Premier League outfit West Ham United have made a bid of £6.3 million for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, according to Calcio Napoli.
The striker will see his contract expire during the summer of 2021 and the Serie A club could sell him this month.
Juventus had previously been interested, whilst Ligue 1 outfit Marseille remain in the hunt for the talisman.
West Ham offloaded Sebastien Haller last week to Ajax and are now in the market for a replacement.
The 56-cap Poland international hasn’t played a single game during the 2020/21 campaign.
Last season he scored 14 goals in 35 appearances, taking his total since arriving at Napoli to 48.
Carlo Ancelotti has managed the uncompromising player before and Everton were linked with a move in the summer (Talk Sport).
With Dominic Calvert-Lewin now injured, it remains to be seen whether the Toffees could re-enter the race.
Milik would represent a like-for-like option in terms of replacing Haller and West Ham will need to do something.
The departure of the Ivory Coast international leaves Michail Antonio as the only senior option in attack.
Milik earns £80,000-a-week at Napoli and his goalscoring exploits in Serie A could make him an attractive signing.

Milik is a natural-born goalscorer and it’s positive that West Ham are even making offers for such players.
Although he might be available for free in the summer, the Hammers would be wise to pounce now whilst they have a bit of cash in their pocket.
David Moyes has overseen some positive results this season and with the signing of Milik, he could take then even higher.
West Ham supporters have grown disgruntled with some of t he club’s transfers over the years.
It’s fair to say, there wouldn’t be too many complaints if someone with the star quality of Milik checked in at the London Stadium.
