Former footballer Steve Bull has claimed that West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek is worth £35-40 million.
Since arriving at the London Stadium, Soucek has ventured from strength to strength.
A six-month loan spell was swiftly converted into a permanent £14.58 million move following a transformative impact in east London.
Helping to guide the Hammers away from the bottom three last season, he has formed a partnership with Declan Rice that has cemented the duo as the bedrock of European-pushing energy this season.
Speaking to Transfer Tavern, Bull claimed of the Czech stalwart: “If he is good enough then somebody will approach West Ham and try to prise him away for around £35-40 million.
“Someone will tempt West Ham with an offer because he’s a very good player.”
That estimation broadly aligns with Transfermarkt’s valuation of the player, who currently value Soucek at £36 million.
When the fact that he is responsible for almost one in five of West Ham’s goals in the league this season, an altogether elevated view of Soucek can be taken.
In that sense, Bull is more than justified in his beliefs over Soucek.
