Andriy Yarmolenko faces an uncertain future at West Ham United with his contract set to expire in the summer of 2022.

So could tonight’s clash against Dinamo Zagreb be a last chance saloon for Yarmo to prove his worth to David Moyes?

The 31-year-old clearly won’t be playing much in the Premier League this season. Jarrod Bowen, Nikola Vlasic, Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma are all ahead of him in the attacking midfield pecking order at the London Stadium.

The Ukraine international joined West Ham from Borussia Dortmund for around £18 million in the summer of 2018 (Football Insider).

He has failed to make the impact that was expected of him, however. Yarmo has bagged just 10 goals and six assists in 58 games for the Hammers (Transfermarkt).

Andriy Yarmolenko uncertain West Ham future could be decided tonight

The Hammers take on Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League tonight and David Moyes may well rotate his starting XI.


West Ham face Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday. So at least three or four changes will be in the pipeline for tonight.

Many of our new signings will likely start the game against the Croatians but an old head could be in line for a start as well.

Yarmolenko has played just 11 minutes for the senior side so far this season. And if Moyes thinks that Jarrod Bowen needs a rest, the Ukrainian could well be given a run-out. If he is given a chance, it’s time for him to produce the goods.

We all know that Yarmo has the talent. It’s just a case of whether he still has the physical capabilities to make a difference for West Ham at the very highest level.

Today could very well be judgement day for Yarmolenko. If he is given a chance and flourishes he may well be able to salvage his career at the London Stadium.

On the flip-side, if Yarmolenko is left out of the starting XI tonight, it will tell us all we need to know about Moyes’s opinion of the 31-year-old.
