The Hammers are joined by Newcastle United, Southampton and Brighton & Hove Albion in a list of clubs ‘keeping tabs’ on Kutcha, who played 71 minutes on Thursday evening as the Czech Republic top-flight side drew 1-1 with newly-crowned Scottish champions Rangers in the Europa League.
That appearance was the 24-year-old’s 25th outing of the season, yielding 13 goals and seven assists thus far.
No surprise West Ham are scouting the former employers of Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal hoping to cherry-pick more talent.
Holding a pre-existing relationship with the central European club, as well as the obvious links between former teammates, should West Ham wish to further any interest you’d have to assume they’d be in pole position.
Whilst little is known about the standard of the league as a whole, Kutcha’s goal record stands up and having seen the impact of Soucek and Coufal, it would be foolish to doubt whether a promising career in the Czech Republic can translate to the Premier League.
