West Ham to pay Nikola Vlasic £70k-per-week contract

West Ham United are set to pay CSKA Moscow attacker Nikola Vlasic £70,000-per-week to complete his signature.

ExWHUemployee has shared the latest update on his personal terms as the Croatian edges closer to the London Stadium.

The Hammers are set to spend £25.7million plus add-ons for Vlasic, who could be announced as early as tomorrow.

After Kurt Zouma finally was confirmed, it appears as though the Irons have moved quickly to secure another signing in a problem area.

Writing on Patreon, Ex shared the major update to the story after insisting that Vlasic will complete his medical on Monday.

“Update 4: Vlasic will be on approximately £70k a week,” he wrote.

GSB pull it out of the bag.

After months of looking as though nothing could happen this summer, it has all changed in the space of days.

Getting the big-money deal for Zouma over the line was a big statement, and the fact they haven’t stopped there is credit to them.

Vlasic is out to prove himself in the Premier League after flopping at Everton, but after shining at Russia, he is more prepared this time around.

This is big money to splash out on a player that could be classed as unproven, but that gives him the perfect motivation.

Time to get this one over the line as soon as possible, with everything looking as though it is nearly signed, sealed and delivered.
