£14m-rated Alex Kral likes West Ham Tweet amid reports the Hammers are interested in him
West Ham are reportedly one of five Premier League clubs in the race to sign Spartak Moscow star Alex Kral, having enjoyed success with recent signings from Eastern Europe in the form of Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal – and now the midfielder has like one of West Ham’s recent Tweets.
Kral, 23, is a holding midfielder that has become a regular for Russian side Spartak since joining the club in the summer of 2019. He has clocked up 53 appearances in that time, and has become a regular alongside Soucek and Coufal for his country – clocking up 16 caps for the Czech Republic.
Sky Sports claim that West Ham are one of five clubs to open contract with the player’s agent ahead of a summer move – while According to The Mirror (23/05, p74) in the past few days, it would cost £14million to sign him. Now, Kral has added fuel to the fire – liking a Tweet posted by the Hammers.
TBR’s view – Kral is needed at West Ham
West Ham need holding midfielders, and that is even before discussing the future of captain Mark Noble. Declan Rice and Soucek have formed a formidable partnership in holding midfield, while Noble has acted as cover. But that is about it for options in the middle of the park.
Noble has already confirmed he will leave West Ham at the end of next season. So, the Hammers need midfielders as both cover and competition and Kral can do both. With the Europa League on the horizon, Kral is more of a necessity than a luxury.
