has been speaking on the latest episode of The West Ham Way podcast (25th March, 08:01) to discuss the future of Tomas Soucek ahead of this summer’s transfer window

West Ham signed the Czech international permanently from last summer in a believed to be worth in the region of £19m, according to BBC Sport.

The 26-year-old has excelled this season in the Premier League, having scored nine goals in his 29 appearances for the Hammers who find themselves just two points off fourth-placed Chelsea.

Soucek’ stunning first full season in the Premier League has reportedly attracted attention from some clubs around Europe, according to ExWHUemployee, with the summer transfer window only a few months away.

He said: “Well there is already some European clubs looking. I mean, there’s obviously been no offer for him. But there are, worryingly, people [circling] now because you wouldn’t not notice him.

“You see a midfielder both on the international stage and in the Premier League, you know, for a team that’s sitting fifth in the Premier League now, and he’s scoring that many goals, you would help but notice him, would you?” 

Can West Ham keep Soucek this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 26-year-old hit the headlines during the week whilst away on international duty with the after scoring a ‘perfect’ hat-trick in their 6-2 victory over Estonia. 

TIF Thoughts on Soucek’s future…

The Czech international’s first full season in the Premier League has been remarkable in terms of his goals return. There may be a lot of clubs out there kicking themselves that they did not sign the midfielder themselves, judging by the reported current interest in him at present.

If any team is going to prise Soucek away from the Hammers, they are now going to have to cough up for the £36m-rated man given what he has brought to the West Ham side this season.
