Nikola Vlasic to undergo West Ham United medical on Monday

CSKA Moscow attacker Nikola Vlasic is set to complete his West Ham United medical on Monday, according to ExWHUemployee.

The Croatian international is set to join for £25.7million, plus £6.9million in add-ons as David Moyes strengthens in the final third.

The Hammers have held a serious interest in Vlasic over the summer, and look to have finally got their man before Tuesday’s deadline.

Writing on his Patreon on Sunday afternoon, Ex shared the major update as the Irons close in on another major signing this month.

“The club are in serious talks with a player and hope to conclude the medical tomorrow this will be a permanent move,” he wrote.

“Nikola Vlasic, as covered before is someone we have a serious interest in and I believe the player to be him.”

Moving quickly.

This would be smart business by GSB, and unlike them, it looks to have been concluded very quickly.

Kurt Zouma’s move was finally announced this weekend after numerous weeks of issues, and that looks to have been avoided this time around.

With the deadline approaching quickly, should the medical be completed tomorrow, it could also be announced.

Vlasic has told CSKA he wants the move to be done, so they shouldn’t stand in his way as he completes the switch and adds to our electric attack.
