West Ham United have put a €20-25m asking price on midfielder Nikola Vlasic amid interest from Torino.
That’s according to Calciomercato, who say the Hammers’ asking price has made a deal for the Croatian complicated.
Vlasic arrived at the London Stadium from CSKA Moscow last summer but struggled to establish himself under David Moyes in his first full campaign.
He’s been linked with an exit this summer, and Torino, managed by fellow Croatian Ivan Juric, are believed to be at the front of the queue for his signature.
CM back that up, stating Vlasic is the ‘big dream’ signing this summer as they know the player is ‘looking around’ at possible moves for himself.
However, negotiations with West Ham have proven to be ‘complicated’ because of the ‘high cost’ the Hammers have put on the deal.
According to their information, West Ham will not let Vlasic leave for less than €20-25m after paying €30m to sign him last year.
That’s a figure Torino would struggle to get anywhere close to, with previous reports of their interest making it clear that money was an issue for the Italian side.
It’s hard to see them wanting or being able to match those demands West Ham have put in place, then, with a move for Vlasic unlikely at this point as a result.
