According to report from Football Insider, Manchester United are considering a move for West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek ahead of the summer window.

The Czech Republic international has impressed since joining the Hammers and is attracting interest from several elite clubs.

Sources have told Football Insider that United’s talent-spotters are closely monitoring Soucek, 25, with a view to a potential transfer.

So far, the player has started all 23 of West Ham United’s Premier League matches and had played every minute until he was sent off against Fulham in stoppage time last weekend, a decision that was subsequently overturned.

The midfielder has scored eight league goals and tops the West Ham scoring charts.

Meanwhile, the Hammers will be looking to make a healthy profit on the £15million they paid to sign him from Slavia Prague over a year ago.
