A club has used an Eminem song to make an official announcement of a deal with West Ham for Nikola Vlasic.

As reported by Hammers News yesterday, the long running saga between West Ham and Italian side Torino over Nikola Vlasic is finally over.

Last week Vlasic broke his silence on his situation to lambast West Ham for demanding too much money for him from Torino – as reported by Tuttosport.

West Ham signed midfield playmaker Vlasic from CSKA Moscow for around £26m in the 2021 summer window.

But he struggled to impress Hammers boss David Moyes and was shipped out on loan to Torino last season.

The Croatian midfielder fared much better in Serie A under his compatriot Ivan Juric.

Club uses Eminem song to make official announcement of deal with West Ham for Nikola Vlasic

So much so West Ham were hoping to recoup a big chunk of their original outlay with a permanent deal to send Vlasic on his way.

But the Serie A side have driven a hard bargain.

As announced on Hammers News on Monday, West Ham have finally given in to agree a deal with Torino for flop Vlasic at around £10m.

We revealed the deal was agreed at around £8m plus £2m in add-ons. The player had already agreed personal terms on a four-year deal until 2027.

All in, the deal is worth around £3m less than the original option to buy included in Vlasic’s loan – which expired at the start of July.

Torino have taken advantage of the situation West Ham find themselves in with CSKA Moscow over the fees due for Vlasic to drive the price down.
