Many West Ham United supporters have been showing their love for summer signing Nikola Vlasic after a club post on Twitter.
Vlasic, 23, made the move to West Ham towards the end of the transfer window from Russian side CSKA Moscow after two years with the club.
Following a successful international duty with Croatia, where he scored in the 3-0 win over Slovenia, Vlasic made his Hammers debut in the weekend’s 0-0 draw at Southampton, playing 27 minutes and competing 100 per cent of his pass attempts.
The Hammers take on Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday evening in their Europa League group stage opener and fans seem to suspect Vlasic could start his first game for the club
He may well get more playing time at the weekend too with Michail Antonio suspended after his red card, handing the attacking midfielder a chance to show his new employers what he is made of this week.

“Start him, be a tough game”
“Made a good first impression! Start him next game”
