West Ham could be open to selling Tomas Soucek in the summer transfer window with Juventus eyeing a move for the midfielder.
That’s according to a report from Italian publication Juve Dipendenza who claim that the Hammers will only be prepared to sell the Czech Republic international for a minimum of £40 million though.
That would represent a £25 million profit for West Ham on the £15 million that we paid Slavia Prague for his services in July 2020 (Daily Mail).
The Czech Republic international was brilliant for the Hammers last season with 10 goals in 38 Premier League games to his name (Transfermarkt).
Soucek has been a lot quieter this season, however. He has only bagged six goals (Transfermarkt) and his all-round performances have been nowhere near the levels he showed last term.
The 6ft 4in midfielder is still hugely important to West Ham, especially from set-pieces at both ends of the pitch, and David Moyes is clearly a very big fan of him.
Tomas Soucek is apparently a target for Juventus, so he must have something about him.
There is an argument to be made that the Hammers could sign an upgrade on the 27-year-old this summer though. And it appears as though the East London outfit are at least open to the idea of moving the Czech midfielder on at the end of the season…
Tomas Soucek is allegedly a transfer target for Juventus
Juve Dipendenza reckon that the Italian giants would like to bring the Czech Republic international to Turin at the end of this season.
West Ham are looking for £40 million for Soucek though and the Italians are apparently not prepared to pay that kind of money.
We love the former Slavia Prague ace. He always gives 100% for West Ham as a bare minimum. It must be said though, his ability when in possession of the football is severely lacking and he slows us down massively in the transition from defence to attack.
If any club are willing to pay £40 million for big Tomas in the summer, West Ham should snap their hands off for that kind of money.
And with Juventus apparently keen to sign Tomas Soucek, this could very well be his last season at the London Stadium, if we lower our demands for him of course.
