Alex Kral has agreed personal terms with West Ham United ahead of an anticipated move from Spartak Moscow.
That’s according to a mystery insider who works for Guardian Sport.
Speculation has been intensifying that Czech Republic midfielder Kral could become West Ham’s first big signing of the summer.
West Ham pushing hard to get deal done for third Czech international – reports
West Ham are pushing hard to get a deal concluded for Kral BEFORE this summer’s Euros next month.
That’s according to the Czech star’s agent Karol Kisel – who also represents West Ham hero Vladimir Coufal (Idnes).
Sky Sports backed up Kisel’s claims that West Ham have made contact with him over a potential £14 million move from Spartak Moscow.
The Express has also reported that the 23-year-old wants to move to the London Stadium to play under David Moyes and link up with his countryman Tomas Soucek and Coufal.
Guardian insider claims Kral has agreed personal terms with Hammers
Now mystery Twitter insider The Source – who claims to work for Guardian Sport – says Kral has agreed personal terms with West Ham ahead of a move.
“West Ham have agreed personal terms with Alex Kral,” The Source claimed on Twitter.
The Source reported West Ham had opened talks with the player on Friday.
Since then Kral’s social media activity has suggested a move to the Hammers may well be in the offing, liking several West Ham accounts and posts.

He even liked a comment on a YouTube video which said ‘Welcome to West Ham’.
The YouTube video gave West Ham fans a fascinating insight into a day in the life of Kral.
The midfielder looks to be cut from the same cloth as Soucek and Coufal, showing how dedicated he is with a strict routine of exercise, stretching training and massage.
Whether this insider is right remains to be seen.
If he is then it will be quite a coup for the Hammers as Kral can also operate at centre-back.
