Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to sign another right-back before the transfer window closes.

Ryan Fredericks began the season in fine fashion. But he now faces around a month on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury against Wolves on Sunday night.

And young talents Ben Johnson and Harrison Ashby are probably not quite ready to play regular Premier League football just yet.

Sky Sports reckon West Ham are wasting no time in addressing that particular issue. They suggest that the Hammers have already opened talks to sign Slavia Prague right-back Vladimir Coufal.

 

Stats

The 28-year-old scored three goals in 27 league games for Slavia Prague last season (Transfermarkt).

Coufal played a major role for his team last season. And the fact that they conceded just eight goals in the 27 games he played says a lot about the industrious right-back.

The seven-capped Czech Republic international is a very reliable defender. He also likes to get forward and join in with attacks.

It is Coufal’s dream to join West Ham, according to i Sport. So we should have a great chance of signing him.

The Independent claims that the 28-year-old could be picked up for just £4 million as well. And that would be a real bargain in this day and age.
