One of West Ham United’s attackers is a transfer target for Turkish club Trabzonspor in January according to a report from Fanatik.
Hammers boss David Moyes is expected to try and bring two or three new signings to the London Stadium in January.
There may well be some outgoings as well.
Moyes has plenty of deadwood at West Ham that he really does need to shift.
And it seems as though the Scot may well be in luck.
West Ham attacker reportedly a transfer target for foreign club in January
According to a report from Turkish media outlet Fanatik, Trabzonspor are targeting a January move to sign Hammers man Andriy Yarmolenko.
The 32-year-old is being eyed up by the Super Lig side as a replacement for Gervinho who has ruptured his cruciate ligaments.
The report states that because Yarmo’s deal is set to expire in six month’s time, the fee paid to West Ham would be a nominal one.
That’s fine though.
Getting his huge £115k-a-week wages off the books will be the priority for Moyes and the club.
In fact, getting any kind of fee whatsoever for the Ukrainian would be a big bonus for West Ham.
Yarmolenko is obviously a very talented footballer. In all honesty though, he’s just not suited to the robust and intense nature of Premier League football.
Injuries haven’t helped either in fairness to him. But there is no room for sentiment in the Premier League.
And exit from West Ham in January will be the ideal solution for the player, and both the selling and buying clubs.
If Yarmo does end up leaving the London Stadium, we will wish him all the best for his future.
