The saga of West Ham United winger Andriy Yarmolenko has been a curious and incredibly intriguing one, but it could soon be coming to an end.
The Ukraine international started off this season in blistering form, having returned from a debilitating injury towards the back end of his debut campaign in east London.
In recent months, though, niggling injuries and a loss of form has seen his momentum stall in a big way.
And now it appears that new Hammers boss David Moyes is ready to drop the axe on the Borussia Dortmund man’s London Stadium tenure.
Reliable Irons insider ExWHUemployee claimed on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday night that the club are considering offers for the 30-year-old.
That’s down to his wages, which are thought to be rather large, and the fact that he doesn’t fit into Moyes’ system.
I forgot to mention him on the podcast annoyingly but yes we are considering offers for him because of his wages and not really fitting in Moyes system https://t.co/yNPKwrk8qp

Would it be harsh to offload Yarmolenko this month?
That’s a difficult question to answer, and the best bet is probably yes and no. Yes in terms of his form this campaign, which has by and large been rather good.
However, it wouldn’t be harsh when you consider his wages and the fact that he’s now 30 years of age and Moyes simply doesn’t seem to fancy him.
In other West Ham news, the club have reportedly turned their attention to a Premier League shot-stopper.
