West Ham United: Belief Irons could sell Andriy Yarmolenko for cheap fee

West Ham United: Belief Irons could sell Andriy Yarmolenko for cheap fee -West Ham Transfer Rumours

As per Turkish source Fanatik (via Sport Witness), there is a belief that West Ham could sell another player in Andriy Yarmolenko for a cheap fee – coming after their infamous loss on Felipe Anderson in the summer.

The Lowdown: West Ham sell Anderson for just £4m…

Back in July, West Ham and GSB made an incredible loss on the sale of their former winger to Lazio.

Should West Ham sell Yarmo?

Yes, time to go

No, good squad player

Signed by ex-boss Manuel Pellegrini for £36 million in 2018, the Brazilian’s down turn in form at the latter stage of his West Ham career saw him loaned out to FC Porto where he endured an equally torrid time – making just a handful of appearances for the Primeira Liga giants (WhoScored).

As such, manager David Moyes and the club saw fit to rid themselves of Anderson but winded up doing so for a controversially cheap fee.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

Indeed, the reliably reported £4m they recuperated his services meant West Ham made a loss of around £30m (Evening Standard).

Despite a 50% sell-on clause inserted into the deal, it’s safe to say this business from GSB will win no awards, and now there is belief in Turkey that the Irons could sell another player on the cheap.

The Latest: Yarmolenko price ‘will not be high’…

As per Fanatik, as also shared by Sport Witness, there is belief from the continent and Turkish Super Lig giants Trabzonspor that Yarmolenko’s price ‘will not be high’ as they add him to a list of January targets.

To get the true price, it is claimed that they will launch ‘cost investigations’ into the 32-year-old who has even already been offered to them by his ‘managers’ – presumably meaning representatives.

However, they are not the only club interest, with the report also claiming that West Ham’s man has ‘serious market’ in Europe.

The Verdict: Another loss incoming?

One of the main reasons Trabzonspor believe West Ham will accept a cheap fee for Yarmolenko is down to his contract situation, which is currently set to expire in 2022.

As things stand, he is free to negotiate a pre-contract in January ahead of a possible free agent departure next summer, meaning West Ham could have to sell for a lower fee mid-season rather than lose him for nothing six months later.

It’s also unlikely that Yarmolenko would agree a short-term extension given he reportedly made up his mind on leaving in the last window (calciomercatoweb), so it appears West Ham may be resigned to making another loss.

One silver lining for the Irons may be finally getting the Ukraine international’s sky high £115,000-per-week wages off the books and saving money long term.

As Moyes looks to maintain West Ham’s current run and guide them further into an exciting era, selling Yarmolenko may be a question of when rather than if, even despite club favourite Declan Rice once calling him ‘really special’.
