Report: West Ham winger Andriy Yarmolenko offered to Besiktas

West Ham United winger Andriy Yarmolenko has reportedly been offered to Turkish giants Besiktas.

According to Fotospor, the £17.5 million Ukraine international (Sky Sports) could be set to join the Super Lig side this month, with agents attempting to facilitate a move.

The report says the thought of reuniting with Domagoj Vida appeals to Yarmolenko – the pair were teammates together at Dynamo Kiev.

A deal could be difficult though, with Besiktas supposedly in a precarious financial position.

And the club’s vice-president has said that a move for the 30-year-old isn’t a priority, so any move to Turkey for Yarmolenko perhaps seems unlikely at this stage.


Yarmolenko has made 16 appearances so far this term, but is now back on the treatment table.

TBR’s view – West Ham shouldn’t sell

It is somewhat strange that West Ham are apparently ready to move Yarmolenko on.

He has obviously had his injury problems, but on his day he is capable of changing games for the Irons.

As a left-footed right-winger he brings something different to the Hammers frontline, and can be good support for Sebastien Haller.

Maybe new manager David Moyes just isn’t convinced, but West Ham ought to keep Yarmolenko and then revisit the situation in the summer.

Have something to tell us about this article?
