Report: Hammers bid €15 million for midfielder

West Ham are reported as having made a €15 million move for Slavia Prague’s Tomas Soucek.

The Guardian reports that a firm bid has been put in for the central midfielder but that his club are looking for €20 million. Hopefully  €18 million deal is on the cards.

The 24 year old can also play at centre back and has scored eight times in 17 appearances this season including Champions League games.

He is essentially a central midfielder who can play a DM role and there are now hopes that he can be tempted into the club before the deadline as David Moyes desperately moves to make additions to the squad.

The manager has said on various occasions that he needs players who will make an immediate difference and the highly rated Soucek could become a valuable addition before the window closes.

Meanwhile former boss Slaven Bilic -speaking after yesterday#s defeat of the Irons made it clear he believes the new Hammers boss can save the club from relegation.

He said: “David can do that. The players have to do it. They have done it before and they have to do it now. Now what is very important is the crowd recognise the situation, be behind the team and be behind the club.”

  1. How can you get behind a club and owners that tell lies after lies 60’000 fans turn up every week and all they spend is 20million net should be bladdy ashemed off them self’s treating the fans like there thick the only reason they spent 80 mil last year is cos they spent next to nothing the previous 8 years stop mugging us off

  2. Now more than ever Sullivan must invest in club to save us from relegation! Making derisory offers well below the asking prices means no signings for these barrow boys!

    • That’s an insult to barrow boys, John………..

      I don’t think they can even aspire to be barrow boys……..

      If we should get relegated, I suspect it would be the first time ever we play before a 3/4 empty stadium. At long last, supporters would take the only course which means a jot: walk away.

    • Spot on John. The owners are always trying to chisel The asking price. The situation we are in means we have to be very decisive. Whoever bought Carlos Sanchez?? Must be the worst performing player ever to wear a West Ham shirt?? Zero effort & zero skill. Must never play again for the Hammers

      • Mido and Savio Nsereko are worse imho apart from them I make you right 😁

      • The worse thing about Sanchez was he was at villa before and couldn’t cut it then. Yet some how our scouting network aka the lone ranger thought he would be a good buy. Also his Meant to be on 70k a week, I bet he couldn’t believe his luck, here comes the money train. Worse then average player on that sort on money.

      • We have eleven premier league class players on the books the rest are not good or fit enough for the premier league, with injuries, suspensions and fatigue is it no wonder we find ourselves in the relegation zone. We must get more premier league ready players through the door. Good engine, pace, high work rate not carrying injuries or injury prone.

  3. Too little to late,even if it happens, with the fixtures coming up we could be cut adrift and trying to play catch up with every game being a must win ,even pundits and media are waking up to who are to blame for yet another crisis

  4. Not another player like Haller where everyone says how many goals he scored and it turns outa lot of them were penalties is he? Coz in our team those goals will all be nobles.

  5. This guy looks decent imho him or Sander Berge are a must, add a pacey striker a box 2box midfielder and a left back and we are off to the races.

  6. Y can’t they get 2 midfielders from the championship, I’m sure there is a few that can hack premiership, put Rice in defence till the end of the season with Diop, maybe it’s also the time for Ben Johnson to come in as right back, with Snodgrass, Anderson, Forlans & Yarmolenko as wingers & have Antonia with Haller upfront, just a thought.
