Premier League clubs have made approaches to sign West Ham right-back Vladimir Coufal this summer.

According to a report from TEAMtalk, West Ham defender Vladimir Coufal is on the radar of unnamed Premier League clubs in the summer transfer window.

The 30-year-old West Ham man was linked with an exit from the London Stadium a few months ago, with Premier League clubs and Bayer Leverkusen rumoured to be chasing his signature.

However, since then the Hammers triggered the one-year extension option we held on his contract according to The Athletic (with the option of a further 12 months). Coufal definitely improved during the second half of last season, and he’s definitely the go to man for David Moyes in the right-back position.

In spite of that though, reports are now claiming that he could leave the London Stadium this summer…

West Ham could lose Vladimir Coufal to another Premier League club this summer

TEAMtalk reckon that numerous Premier League clubs could try and take advantage of the the 37-capped Czech Republic international having just one year remaining on his deal with the Hammers, although we do have the option to extend that contract by a further 12 months.

I think that losing Vlad this summer would be a big blow.

Not so much because he’s a brilliant player but more so because we’ve lost enough experience already, with Aaron Cresswell and Michail Antonio being linked with the exit door as well.

The 30-year-old always gives 100 per cent too, and he’s extremely popular at the London Stadium.

Vladimir Coufal is a very solid right-back on his day, and whilst I believe David Moyes needs to make an upgrade on the Czech, I would still like the Scot to keep him at West Ham for at least another year.

Too much change too quickly can be a bad thing sometimes. And because of that I believe Moyes will keep Vlad around this season.
