Writing on Twitter, Sport Italia TV journalist Gianluigi Longari has backed reports of a major transfer development at West Ham United.
The Lowdown; West Ham and Kral…
The Hammers, according to recent reports, could add to their Czech Republic contingent this summer with the addition of midfield powerhouse Alex Kral.
Indeed, he could join both Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek as additions from the nation and reports suggest talks are furthering for the player.
Football Insider recently reported that GSB are willing to pay over £20m to secure his services and discussions are at an advanced stage.
ExWHUemployee, meanwhile, also believes that the club want to get a deal done for him before the European Championships this summer (West Ham Way Podcast).
The Latest: Journalist backs reports of Kral to West Ham…
Now, writing on Twitter, journalist Longari has backed these reports of Kral potentially moving to east London this summer.
Dropping a four-word message on social media, the reporter states that the 23-year-old is in fact ‘leaving for West Ham‘.
He also believes Kral’s current club, Spartak Moscow, are already on the hunt for a replacement and have earmarked Vasco da Gama midfielder Bruno Gomes as his replacement.
The Verdict: Time to get excited?
Numerous reports appear to be backing Kral to West Ham and we believe that, if the Irons can get a deal done, he may be the perfect midfield alternative to Soucek and Declan Rice.
West Ham will need strength in depth for the 2021/2022 season given they are set to compete in the Europa League group stages and the young Czech maestro is accomplished as a midfield anchor.
Irons supporters will surely be hoping this transfer comes to fruition, offering more depth in midfield and perhaps even a like for like replacement if the worst-case scenario happens and Rice leaves the club.
