Andriy Yarmolenko could leave West Ham in January agent claims

Andriy Yarmolenko could leave West Ham in January with a lot of clubs interested in acquiring his services according to his agent Vadim Shabliy.

Yarmolenko is out of contract at the London Stadium in the summer.

He has proven this season that he is nowhere near the levels required for the Premier League anymore.

It’s not entirely his fault. The Achilles tendon injury that he suffered in 2018 has obviously played a huge part in his struggles over the past 18 months or so.

Moving Yarmolenko on from West Ham should be one of David Moyes’s main priorities. Getting his £115k-a-week wages off the books in January would be a massive boost, even if we have to let him go for nothing.

Genoa boss Andriy Shevchenko is allegedly interested in signing Yarmo (Sport).

And the 32-year-old’s agent has opened up on the possibility of his client leaving the London Stadium in January, when speaking to Tribuna:

“In the Italian championship, Andrei will be able to stay at his level for three or four years. He has known Shevchenko for a long time, knows his requirements. Why not (make the move)? Of course, many clubs are interested in him. There is nothing from West Ham, they have a contract until the summer. We are waiting for the development of events. There is a lot of interest in him.” 

Considering Yarmolenko’s massive wages it will be nigh-on impossible to get any kind of decent fee for him in January.

That’s fine though. Freeing up £115k-a-week in wages will help David Moyes make a couple of much needed top-class additions.

West Ham need a striker and a left-back at the very least if we are to challenge for the top four this season.

And moving Yarmolenko on will put the West Ham boss in a much stronger position to do just that.
