West Ham United: Top club insider makes major Patrik Schick transfer claim

West Ham United: Top club insider makes major Patrik Schick transfer claim -West Ham Transfer Rumours

As per Claret & Hugh, sharing what that they heard from a ‘top club insider’, some potentially exciting transfer news has come out of West Ham involving Czech Republic star Patrik Schick.

The Lowdown: West Ham falter in bid to sign a striker…

Over the January tranfser window, the Hammers failed in multiple attempts to bring a striker to east London, with substantial bids lodged for the likes of Darwin Nunez and Duvan Zapata.

Offers for the strikers simply weren’t enough to prise them away from their current clubs given the late nature of those attempts, and David Moyes will have to wait until the summer to try again.

However, in a bit of good news for Irons supporters, it appears that West Ham could be ready to back a ‘huge striker bid’.

The Latest: Top West Ham insider makes Schick claim…

According to Claret & Hugh, as per a ‘top club insider’, West Ham and new board member Daniel Kretinsky could be ready to back a big bid to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Schick.

It is believed that Kretinsky is a big fan of the attacker, who has scored a remarkable 20 goals in as many Bundesliga matches this season.

The Verdict: Exciting claim…

Given that Leverkusen will apparently demand around £50m for Schick, news that Kretinsky could be ready to back Moyes with a big-money bid comes as very promising.

The 26-year-old’s goal return is certainly an incentive to move, with Leverkusen’s managing director of sport Rudi Völler also making some pretty wild comparisons. The former Germany boss likened Schick to superstar strikers Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski, all while labelling the towering 6 foot 3 striker a ‘world class’ player (Bundesliga).

If West Ham do get backed by Kretinsky, the summer transfer window could certainly be an interesting one for the Irons faithful.
