United/Gunners chasing Hammers Czech target

West Ham have been joined in the chase for Slavia Prague goal machine Abdallah Sima by Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Irons had cornered the market at the club by bringing in Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal but the secret is now out and the race on to snatch the 19 year old hotshot.

The youngster has scored 10 goals in 14 appearances this season in all competitions and is very much on the Irons wanted list but the Senegal born striker is now a target for a growing number of clubs.

Slavia are very much a selling club and it now remains to be seen whether the presence of Soucek and Couval at the London Stadium will be enough to entice him to the London Stadium.

That could be ab important issue as we were told categorically by a source close to the player: “There will be no big bucks splashed out and wages are going to drop this summer – it’s a case of which he would fancy and the Czech connection could become important.”
