Matty Cash claims West Ham summer target Zielinski is 'unbelievable'

Matty Cash has told The Ben Foster Podcast that West Ham summer target that Piotr Zielinski is one of the best three players he has played with, alongside Jack Grealish and Robert Lewandowski – and ahead of Philippe Coutinho.

Zielinski haș made an electric start to the season with Napoli, helping the club top the Serie A table. He has scored three goals and provided four assists in all competitions so far. He has already scored twice in the Champions League.

Of course, his form may be difficult viewing for West Ham fans. Sky Sports reported in the summer that the Hammers were in talks over a possible deal for the Poland international.

In fairness, West Ham made a huge statement late in the window. They broke their transfer record on Lucas Paqueta. But signing Zielinski would have been an amazing piece of business.

Cash has experience of playing alongside the 28-year-old on the international stage. And he made a huge claim about his ability as he picked him alongside Lewandowski and Grealish.

“We’ve got a few very good players. There’s a boy, Zielinkski, plays for Napoli. Honestly, he’s in my top three best I’ve played with. Unbelievable,” he told The Ben Foster Podcast.

To place Zielinski ahead of Coutinho is quite something. And some West Ham fans may already be ruing the fact that they did not manage to sign him in the summer.

The Hammers should be fine this season. They have too much quality to remain near the bottom of the table.

But of course, Zielinski would have been a huge addition as well.
