West Ham United manager David Moyes is interested in Roma striker Patrik Schick and Slavia Prague winger Lukas Masopust, agent Pavel Paska has told eFotbal.
Perhaps inspired by the superb performances of Tomas Soucek since he swapped Prague for London in the January transfer window, the Hammers are now making enquiries about two more Czech Republic internationals.
After rebuilding his reputation with ten goals on loan at RB Leipzig, £18 million Roma misfit Schick has apparently been lined up as the man to add some firepower to West Ham’s underachieving front line.
After firing Slavia to another Czech title with seven goals and five assists from his favoured right-sided role, iSport claim that Masopust has been the subject of a £4 million bid from the capital city club.
“So far, West Ham and I have exchanged only the first love letters. Now we will take a break and return to negotiations after the holidays,” Pasku says, confirming West Ham’s interest in two in-form attackers.
“(Moyes) asked me about Patrik Schick, Lukas Masopust, but also about some other players. He wanted to know what Patrik looked like at the moment, he was also interested in Lukas.
“I said that it would be good for him (Masopust) and me (to go to West Ham). I’m glad I opened the door. Lukas Masopust would deserve a transfer and I would very much like it. He’s a great football player and a great boy.”
While Masopust would surely jump at the chance to join Soucek in English football, a deal for Schick looks far more difficult.
After all, the former Sampdoria sensation has made it clear that his priority is securing a permanent deal at RB Leipzig.
