According to Football Insider, West Ham United are keeping tabs on yet another Slavia Prague sensation in Jan Kuchta – with the attacking hotshot now entering the Irons’ radar as they send scouts to watch his recent performance against Rangers.
Kuchta, who has bagged a prolific 11 goals and five assists in the Fortuna Liga for Slavia Prague, scoring two and assisting two more in the Europa League also (Transfermarkt), is now on GSB’s watchlist as he enters the list of players who have been linked from the Czech Republic side.
West Ham eyeing Kuchta
West Ham have previously been eyeing more signings from Slavia Prague after the successful acquisitions of both Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek – with goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar, known as ‘The Rock’, and Abdallah Sima touted with moves to east London (Claret & Hugh).
Now, Football Insider have revealed that West Ham are also monitoring Kuchta after his impressive campaign – but the Irons may face competition this time.
Transfer Tavern take
Indeed, scouts working for Newcastle United, Southampton and Brighton were also in attendance to watch the 24-year-old in action against Rangers in the Europa League.
Kuchta is Slavia Prague’s second-top scorer in all competitions, and as West Ham potentially have their eye on a striker search in the summer, he could be a prime candidate from a familiar side.
