Vlasic hopes rise

Nikola Vlasic could be set to land the Hammers a windfall!

The Croatia international moved on loan to Torino in the summer, and the Italian club have an option to buy him for €15m, which equates to £13m.

That deal came about after Vlasic flopped during his first season with the Irons, playing a bit-part role, and failing to convince boss David Moyes.

But since his move to Serie A, the playmaker has been in remarkable form.

In his five appearances for the club, Vlasic has scored three goals, netting against Cremonese, Atalanta and Lecce.

Torino are currently sixth in Serie A, with only one defeat to their name, and reports in Italy now claim that the club are hoping to buy Vlasic permanently either in January or at the end of the season.

Given just how poor he was with the Hammers, one has to hope that his form continues, and he ends up signing full terms with Torino.

  1. Would keep him as Lanzini replacement for next year, who must surely be in the final year of his contract? If not, it’ll be our last opportunity to get some degree of money for him.

  2. Funny what happens when you play a player in there correct position

  3. It just proves that if you play Vlasic in his correct position he is a good player. Unfortunately Moyes never did that.

  4. Your last sentence should read, given how poorly he was used by Moyse it’s no surprise to see him flourishing in his favoured position with run of games.
    Seems to me he’s hungry and has a point to prove. Surely the irony of that isn’t lost on you Dave.
