Inter Milan lining up move for West Ham’s Tomas Soucek
Soucek has stepped up for the outgoing Declan Rice for the Hammers
The 28-year-old’s agreement with the Hammers expires in June 2024, and he has not yet signed a new one. However, it is believed that West Ham have the option to initiate a 12-month renewal.
The Hammers might not exercise their choice if Soucek makes it obvious that he wishes to depart the London Stadium and Inter are willing to put him to the test, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Serie A heavyweights have earned a track record as market-savvy operators after signing multiple players on free transfers after years of exorbitant expenditure.
Similar to Hakan Calhanoglu, Andre Onana, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the preceding two years, new faces like Marcus Thuram, Davy Klaasen, and Juan Cuadrado joined in the summer.
Soucek meets the description for Inter coach Simone Inzaghi’s desire to provide the Nerazzurri midfield additional essential strength and height.
Following Declan Rice departed West Ham for £105 million to sign for Arsenal in the summer, the Czech Republic international stood up to fill the vacuum left by the England international. He is now West Ham’s longest-serving midfielder.
In ten games across all leagues so far this campaign, Soucek has scored four goals, notably two in the Hammers’ most recent two Premier League matches against Sheffield United and Newcastle.
After a tough season in which Soucek lost his spot in David Moyes’ squad amid relegation concerns for a team that had invested $165 million on fresh faces, this one has been promising.
