West Ham are now prepared to sell Nikola Vlasic for less than the purchase option that Torino agreed upon.

According to a report from Toro News, West Ham have dropped their asking price for Nikola Vlasic from €15 million (£13.2 million) down to €13 million (£11 million), although Torino are still struggling to meet those demands.

However, Vlasic failed to make much of an impact at West Ham – mostly because David Moyes refused to play him in his correct position just in behind the main striker.

The 49-capped Croatia international has enjoyed a fine campaign with Torino this season, with four goals and four assists in 28 games to his name (Transfermarkt).

And it seems as though the Hammers are doing everything they can to facilitate a permanent move to Torino for Vlasic…

West Ham lower Nikola Vlasic demands

Toro News claim that the Hammers could now sell the 25-year-old for just £11 million this summer – a massive £15 million loss on the fee that we paid for him just under two years ago.

Vlasic is a really intelligent, technically gifted player who needs to operate in the number 10 position, or as a number 8 at the very least.

However, the Croatian’s lack of pace means that he is rendered as completely useless when deployed out on the left wing.

And that’s why the former CSKA Moscow ace failed to make any kind of impact at the London Stadium.

I strongly feel that David Moyes is the man to blame for Nikola Vlasic’s struggles at West Ham.

It’s such a shame that the Croatian was never really given the chance to flourish at the London Stadium.
