The Guardian broke the news two days ago that Hammers boss David Moyes wanted to bring the 23-year-old CSKA Moscow ace to the London Stadium.
And everything then seemed to move very quickly.
The transfer window obviously slams shut tonight. So West Ham need to act fast on this one.
And it seems as though that is exactly what has happened.
Vlasic to West Ham close
That’s according to club insider Ex who claims that the Hammers hope to unveil him soon and the deal is 95% done.
Whatever way you look at it, that sounds like great news.
Vlasic will be a tremendous acquisition, if we do indeed get this one over the line.
He has reached an entirely new level since joining CSKA from Everton on a permanent deal two years ago.
The 23-year-old has been in fine form in Russia scoring 12 and 13 goals respectively in his last two seasons with CSKA (Transfermarkt).
He is technically gifted and has an engine that will undoubtedly prove to be attractive to Moyes.
Vlasic would provide Moyes with a totally different option in the final third and the Croatian would offer the Hammers great strength in depth in the attacking midfield department.
