A lot of West Ham fans want the club to sign midfielder Tomas Soucek in the summer. The current loanee from Slavia Prague has impressed and Football.London is reporting that the Hammers will be available to buy him for £13.5 million if they stay up.
Soucek came from Slavia Prague in January after scoring 8 goals in 17 league appearances and two goals in 6 Champions League appearances this season. As per Transfermarkt, the player can play both in attacking midfield and defensive midfield and even though he has only played four times for the club, he has seemingly impressed and would have appeared more if it was not for a minor injury he suffered.
In fact, he’s already averaging the joint-second highest interceptions per game (2, via WhoScored) and the most clearances (3) of any central midfielder.
Indeed, the Irons may need a fresh option soon, as current midfielder and captain Mark Noble is 32 years old and surely in the autumn of his career. Soucek was on the bench last weekend against Arsenal after coming back from injury, but many expect the midfielder to come back into the team this weekend against Wolves.
Has Tomas Soucek done enough to be signed permanently?
Here is what some fans are signing about Soucek:

Easily worth the money from what we’ve seen of him so far. Promising signs.

If we stay up this should be number 1 priority.
