West Ham United insider @ExWHUemployee has recently made a claim about the club’s previous interest in signing Czech Republic defender Michal Frydrych.
During the recent transfer window, the Hammers sealed the arrival of four players, two of which were on a permanent basis and two on loan (per Transfermarkt).
During the latest episode of The West Ham Way Podcast, @ExWHUemployee claimed that the Hammers were eyeing a swoop for a third player from the Prague club during the transfer window.
He said: “So, it was talked about on Claret and Hugh that we wanted to sign a Czech defender who we didn’t end up signing in the end.
“I did mention the fact that we wanted to sign a Czech defender previously. His name is Michal Frydrych and he ended up moving to Polish side Wisla Krakow for [€800,000].
“It was someone that we wanted to sign and we did put a late bid in for him towards the end of the window, but we were too late with that one.”
TIF Thoughts on what @ExWHUemployee had to say about Michal Frydrych…
As can be seen in what the in-the-know podcaster had to say, it seems that the Irons were keen on signing the Czech defender but made an offer for him too late.
In mid-September, the 30-year-old defender moved from Slavia Prague to Wisla Krakow for an €800,000 (£720,000) fee (per Transfermarkt).
