The performances of the 26-year-old this season haven’t gone unnoticed and the Hammers are keen to reward Soucek with a new deal and a pay increase as some of Europe’s biggest clubs are touted with an interest.
Soucek signed for the Irons on a permanent basis last summer having initially joined on loan last January.
The report states that despite Soucek’s prominent role in the side, the former Slavia Prague ace is not among the highest earners on his current deal in east London, worth around £40,000-£50,000-a-week which expires in 2024.
After a season filled with positives, West Ham must avoid a summer filled with speculation and unrest.
Eaning an average Sofascore rating of 7.18 across the Premier League campaign, Soucek has been a phenomenal signing for the Hammers and one they must retain for next season at least.
It hasn’t just been defensive contributions and consistency where the 6’3 ace has shone – netting eight league goals including some important winners along the way.
