Everton, Newcastle United and Aston Villa monitoring West Ham United’s Tomas Soucek 

David Moyes-West Ham United

West Ham United are in danger of losing Tomas Soucek this summer unless they can agree on a new deal with the player.

The Czech international who joined West Ham two years ago is currently discussing a new deal with his club. But both parties have hit an impasse, putting a series of clubs on red alert.

The 27-year-old has been an ever-present in David Moyes’ team over the last two years, but could now be sold if the Hammers are unable to tie him to a new deal at the club.

According to The Sun, West Ham told the Soucek last season that he will not be getting a pay rise any time soon and, as a result, the London club could now be willing to listen to offers above £30 million.

EvertonNewcastle, and Aston Villa have all shown interest in the midfielder, who has scored 19 goals in 105 games for West Ham since joining from Slavia Prague.

He originally joined the Irons on loan in January 2020, before making the move permanent that summer for a fee of £13.5million.

He signed a four-year deal when he joined West Ham and is only half of the way through that. But his present contract makes him one of the lowest earners in the Premier League club. And with West Ham not willing to up his salary to that of other first-team earners, they will look to sell if the right offer comes in this summer. 

But with Chelsea said to be interested in Declan Rice, David Moyes will hope the club can agree with Soucek, or he risks losing both first-choice midfielders.

And with long-serving club captain Mark Noble retiring at the end of last season, the West Ham manager would be left extremely light in midfield.
