According to Fotospor, West Ham United attacker Andriy Yarmolenko, via his agents, has been offered to Turkish giants Besiktas.
The 30-year-old joined West Ham from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2018 and has managed five goals and two assists in 25 appearances for the Hammers.
Granted, the attacker’s record is not exactly fantastic, but he has scored three Premier League goals during the current campaign, which is far from disastrous.

And a number of the London club’s fans cannot understand why their club would be prepared to lose the Ukraine international during the January transfer window.
Offering players out when nothing is coming in ? Be lucky soon if we have a starting 11

Don’t understand when he was fit he was deadly.. play him just behind Haller & push Anderson back on the left. Worth a shot can’t do no worse ⚒

Like we can afford to lose any more players ….this club is so laughable it’s beyond embarrassing

Can someone please explain to me why the club are pursuing this? I thought we had a serious lack of depth in the squad.

Not everyone is of the same opinion, though, and there are some West Ham fans who would seemingly be open to the idea of the attacker leaving during the current window.
Maybe to free up squad places for new players?

I’d happily let him go ,his few decent games are massively out weighed by his lazy majority of games

Makes sense – one is fit and doing bits and the other ……isn’t !!

Call yourself a West Ham expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?
Yarmolenko is actually currently on the sidelines with an abductor problem and has missed his team’s last four Premier League matches.
Indeed, not since the clash with Southampton on December 14 has the Ukrainian turned out for his English club, whilst he was also left out of the home game against Arsenal on December 9.
It will be very interesting to see whether he is in the plans of new manager David Moyes, who has picked up one victory and one defeat from his two Premier League games in his second spell as head coach at the London Stadium.
Meanwhile, a number of West Ham fans were left shocked by a recent quote from their new boss, who replaced Manuel Pellegrini at the helm.
