West Ham United reportedly now have a brilliant chance to sign Udinese star Lazar Samardzic.

According to Corriere dello Sport (print edition August 14th, page 16), Lazar Samardzic was all set to join Inter Milan in the summer transfer window but the move has now stalled, leaving the door open for West Ham in the process.

With Samardzic’s move to Inter ‘slowly collapsing’, Hammers boss David Moyes can now swoop in for the supremely talented 21-year-old.

The East London outfit have already been linked with a move to sign the Serbia international as a potential replacement for Lucas Paqueta, should the Brazilian leave the London Stadium this summer.

And now West Ham cannot hesitate to swoop in for the Udinese star…

Door wide open for West Ham to sign stunning midfielder Lazar Samardzic after transfer collapse

Samardzic’s move to Inter Milan has now collapsed and Corriere dello Sport reckon that the Hammers could swoop in and sign the super talented Serbian.

Moyes has to be all over this one, the Udinese starlet is a truly special player.

The 21-year-old is a central midfielder by trade but he can operate in the number 10 position as well.

The Udinese ace really does have so many strings to his bow. He is technically brilliant and has the physical attributes needed to succeed in the Premier League as well.

At youth level, Samardzic bagged 55 goals and 23 assists in 57 games. Since moving into the senior ranks at Udinese, he has seven goals and seven assists to his name in 63 outings (Transfermarkt).

Sempre Inter reckon that the Serie A side want around €30 million (£26 million) for the midfielder. That sounds like very good value indeed for me.

And if West Ham sign Lazar Samardzic in the summer transfer window, I think he’ll end up being a superb player for us.
