West Ham: Journalist slams ‘ridiculously poor’ Vlasic business

West Ham: Journalist slams ‘ridiculously poor’ Vlasic business -West Ham Transfer Rumours

Journalist Ryan Taylor of The Daily Express has heavily criticised West Ham United after a big exit development involving midfielder Nikola Vlasic.

The Lowdown: Hammers reach Vlasic agreement…

The east Londoners have agreed a deal to loan out the Croatia international to Serie A after a season of little opportunity under manager David Moyes.

Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?

Vlasic started just six Premier League games last season, playing just 555 minutes in total, with Moyes now green-lighting his departure.

Torino will take Vlasic on a temporary basis and it is believed the deal includes a roughly £15 million option to buy the attacker.

The Latest: Taylor slams ‘ridiculously poor’ Vlasic business…

Taking to social media, Taylor has slammed West Ham’s decision to let Vlasic go with Torino having the option to sign him permanently for half of what the east Londoners paid a year ago.

He explained (via Twitter):

“This is ridiculously poor business from West Ham. Vlašić deserves a fair crack, makes zero sense to offload without a replacement – particularly for 50% of total outlay paid just one year ago.”

The Verdict: Correct?

Given Vlasic can really turn it on at his very best, as evidenced by his impressive numbers in the Russian top flight prior to joining West Ham, this could be seen as a hasty decision given the lack of replacement.

Links currently surround the likes of Conor Gallagher as the Irons reportedly chase an attacking midfielder but allowing Vlasic to leave the London Stadium before officially bringing in a like-for-like heir through the door is certainly unwise, and could even lead to GSB once again paying over the odds with selling teams knowing they’re desperate.
