No club in for unwanted ace

By Dave Langton

West Ham have brushed off speculation linking Nikola Vlasic with a move to Italy.

The Hammers flop has been linked with a potential move to Torino, and a new report on Friday suggested the Serie A side were confident of getting a deal over the line.

However, sources at the club have denied that there has been real movement surrounding the Croatia international’s future.

David Moyes is not a huge fan of the player, who arrived for a fee in excess of £26m last summer, and he has struggled immensely to make an impact in the first-team.

The 24-year-old scored once last season and only made six Premier League starts.

The Irons would happily cash in on Vlasic if a good enough offer was tabled, but Torino have yet to formalise their interest in the Croatia international.

It remains to be seen if a bid will actually be tabled for Vlasic, who looks to be falling down the pecking order in east London.

  1. It would help massively if moyes played him in his preferred position. Why does moyes think he can change every player he gets?

    • He doesn’t get played that often does he?
      And out of position.
      He is 24 so lots of time to improve .
      Saying that I saw him in a few European games and he wasn’t that impressive last season where he could of stood out .
      Moyes would prefer to completely fatigue players than rotation as seen last season, if the player isn’t putting in 100% and impressing he won’t get a start .
      How can u get match fit if u play 20mins every so often and spend most of your time on the bench.
      Put him out on loan .
      Someone will have him and he can gey a bit of confidence back .
