The 27-year-old Tomas Soucek joined the Hammers on loan in January 2020. The short spell was successful and West Ham sealed the permanent transfer that summer window. The midfielder thrived under David Moyes becoming a key link in the attacking potency of the club. He featured in over 100 games and scored 18 goals.
Now the GiveMeSport report that the negotiations over contract extension are progressing too slowly, which causes frustration among West Ham’s board. The player has two years left under existing contract.
While the two sides cannot agree, the interest from other clubs intensifies. According to HITC, four Premier League clubs show the concrete interest – Aston Villa, Everton, Newcastle and Tottenham.
West Ham will do everything possible to keep one of their most important stars. However, if the parties fail to extend the deal, the only right decision will be selling Soucek this summer as his current market value reaches £30 million. Finally, if Tomas decides to leave, the only level up for him among the four above-mentioned clubs is definitely Tottenham, not to mention that he could stay in London.
