West Ham United are hoping to agree a new contract with star defender Vladimir Coufal.
The Czech Republic international joined West Ham on a three-year deal last summer, and he has been a key player for David Moyes.
The former Slavia Prague player was one of the best signings in the Premier League last season, and it is no surprise that the Hammers are looking to tie him down to a long-term contract.
According to Sky Sports, the Premier League club feel that Coufal is an important player and they are prepared to hand him an improved contract.
However, the report also states that the defender is currently disappointed with the terms West Ham have offered him.
The Hammers will be playing in the Europa League next season and need to hold on to their best players to progress in the competition.
Coufal has proven himself to be an indispensable asset for the London club after starting 34 Premier League games last season.
Keeping him should be a top priority, and the club need to agree an improved contract with the player as soon as possible.
The defender cost West Ham just £5 million last summer, and he has proven to be one of their best bargains in recent years.
