West Ham United seem to be enjoying two recent transfers the club made from central Europe, as Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek have become vital additions to the starting XI since their respective arrivals in east London.
The duo’s success has seemingly influenced the board’s recruitment plans. According to Claret and Hugh, and as tweeted by @whufc_news, the Hammers are eagerly scouting the top sides in the Czech Republic.
This is after the recent success they have had with Soucek and Coufal, who both arrived from Slavia Prague, with the Irons also seeking a new striker.
This development has received a mixed reaction from some of the West Ham faithful on Twitter. With the recent success of the two Czech players, it makes sense for the club to continue scouting the same area. However, such a refined focus on the central European country could see them miss out on potential gems from other locations.
Here is how West Ham fans are reacting to this news:

The fact we got two good players from Slavia is irrelevant, doesn’t mean future signings fro. there will be good. What kind of thinking is thst🤦. Surely we should be scouting all leagues equally to find the best striker fit for our club.

We have such tunnel vision… Probably because we have 1 scout.

Crazy we all knew what we needed at West Ham, Grafters players that are proud to play for the club and give their all every time they play. How did it take Sullivan this long to find a couple https://t.co/4snNgfFiyP
