Hammers set for Slavia mission

The Hammers will again send scouts to run the rule over Slavia Prague’s Europa League clash with Rangers next week.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their last-16 clash in the Czech Republic on Thursday.

They will clash again next week in the deciding leg and the Hammers will send a delegation to run the rule over a number of potential targets.

Abdallah Sima is at the top of the list, as is well known, after a remarkable season of goal scoring that has seen him hit the back of the net 19 times in all competitions from the wing.

Slavia’s goalkeeper, Ondrej Kolar, is also come onto the Hammers’ radar.

Lukasz Fabianski has only signed a one-year contract extension and boss David Moyes will be keenly watching the goalkeeper market in the summer as he looks to strengthen his squad.

Striker Jan Kuchta has also been linked and he could become a target if he impresses the scouts!

The stunning success of Vlad Coufal and Tomas Soucek means the Irons are in a remarkably strong close with the club which will greatly aid their negotiating position.

  1. Who got us going with Slavia? We have a feeder club that plays in the Champions League. The arrival of two players has made us possible top four. Incredible.

  2. I don’t think he iz worth the money they are asking , think there are definitely better options for that kind of money out there

  3. I thought Sima looked good yesterday, a physical threat, I think he can play straight through the middle though rather than out wide where he is wasted. Rangers were a joke and got lucky, not sure what was going on with all the goalkeeper flapping around with backpasses but he was out of position so many times and there could have been a couple of own goals from Slavia, defending for the goal they conceded was poor. Hlozek from Sparta Prague looks a better bet than the Kuchta.

  4. I wish i had taken the trouble to watch their game at Leicester,because thats a very good premiership team and therefore would be a good point to judge.They won and the fact that that Tomas highly recommends a few players,i think its worth a punt with a few more.

  5. Great relationship to have they are top club In their country & Recruit well too. I like there President he is very open & I would be in for making something official. That said there is talent at other clubs in Fortuna Liga like their rivals Sparta Ladislav Krejci 21 has been very good this season tall left footed CDM with eye for goal 5 in 15, I miss a left footed mid & Hancko left footed CB 21 & 17yo Karabec. Michal Sadilek 21 at Slovan Liberec on loan from PSV also left footed very skilful smaller CM. And one I’ve liked for a while supposed he hasn’t got in Czech Senior squad is Viktoria Plzen’s Pavel Bucha is B2B CM good engine passing set pieces goals from range think 6 goals 5 assists in 25 from at 22yo. It’s a league that has kind of goes under the radar but has a lot to talent. And me personally I’d much rather get a £5m player who not many know off & does well then a big money signing & hopefully we can keep doing that & Moyes is given the scouting tools he needs/wants.
