Milan forward M’Baye Niang has emerged as a target for West Ham, according to a report by Tuttosport (via tuttomercatoweb). The Italian newspaper says that the Hammers are anticipating the departure of winger Sofiane Feghouli this month, and are looking at potential options who could play in wide areas.
Sky Sports have reported West Ham have submitted a new £5million bid for Hull City’s Robert Snodgrass but the Evening Standard claim that the Tigers will resist any offers for the 29 year old. Niang could be seen as a potential alternative, with the additional benefit he can also play as a central striker.
This season the 22 year old has played exclusively on the left wing for the Rossoneri under manager Vincenzo Montella. The Frenchman has started 13 league matches, scoring three goals, but it is believed that the the Serie A side would be reluctant to allow the promising attacker to leave in this transfer window.
