Football talent scout highlights West Ham United target Jakub Kiwior's sublime stats in UEFA Nations League

Football talent scout Jack Kulig has dropped some sensational stats of West Ham United target Jakub Kiwior from the Poles games in the Uefa Nations League.

Now, the Hammers must make a move for the talented defender, after Calciomercato reported yesterday that they were “one step away” from signing him in the summer.

Kiwior is also high on the list of Serie A giants AC Milan, but the Italians have yet to make an official move for the defender, leaving the door open for West Ham.

The football scout took to his Twitter page and announced to his 217k followers, that the defender was the “present and future” of Polish football.

He highlighted some of the savvy stats Kiwior has helped himself to during this season’s Uefa Nations League.

in four games the defender has managed 32 passes per 90 minutes, has an 82% passing accuracy and has won 2.3 tackles per 90 minutes.

Alongside this, the monstrous centre-back has had 2.8 interceptions per 90 minutes, four clearances per 90 minutes and won 64% of his duels.

“Real player”

West Ham United should go for this one and try to sign the Poland international, or at least attempt to once the transfer window reopens in January.

Craig Dawson is looking likely to leave the club and this leaves the door open for another defender to join David Moyes’ ranks at the London Stadium.

Kiwior fits the bill perfectly for the kind of centre-back who could thrive in the tough Premier League; he’s big, comfortable with the ball at his feet and versatile.

He stands at a menacing 6ft2′, a perfect height for West Ham’s notorious set piece plays; he can add another dimension to this.

Described by Robert Lewandowski as a “real player“, the Hammers could do far worse than the Pole; his ceiling and potential are extremely high.

Moyes will face a tough challenge against some of Europe’s best for his signature but he’s worth a punt, especially after coming agonisingly close to signing him in the summer.
