According to iSport, West Ham boss David Moyes has had a £4.8m bid rejected for Slavia Prague midfielder Lukas Masopust, with the Czech side holding out for 240 million Czech Republic Koruna (£8.2 million).

The Hammers manager will surely be looking to bolster his right and left wing options this summer.

ExWHUemployee has recently claimed that Andriy Yarmolenko, Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini could all be sold this summer.

If two or all three of those names are moved on, Moyes will obviously have to bolster his options in the wide attacking department.

And iSport claims that the Scot is after Slavia Prague ace Lukas Masopust.

 

Stats

The 27-year-old winger racked up seven goals and five assists in 37 games for Slavia Prague this season (Transfermarkt).

Masopust’s performances played a key role in his team picking up yet another Czech league title.

The 27-year-old is obviously a very good player, but he has no experience of playing Premier League football. So spending £8.2 million on his services may seem a little risky for West Ham.

If the success of his former teammate Tomas Soucek at the London Stadium is anything to go by, however, then the Hammers should not hesitate to sign Masopust.

Whether the West Ham board will back Moyes in his pursuit of the 11-capped Czech Republic international, however, remains to be seen.
