Tomnas Soucek talked up the possibility of West Ham signing Slavia Prague attacker Abdallah Sima, when speaking to CT Sport.
The Hammers have garnered a great relationship with Slavia over the past 12 months.
David Moyes has brought Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal to the London Stadium. And both players have been huge successes.
Because of that, West Ham will undoubtedly be looking to Slavia Prague again when the transfer window reopens.
Moyes should be on the look out for a new striker in January.
And Tomas Soucek told CT Sport that Slavia Prague forward Abdallah Sima would be a great signing for the Hammers:
“From what I see, I have to say, I’m excited about him. His goals are very much simialr to what I’ve been scoring. I’m glad that such a player was found, but it’s not just about that. He shows one-on-one qualities, finishing, just a typical winger. I have to say that the guys or the media around West Ham know about him. I would only be happy if another player from Slavia came, but it is still far away. He’s still a young player and he has to prove it. But a lot of people know about him and notice him. Only good for him.”
If Soucek is a fan, Sima would undoubtedly be a hit with West Ham.
The 19-year-old is a really exciting talent. He has been on fire for Slavia Prague this season.
Sima has scored 13 goals in 18 games this term (Transfermarkt). The teenager is still very raw and has to work on his technique. His talent and potential is undeniable, however.
Slavia president Jaroslav Tvrdik told i Sport that he has recently rejected a €10 million (£9 million) bid for Sima.
So it is fair to say that West Ham will probably have to pay at least £10 million to bring the 19-year-old to east London.
With Sima’s potential, that kind of fee could end up looking like a real bargain for the Hammers.
