Report: West Ham now English favourites to sign “beautiful” £22m ace who Newman wanted last year

The Irons are believed to be real contenders.

In comparison to Phil Foden, West Ham United is reportedly “above all” interested in signing a £22 million player.

Steidten’s success at West Ham

At the London Stadium, Tim Steidten, the new technical director, seems to be gaining traction. In fact, the German transfer coordinator was heavily involved in the acquisitions of Mohammed Kudus, Edson Alvarez, and James Ward-Prowse in the summer, all of whom have so far shown to be rather successful. With five assists in the Premier League this season, Englishman Ward-Prowse is proving to be a valuable asset for boss David Moyes with his vicious right-footed pass.

Kudus has already begun to demonstrate his undeniable talent at West Ham, while Alvarez has received a ton of praise for some of his performances in Claret and Blue.

Steidten’s identifies new West Ham targets

Now, the focus for Steidten is believed to be on signing a new striker. Moyes is desperately short of quality with

just Michail Antonio, who is his preferred senior choice. This season, Danny Ings has only played 68 minutes of league action, and it appears that West Ham’s manager isn’t the biggest fan of the player.

This has given rise to rumors that the east London team is looking to add a new striker. One candidate for West Ham is Adam Hlozek of Bayer Leverkusen, whom Steidten is familiar with from his time there.

West Ham plans to sign a new right-back in January as well, given the uncertainty surrounding Coufal’s future in east London. In the meantime, an Italian report now implies that Irons fans might need to keep a close eye on the potential arrival of a midfield player.

West Ham “above all” English sides for Zielinski

In the race for Napoli star Piotr Zielinski, West Ham is reportedly “above all” interested English sides. This information comes from Spazio Napoli. Rudi Garcia relies heavily on the 29-year-old, but he has an expiring contract at the end of the season, which has led to speculation that his price might be as low as £22 million.

Zielinski is happy to stay in Italy, but the winners of Serie A need to persuade the player to sign new terms in order to keep him out of the hands of Saudi teams, Inter Milan, Juventus, and West Ham. Despite their desire to do so, this hasn’t happened yet, and as things stand, the Poland international’s future is still open.

Although Zielinski appears to have a huge offer from Saudi Arabia, he hasn’t committed anywhere yet. To add to the intrigue, a trustworthy club insider named ExWHUemployee previously stated that Rob Newman, West Ham’s head of recruiting, was genuinely eager to sign him in 2022.

The midfield player, a mainstay for Napoli for many seasons, has even drawn comparisons to Phil Foden, a star for Manchester City.

“I was listening to Pep Guardiola recently about Phil Foden. Paulo Sousa, the former manager of Poland, stated, “He said he was a genius, an outstanding talent.”

But in order to reach the pinnacle of the world, he must be able to adjust the game’s pace. Foden is still devoid of it. It’s with Piotr. He is all-observant. He has an impeccable sense of the distance between his opponents and his teammates. His pitch geometry and timing are impeccable. With a single pass, he can adjust the game’s speed. He is an exquisite football player.”
