West Ham United edge ahead of Newcastle United in January transfer race for in-demand striker
West Ham United have reportedly edged in front of Newcastle United in the race to sign Poland international Krzysztof Piatek.
According to Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, David Moyes is in the driving seat to sign the AC Milan frontman with the Serie A outfit preferring to cash in on the player, rather than send him out on loan.
United enquired about the player earlier this window but wanted a loan with option to buy. Aston Villa and Barcelona have also been linked with Piatek.
