'On my knees', 'Yes please': Some West Ham fans pray owners sign 'bargain' 23-year-old target

West Ham target Nikola Milenkovic is reportedly available this summer for just €10m (£8.5m).

According to Italian sports journalist Paolo Bargiggia, the 23-year-old centre-back can leave for cheap in the transfer window. As reported by CalcioMercato, West Ham, as well as Everton and Tottenham, are keen on Milenkovic.

The Serbian international had a fine season for Fiorentina last term. The centre-back made 34 appearances in Serie A. Milenkovic has been compared to Manchester United legend Nemanja Vidic during his career.

West Ham are likely to sign a centre-back this summer with UEFA Europa League football on the horizon next season. The Hammers will be competing in the group stages, so building out the squad will be key for David Moyes.

Indeed, Milenkovic would be a solid addition for the Hammers for next season. And supporters on social media are eager for the club to sign the 23-year-old defender. Especially since his transfer fee has seemingly dropped significantly.

Here’s what some West Ham fans had to say about Milenkovic on Twitter, with a few supporters hoping the club owners beat rival teams to the defender’s signature…

West Ham conceded more goals last season than the likes of Tottenham and Aston Villa, and competing in Europe means extra defenders will be needed for Moyes and his east London side.
