According to a report by the Daily Express, via West Ham Central, the Irons’ owners GSB have held extensive talks with the representatives of Spartak Moscow midfielder Alex Kral and are now looking to complete his signing.
The Czech Republic international, who could provide additional cover in midfield for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek, is also said to be keen on a move to the London Stadium.
He could follow in the footsteps of international teammates Soucek and Vladimir Coufal as West Ham reportedly enter talks over his signing this summer. GSB are also ready to fork out £14m to secure his signature with the player’s agent Karol Kisel, even confirming this week that he was in England for discussions.
As this news emerges, a section of West Ham supporters have been left excited by the interest in Kral, with one believing that he would be a ‘fantastic signing’.
