West Ham United have entered negotiations with Fenerbahce to sanction the sale of Andriy Yarmolenko, Football Insider reports.
The Ukrainian came to Hammers from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 and has since disappointed with just seven goals and three assists from 47 Premier League games.
On the contrary, its shape is really extraordinary for his country. On the way to the European Championship quarter-finals, he recently scored two goals and two assists.
After stepping into the final year of his £ 115,000 weekly contract, the Hammers want to get him off their payroll and suffer a substantial loss.
It was bought from Dortmund for £ 18 million but could be sold for only £ 2 million.
Sports lens view:
The Hammers are in the process of dumping highly paid players. They have already parted ways with Felipe Anderson for £ 4 million including a sale clause.
Yarmolenko, who is the club’s highest earner, appears to see the exit door as he was out of the Premier League last season under David Moyes.
Last season he was limited to a single start to 362 league minutes. Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma, and Jesse Lingard were all preferred over him.
Lingard has returned to Manchester United after his brief loan but there is still optimism the club could sign him on a permanent basis.
The fees and salaries collected from player sales should encourage the pursuit of the club’s main objectives during the ongoing transfer window.
