Tomáš Souček has starred for West Ham United after joining them from Slavia Prague in the winter 2020 market.
The Hammers initially took the midfielder on loan before making his stay permanent last summer.
His performances have seen him linked with other clubs. At the end of the last year, the 26-year-old admitted he is happy in London amid claims of Bayern Munich’s interest to acquire his services.
Earlier this month, there were weak claims Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta’s camp contacted the Czech Republic international. It was also stated David Moyes will not let the player leave for less than €30m.
According to iSport.cz, the Catalan club ‘closely monitor’ the West Ham man, but haven’t taken any ‘tangible steps’ for his signing.
Souček’s agent Pavel Paska didn’t comment on the Barcelona links when he emphasised his client’s priorities.
“Tomáš and I have agreed that he will fully concentrate on the rest of the season. He fights with West Ham for the highest places in the Premier League, then the Euro awaits him. These are the priorities we stick to,” Paska was quoted as saying by iSport.cz.
Should West Ham decide to cash in on Souček, they will ‘certainly want to make a decent profit’. iSport.cz are of the belief this may be a problem for Barcelona due to their poor economic conditions.
