Football Insider claim that Soucek has a complicated relationship with West Ham manager David Moyes, described as having “tension behind the scenes” at the Premier League club.
The website go on to reveal that the Hammers have admitted there is a “very real chance” that the 27-year-old will be sold in the 2022 summer transfer window.

Soucek, who started his career at Slavia Prague, scored five goals and made one assist in 35 games in the Premier League last term.
The Czech Republic international moved to West Ham in a £19m deal from Slavia Prague in 2020 after a successful loan spell in east London.
He has scored nine goals in 49 games for the Czech Republic since making his senior debut for his national team back in 2016.
