Andriy Yarmolenko will most likely be sold by West Ham in January if an offer comes in for his services.
That’s according to club insider ExWHUemployee.
After an incredibly underwhelming three year spell with West Ham following his £17 million move from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 (The Sun), it would be no surprise to see David Moyes move the 31-year-old Hammers man on in January or next summer.
Yarmolenko’s time at the London Stadium has been blighted by injuries.
He quite simply hasn’t looked the same since returning from a crucial ligament injury a couple of years ago.
Getting Yarmo’s £115k-a-week wages off the books will surely be a priority for West Ham and David Moyes in January.
And it seems as though that’s exactly what could happen.
Insider names the West Ham player who will likely be sold in January
Yarmolenko could be on his way out of the London Stadium soon.
ExWHUemployee told the The West Ham Way podcast:
“There’s a few other contracts that are up. Yarmolenko is one, I don’t think we’ll renew that. In terms of player departures in January. I mean, I think if an offer came in for Yarmolenko, you could probably expect that to happen.”
Yarmo is clearly a very talented player. He was described as a ‘sensational talent’ by ESPN back in 2016, but he just hasn’t produced the goods on a consistent enough basis for West Ham.
Moyes clearly likes to deploy more physically robust and pacy players in the attacking positions.
Unfortunately, things just haven’t worked out for Yarmolenko at West Ham.
And the sooner that he is moved on the better for everyone concerned.
The problem for the Hammers, however, will be getting a fee for Yarmo considering the fact that he’s on such enormous wages.
Perhaps an exit as free agent in the summer will be the most likely scenario for the Ukraine International.
