This is partly due to the Scot’s excellent management since beginning his second spell at the Hammers and also his clever business in the transfer market, with one such player looking like he could make the club a fortune.
Since then, his market value has continued to rise exponentially throughout his two-year spell at the club, reaching £40.5m in December last year and remaining at that figure since, proving that Moyes has worked wonders in the transfer market.
His performances have garnered praise from fans and pundits alike, with Sky Sports’ Micah Richards describing him as a “man mountain” following a match against Tottenham Hotspur in which he came back onto the field despite a nasty head injury.
Despite his growing importance to the team and West Ham’s style of play, a report stated that Moyes had halted contract talks with the midfielder, although they are looking to resume discussions over a new deal in the summer.
Soucek’s valuation will only continue to rise if he can maintain such wonderful performances, while West Ham could make a massive profit if they decide to sell him and invest in other areas of the team.
Until then, the Hammers have a fantastic player who just seems to be getting better all the time, and that is all down to Moyes and his eye for a bargain in the transfer market. One thing is for sure; he played a blinder with the 2020 capture of Soucek.
