West Ham United want Piotr Zielinski but deals for both he and Napoli teammate Fabian Ruiz are proving difficult.

The Hammers are desperate for another midfield addition even after signing Flynn Downes from Swansea City.

Mark Noble has retired, Alex Kral’s disappointing loan spell is over and there have been question marks raised about Tomas Soucek’s future.

West Ham have gone in with big offers for Lille anchor man Amadou Onana but the French side have been stalling on that deal.

West Ham may now need to look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements, but two more targets look tricky to land.

West Ham United want Piotr Zielinski

Corriere dello Sport now claim that West Ham did make a move to sign Napoli playmaker Fabian Ruiz.

Hailed as ‘extraordinary’ by the Italian press, Ruiz has been a key man ever since joining from Real Betis in 2018.

The left-footed midfielder is silky and smooth on the ball whilst possessing the ability to score some beauties from long range.

The problem for West Ham is that Ruiz has allegedly rejected the move to West Ham and won’t be heading to East London.

West Ham then turned to Napoli teammate and fellow midfielder Piotr Zielinski.

The Hammers only offered €20million (£17million) for Zielinski whereas Napoli are seeking €40million (£34million).

That’s a huge gap to be bridged but talks are continuing between the two clubs to try and thrash out a deal.

Zielinski, 28, haș been a star in Italy for 10 years now having featured for Udinese and Empoli before joining Napoli in 2016.

With almost 300 appearances for Napoli and 72 caps for Poland, Zielinski has plenty of experience.

A quality midfielder on the ball and energetic off it, Zielinski would represent a coup for West Ham this summer.

Yet with their bid just half of the asking price so far, West Ham have a lot of work to do on this deal.
