Vlašić Is Fourth Major Departure

West Ham United signed Nikola Vlašić before the start of the 2021/22 season but following the recent departures of both Declan Rice and Gianluca Scamacca, the club have now confirmed that the striker has left to join Italian Serie A club Torino.

Vlašić had initially made the move to Italy on a season-long loan in June 2022 but, there was an option to make the switch permanent.

The Croatian international joined the Hammers in the 2021/22 season but was unable to cement a regular place in the team, only making thirty one appearances and scoring a solitary goal in a 4-1 victory over Watford in December 2021.

There is likely to be more news coming out of East London before David Moyes and his team travel to The Vitality Stadium on Saturday. As soon as any news is available, it will of course appear here.
