Transfer News from Premier League as West Ham United revived their earlier interest in Alex Kral, the Czech mid-fielder from Spartak Moscow.  

West Ham United has finished the Premier League season at 6th position, hence they already have qualified for Europa League.

Manager David Moyes and the West Ham board of Directors will prefer to strengthen their side for the European campaign next season.

Hence, West Ham has revived their interest upon Czech mid-fielder Alex Kral.  


Portrait: Who is Alex Kral?

Alex Kral, a 23 years old mid-fielder player for Spartak Moscow. The Czech player graduated from Slavia Prague academy. He then continued playing in their Senior team, before moving to Russia in 2019.

The last time West Ham enquired about him in the January Transfer window, he had a value of around £14 Million.

Alex Kral has the ability to play like a box-to-box midfielder. He idolizes Toni Kroos and Frenkie De Jong. This season, he has played 30 games for Spartak Moscow. Didn’t score any goal, but provided 5 assists in the Premier division league.

Alex Kral’s West Ham familiarity

Alex Kral knows West Ham’s defensive mid-fielder, Tomas Soucek, from his Slavia Prague days. He also knows Vladimir Coufal, the Czech defender playing at West Ham.

This suggests that, even if Alex Kral makes a move to England, he will not feel like a new fish. Known peers are certainly good to mix up with the squad quickly.
