According to a report by Calciomercato Web, the future of West Ham United forward Andriy Yarmolenko is ‘already decided’ as a major contract claim emerges.
The Lowdown: Yarmo and the Hammers…
The Ukraine international has been dazzling at Euro 2020, but the same certainly cannot be said at club level for West Ham.
Now, Calciomercato Web claim to have some answers.
The Latest: Future at West Ham ‘already decided’
As per the outlet, Yarmolenko’s future as a West Ham player is ‘already decided’.
Indeed, they explain that the 31-year-old has now firmly decided not to renew his contract at the London Stadium but it’s not clear whether he will seek an exit this summer or leave as a free agent at the end of next season.
His great tournament at the Euros so far, however, could attract suitors this window and present the player with an ‘opportunity to be seized’.
The Verdict: Time is up…
Given his brilliant few games for Ukraine, Yarmolenko’s market value could indeed soar and make it easier for West Ham to recuperate a sizeable fee for him this summer.
We believe that’s exactly what West Ham should do, especially if Moyes wants three positions filled in a permanent deal for Jesse Lingard, new striker and a centre-back (Claret & Hugh).
West Ham are set for a busy 2021/2022 campaign after their Europa League qualification and the club arguably need a small overhaul in key areas of the pitch, shifting out players like Yarmolenko to make room for new additions.
