Tuttosport: West Ham’s €12m bid for Spezia star rushes Milan into action

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still looking for a centre-back to help complete their defence ahead of the upcoming campaign an Jakub Kiwior of Spezia is a target.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reports that the Rossoneri have been following Kiwior for some time, but they were hoping to make a concrete move either in the January window or even next summer.

The competition from some Premier League clubs such as West Ham United – who have already offered €12m – risks changing the plans of Milan who could be forced to accelerate things or they might well miss out.

The 22-year-old is held in high regard by the management and they do not want to let him escape, but they must also understand the intentions of Spezia who are pondering whether to sell Kiwior now or to wait until after the World Cup when his value may be higher.

The young defender made his debut this summer for the Poland national team and could well be a starter in Qatar, where he could show off further.
