Fabrizio Romano makes conflicting Nikola Vlasic claim as West Ham future hangs in the balance


Nikola Vlasic will almost certainly join Torino on a permanent deal from West Ham United at the end of the season.

That’s according to highly-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano who claims that Torino are more than happy to pay the £13 million option that they have on the 25-year-old.

Vlasic has bagged four goals and three assists in 15 games for the Italian side so far (Transfermarkt). If he continues to produce those kind of numbers, he will undoubtedly join the Serie side permanently next summer.

And according to one of the most in-the-know football journalists in the game, that’s exactly what will happen…

Nikola Vlasic expected to leave West Ham permanently for Torino

The Croatian will almost certainly be moving to Italy from England on a permanent basis at the end of this season.

Fabrizio Romano took to Twitter to provide an update on the situation:

That really is no surprise to me whatsoever.

David Moyes criminally misused Vlasic during his time at the London Stadium, deploying him out on the left wing.

The Croatian excels when given the free role in behind the striker. It’s such a shame that we never got to see the best of him in East London.

Nikola Vlasic reportedly has no interest in returning to West Ham.

And it seems as though he will be plying his trade in Italy for the foreseeable future.
