Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that the Russian club have made an offer to sign Sasa Lukic from Torino.

Given the fact that Lukic plays in a similar position to Kral, if Spartak Moscow sign the Torino ace this summer the door will surely be wide open for West Ham to swoop in for the Czech Republic international.

Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the talented 23-year-old to the London Stadium this summer according to (Sky Sports and The Express).

Kral would be a truly exceptional addition for West Ham.

It was worrying when ExWHUemployee claimed the other day that the East London outfit’s interest in Kral had cooled.

West Ham move to sign Alex Kral back on?

Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that Spartak Moscow have lodged a bid for Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic.

If the Russian club do end up signing the Torino star, it will be a clear opening for the Hammers to bring Kral to East London.

The Czech Republic international began his career as a defender but he has evolved into a midfielder. He is apt at playing the holding role but he can perform central midfield box-to-box duties with aplomb as well.

In 29 league outings for Spartak Moscow this season, the Czech Republic international has registered five assists and has averaged 1.5 tackles, 1.8 interceptions, 0.8 clearances and 0.8 dribbles per game. During those appearances, he has made 56 passes per match on average with a completion rate of 81% (Who Scored).

West Ham quite simply need to get a deal for Kral done asap. And we think that Gianluca Di Marzio’s claim about Spartak Moscow chasing Sasa Lukic stands us in very good stead.
