Tottenham Hotspur Keeping A Keen Eye On This West Ham United Star: Good Option For Conte?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Daily Express stated that Tottenham Hotspur are keeping a keen eye on West Ham United star Tomas Soucek. It is believed that Spurs could face competition from Juventus in the race to recruit the Czech Republic sensation.

Soucek’s Solid Campaign At The London Stadium

Soucek has been an ever-present member of David Moyes’ midfield this season and has been responsible for producing several dominant displays for the Hammers over the past ten months. The talented midfield ace has made 48 appearances for the East London giants during this campaign, netting six goals and grabbing one assist in all competitions.

The 27-year-old has given a good account of himself in both halves based on his average of 1.9 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 2.7 clearances, 1.3 shots and 0.6 key passes per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even taken care of the ball when distributing possession deep inside the opponent’s half, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 77.6% in the top tier of English football (stats via whoscored).

Is Soucek A Good Option For Tottenham Hotspur Boss Antonio Conte?

Soucek is a tough-tackling midfielder and can read the danger well to earn the ball back for his team at the centre of the park. He doesn’t mind putting his foot through the ball when required and can also strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range. The Czech Republic has even got the vision to create some inviting chances in the attacking third of the field.

A midfielder of Soucek’s quality will be a wise addition to Tottenham‘s squad ahead of the new campaign. We can expect the Hammers star to inject more quality into Antonio Conte‘s midfield department.

Soucek is good enough to rival Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg for a regular starting spot at the North London club in the coming seasons. Thus, the Czech Republic international will be a brilliant option for Spurs to consider during the summer transfer window. At 27, Soucek is playing some of his best football at the moment and could help bring some success back to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the future.
