Nikola Vlasic is allegedly prepared to take a pay cut in order to join Torino on a permanent basis from West Ham United.
That’s according to a report from Tuttosport who claim that the 24-year-old is ready to sign on the dotted line with Torino on a deal that would see him earn less than he does at the London Stadium.
Torino are allegedly ready to offer Vlasic a contract that runs until the summer of 2027 after his fine start to life at the club and will pay around £13 million to secure his services (Tuttosport).
The Croatia International has been in scintillating form for Torino since joining them on loan in the summer transfer window, bagging three goals in six games (Transfermarkt).
It appears as though the playmaker is very keen to leave West Ham on a permanent basis…
Nikola Vlasic prepared to make a big sacrifice to leave West Ham permanently
According to a report from Tuttosport, Vlasic is prepared to take a wage-cut in order to push through his permanent move to Torino from the Hammers.
He currently earns around £70k-a-week (Spotrac).
We can’t help but be impressed by that for Vlasic.
In fairness, the 24-year-old just wasn’t suited to the intense nature of Premier League football.
Having said that, Moyes never played him in his correct position just in behind the striker, and instead deployed him out on the wings for the majority of his West Ham career.
It’s a shame that Moyes didn’t get the best out of the former CSKA Moscow ace but it is what it is. We still believe that he would have struggled in the Premier League, regardless what position he played.
And it now seems as though Nikola Vlasic will not be a West Ham player beyond the January transfer window.
