West Ham are struggling to get a decent loan deal from Torino for attacking midfield flop Nikola Vlasic.
The Hammers had inquries from Turkish outfits ready to offer his full wages but we understand that the £27 million player rejected all overtures from the country.
And that has left the Irons with just the Torino option on their table with the Italian outfit making it clear they are unready to pay the full personal terms.
Despite showing more encouraging form in pre-season – as was the case with now departed Issa Diop towards the end of last term – manager David Moyes sees no future for the player at the club.
The 24 yea old Croatian now looks certain to be involved with the Serie A club this season unless a better offer emerges over the next few days.
He has managed just one Premier League goal in 19 Premier League appearances with most of those being as a substitute.
