Report: West Ham are now going to sell 24-year-old David Moyes thinks is 'first class'

West Ham United are going to sell Nikola Vlasic in the summer transfer window after just one season at the club, according to the Daily Mirror.

Vlasic only came to the club last summer, with the report saying he cost David Moyes’ men £28 million to bring to east London.

Moyes called Vlasic ‘first class’ in September, but he has just one Hammers goal to his name so far, in a December win over Watford.

And amid links with Hornets’ striker Emmanuel Dennis, it is now claimed that West Ham are happy to let Vlasic go.

West Ham to sell Vlasic

Their report reads: “Moyes has funds available to spend this summer having kept his powder dry in January.

Of the two biggest signings he made last summer, £28million Kurt Zouma remains a firm fans’ favourite but Nikola Vlasic, who cost the same amount from CSKA Moscow, has been a bitter disappointment and is set to be offloaded.

West Ham want at least one more striker, two central midfielders and depth in the wide areas this summer (and) want £20million Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis.

Plenty was made about West Ham’s lack of attacking depth when their Europa League run ended, and that is also a reason why their league campaign has not been as impressive as Moyes might have hoped.

Vlasic was his big attacking recruit last summer and it is fair to say it has not worked out. That is reflected in this report.

West Ham do need more attacking depth and variety, but they cannot afford to waste the better part of £30 million this summer once again.
