West Ham United star Tomas Soucek has been linked with a move away in the summer.
Soucek has been one of the best signings in the modern history of West Ham.
David Moyes says West Ham would not have stayed up without Soucek last season and fans agree.
West Ham’s gentle giant is making waves
And the midfielder has gone from strength-to-strength this campaign, topping the club’s scoring charts with eight goals so far from central midfield at the halfway stage of the season.
Soucek has become one of the most talked about and well-liked players in the Premier League.
The West Ham favourite responded to the Bayern talk in December telling CT Sport it was nice to hear.

“I’m at peace in West Ham and I’m enjoying the time here,” Soucek told CT Sport.
“But it’s definitely nice to read or hear [these rumours], it gives me strength for matches and I’m happy for that. I’m not dealing with such offers yet.”
Any player would be flattered by links to such prestigious clubs.
The use of the word ‘yet’ would undoubtedly worry West Ham fans.
Insiders deny Soucek reports, insist any bid would have to ‘blow the doors off the London Stadium’
“He’s contracted to the Irons until 2024 and is clearly loving life in east London, where he is playing alongside one of his best mates in Vlad Coufal!” Claret & Hugh report.
“He’s also one of the star men, one of the first names on the team sheet, and is rewarding David Moyes for his trust in him.
“We can assure you now that, no matter what you read, there are absolutely no plans to move Soucek on at this stage, and any bids would have to blow the doors off the London Stadium for them to even be considered.”
That will reassure Hammers fans who are hoping Soucek can lead them into Europe, where he excelled previously for Slavia Prague.
