West Ham target Jordan Larsson will leave Spartak Moscow in January

Reported West Ham target Jordan Larsson will leave Spartak Moscow in January, according to a report from Afton Bladet.

They claim that the 24-year-old won’t be extending his contract with the Russian club, and that will force his current side to sell him in January, putting a number of clubs on high alert.

The Irons were linked with a move for Larsson earlier this year by his agent, and you would think this news could trigger a transfer race for his signature [Afton Bladet].

Larsson to leave for under £10million.

The forward scored 15 goals and provided five assists last season in just 29 league games for Spartak.

However, due to his contract situation, the Dutch-born Sweden international will be allowed to depart the club for £8.5million, which could interest the Hammers.

David Moyes’ side are after a new striker, given that Michail Antonio is their only fit first-team forward.

So could Larsson be the perfect foil?

Well, he is still young and is quite small, so he could provide a totally different option to what the Irons currently already have.

So, if you combine the fee and his age, then we would argue that Larsson could be a strong signing for the Irons if they act quickly and beat all those other clubs to his signature.

He also has international experience, so there are a lot of positives going in Larsson’s favour, and this would be a move that could suit the Irons, so we will have to see what happens.
