The agent of Nikola Vlasic has spoken out and confirmed that his client does not want to return to West Ham United.

Not too long ago, it was claimed that Vlasic could make a surprise return to East London.

However, it seems like there was not much truth to those claims.

It was recently suggested that Torino are desperate to sign Vlasic from West Ham permanently, and they have an option to buy him for just £13 million (Torino Granata).

The Hammers signed the Croatian international from CSKA Moscow in the summer of 2021 for a total of £34.5 million, including add-ons, (BBC).

David Moyes never got the best out of Vlasic though, and never played him in his correct position. So it’s no surprise that he doesn’t want to return to the London Stadium

Nikola Vlasic agent speaks out about West Ham

The Croatian’s agent Tonci Martic has been speaking to RB News about his client’s future.

And Martic responded when asked whether Vlasic sees his future with Torino or West Ham:

“Will Torino buy Vlasic from West Ham? I don’t know yet. They still have time to resolve this issue. I can only say that Nikola is happy at Torino, and wants to stay at this club.”

So it’s clearly down to whether or not Torino are prepared to cough up the £13 million needed to sign Nikola Vlasic permanently from West Ham.

I can’t help but feel that moving him on was a big mistake from Moyes. The Scot never utilised him correctly, and his poor performances for the Hammers were a result of being played completely out of position.

He has bagged four goals and four assists in 25 games for the Turin club (Transfermarkt), and he has been a real hit in Turin. I still feel like he would have so much to offer the Hammers.

However, it seems like Nikola Vlasic will not be returning to West Ham at the end of the season. And that’s a real shame.
