The Hammers have had great success previously when signing players from the Czech champions.

Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal have both been hugely successful since swapping Prague for East London.

And perhaps another Czech import could be on his way to the London Stadium.

West Ham chasing Lukas Masopust

90 Min reckons that Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to sign the 28-year-old winger.

 

The 26-capped Czech Republic international is allegedly available for just £6 million this summer.

Masopust racked up two goals and seven assists in 45 games for Slavia last season (Transfermarkt). Those aren’t great numbers for a winger.

He does put in a real defensive shift, however. And we all know how much emphasis Moyes places on that particular part of the game.

£6 million does seem like a real bargain for a proven international. Much will depend on what Soucek and Coufal have to say to Moyes about their fellow countryman.

We could certainly do a lot worse than Lukas Masopust, that’s for sure.
