Smolov seeking West Ham move


Filed: Thursday, 29th March 2018

Sources in Russia say that Fyodor Smolov wants to secure a move to West Ham before the World Cup commences this June.

The 28-year-old striker, who currently features for Krasnodar and has been repeatedly linked with a move to east London this season is reported to have told associates that he wants to complete his on/off move as soon as possible.

However much will depend on the Hammers being willing to meet his asking price, said to be in the region of £12-£15million.

West Ham were first linked with a move for the Russian captain, who already speaks fluent English, a matter of days after David Moyes was installed as the club's latest manager last November.

Smolov is said to be particularly keen to move to London despite having also been linked with clubs such as Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen in recent months.
