West Ham United, Rapid Vienna’s Europa League opponent, makes the perfect next move.

A few days after Kurt Zouma turned into the Hammers, Londoners cemented themselves with Croatian Nikola Vlasic. The 23-year-old is moving from CSKA Moscow to the British capital for a rumored €29 million. There the attacking player signs a five-year contract.

Vlasic was one of the absolute best players of his time with Muscovites. In 108 official matches, the Croatian, who was considered one of the best players in the Russian league, scored 33 goals and made 21 assists. At the European Championship, Vlasic was used in every match of the Croatian national team. In the last group game against Scotland, the 23-year-old scored the runner-up’s opening goal.

West Ham United are also said to be looking into the campaign for the return of Jesse Lingard. The Englishman, who was loaned to the Hammers from Manchester United at the end of January last season, scored nine goals in 16 matches. This season, the 28-year-old has played just four minutes against Southampton for the Red Devils in three Premier League matches.
