Hammers flop now among best in the league

Nikola Vlasic appears to be absolutely tearing it up during his time with Torino in Serie A.

The Croatia international came to the Hammers for £28m from CSKA Moscow but continually struggled to make any sort of impact at the club.

In total, he played 31 times for the Hammers but he only scored one goal, and laid on just two assists.

He was subsequently shipped out on loan to Italy in the summer and a new report in the country claims that he is one of the best players, statistically, in the division.

Vlasic has scored three goals in 11 games in Serie A and Tuttosport reports that he is among the best in the division when it comes to shots on goal and key passes, while no other player at the club runs as far as he does.

Torino are planning to turn his loan into a permanent deal soon enough, and that could even happen in January.

  1. Flop is not the way I see it. He did not perform but a huge part of the problem was that he was always played out if position. He is a 10 but never once did Moyes play him there, he used his tactical ignorance to play his nearly everytime in a wide position He is yet another example of a player with great technical ability being missed managed by Moyes which ultimately mean we will make a significant loss on him. There is no point in spending huge money on talented technical players because Moyes will not manage them correctly.

  2. If he’s still doing THAT well come January WH should hold out for more than less than half of what was paid for him.
