Alex Kral has lookalike at Sparta Prague in the form of Filip Soucek and a Czech diplomat hints at a potential move to West Ham in the future.
Filip Soucek plays for Sparta Prague.
Czech diplomat and West Ham fan Libor Sečka took to Twitter last night to highlight his resemblance to on-loan Hammer Alex Kral and hinted that the young midfielder could be on Davids Moyes’s radar at some point in the future:
‘Nothing to do with West Ham…at least up to now’
That’s very interesting. Whether Sečka knows something that we don’t is unclear. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens in the future.
He really is a dead ringer for Kral. And the fact that he’s surname is Soucek surely means that he’s a dead cert to be signed for West Ham!
The 21-year-old has bagged two goals and three assists in 32 games for Sparta Prague (Transfermarkt).
He is a central midfielder by trade, but can also operate in the deep-lying midfield role.
Soucek is a hard working, energetic midfielder and he is a very good passer of the football.
West Ham boss David Moyes is fairly well covered in central midfield at the moment with Declan Rice, Filip’s namesake Tomas Soucek, his lookalike Alex Kral and Conor Coventry (who is currently out on loan).
If the Scot does bring in any more central midfielders next summer, it will probably mean that one of his current players will be moved on from the London Stadium.
Let’s not even think about that though. Hopefully Moyes keeps all of his players together at West Ham over the course of the next few years.

And if he adds an exciting young player like Filip Soucek to his ranks in addition to what he’s already got, then that can only be a good thing.

The 21-year-old will certainly be a player for the West Ham fans to keep an eye on this season.
