According to a report by Turkish news outlet Fotomac, via Sport Witness, Galatasaray could open ‘official’ talks to sign West Ham United forward Andriy Yarmolenko once their new president is elected.
The Lowdown: Yarmo out of favour…
The Ukraine international barely featured for West Ham over 2020/2021 due to a combination of injury issues and other players being ahead in the pecking order.
Indeed, Yarmolenko started just one Premier League game all season under manager David Moyes and played out the vast majority of his appearances as a substitute.
The 31-year-old bagged three goals in six appearances across both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup competitions last year but that was the summary of his contribution.
The Latest: Galatasary come calling…
Fotomac, via Sport Witness, now bring the latest on Yarmolenko and his future in the English capital.
The forward is now attracting heavy interest from Turkish Super League giants Galatasary who plan to be ‘aggressive’ in the transfer market this summer.
It is reported that they could even open official talks to sign Yarmolenko once some club issues are resolved, such as the election of a new president and the future of their current manager.
The Verdict: Time to go…
The Hammers may need to adopt a sell-to-buy policy like many clubs up and down England due to the coronavirus pandemic and we can’t think of anyone better for the chopping block.
