​West Ham fall short of CSKA Moscow demands for Vlasic

West Ham United have failed with a first bid for CSKA Moscow playmaker Nikola Vlasic.

According to Eurostavka, a Russian news outlet, West Ham made a bid of roughly €23 million.

However, the offer was turned down, as it is short of the close to €30 million that CSKA are seeking.

Vlasic is seen as West Ham's alternative to Jesse Lingard, who they have given up on signing from Manchester United.

While they may end up paying a similar fee for Vlasic, as United want for Lingard, the Croatian is only 23 years old and would have a higher re-sale value.
