Nikola Vlasic praises Michail Antonio

The 31-year-old has been on fire for West Ham since football resumed after the first lockdown.

And he has been the stand-out player in the Premier League during the first three games of the season with four goals and three assists to his name already.

 

Vlasic spoke to the club’s official website and suggested that Antonio is one of the best three strikers in England’s top flight:

“Michail is a beast and what he’s done over the last year and a half is amazing. I think he’s probably in the top three strikers in the Premier League.”

The prospect of Vlasic linking up with Antonio is certainly a tantalising one for the West Ham fans.

Here’s a glimpse of what the Hammers new-boy has to offer:

Exciting times ahead indeed for the West Ham fans.
