West Ham remain in talks to sign Nikola Milenkovic, Nat Phillips also on their radar

West Ham United are reportedly in talks with Fiorentina to sign Nikola Milenkovic.

According to Daily Mail, the defender is valued at £14 million and has just a year left on his current deal with the Italian outfit.

The Serbian is a ‘top target’ for David Moyes, but the Hammers are also keeping tabs on Nathaniel Phillips and Duje Caleta-Car.

Milenkovic has been impressive for Fiorentina and could prove a quality long term acquisition for the Hammers.

West Ham need to strengthen their defensive options if they want to do well in the Europa League this season.

The 23-year-old has shown his qualities in Serie A, and the chance to move to the Premier League could be an exciting proposition.

The Hammers will be able to offer him regular game time at a high level, and he would also have the opportunity to play European football.

However, Juventus are keen on signing the Serbian defender, and they can offer him the chance to play in the Champions League.

Having made Milenkovic their main defensive target, West Ham will be keen to fend off Juve and secure his services over the coming days.
