West Ham want bargain move for Lukas Masopust

West Ham United want to sign Slavia Prague winger Lukas Masopust this summer, according to 90min.

The website have reported that the Irons are one of seven Premier League sides in the race to bring the Czech international to England.

It is suggested that Masopust could be available for a bargain price of only £6million as they look to reinforce their squad.

The Irons have been linked with numerous Czech players already this summer.

When you add the likes of Alex Kral, this is another who was away at the EUROs with our duo Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal.

Moyes has been looking to take advantage of that market, as cheaper players are available.

£6million for Masopust is a bargain price, and it is no surprise that nearly half of the Premier League is reportedly interested.

Have a word.

Soucek and Coufal have become inspirational players in this squad, and they are even bigger for their national side.

They could both easily be in contact with Masopust, and push these negotiations in our favour.

That being said, there is only so much they can do, and the rest is up to the club to get it across the line and pay the correct fee.

Masopust was described as “exceptional” ahead of the EUROs and he could add some quality depth in the final third.

In the modern era, bargains such as this one appear impossible to come across, but the Irons have been single-handily finding them.

Coufal arrived for a similar fee, and we could be about to unearth yet another bargain in the European market.
