-6m in bonus payments to part ways with Piatek.

It should be seen whether West Ham will submit an improved offer the player and how they’d deal with competition from Milan for Piatek’s signature.
