Celta Vigo forward Nolito has revealed he has a buyout clause in his contract amid reports that West Ham are mulling over an approach.
The Sunday People claimed yesterday that Slaven Bilic was pondering a €10m bid for the Spain international, who is currently in France at Euro 2016. And the 29-year-old has certainly not rebuffed talk a move away from La Liga after saying that interested clubs “know what to do”.
“I remain relaxed and am only thinking about the European Championship finals,” Nolito told Spanish daily Sport.
“I don’t usually read what is said about me so I can then concentrate on other things, yet I neither dislike or like reports of a move to Barcelona.
“That said, I’m happy at Celta and have a three-year contract which contains a buy-out clause.
“Whichever club is interested in me, they know what to do. Even so, I’m really enjoying my time here.”
Nolito, who scored 12 goals in 26 La Liga games last season from a left-sided role, only has one year left on his contract with the Galicia-based outfit and Barcelona, Liverpool and Arsenal have all been linked with his services.
The player has admitted talks with Celta over a new deal have hit a stumbling block recently and the Cadiz-born player is now believed to be high up Bilic’s list of targets as he looks to add some depth to his squad for next season.
