West Ham United have been heavily linked with a move for Slavia Prague forward Abdallah Sima in recent months.
According to Daily Mail, the Czech outfit have held talks with the Premier League club regarding the player.
Slavia Prague manager Jindrich Trpisovsky has now confirmed West Ham’s interest in their star striker.
He said: “There is interest in Abdallah Sima. There’s a set price at which he could leave. We focus on managing the rest of the season with us.
“We talked about it with the boys from West Ham, where they have him very high on the list of possible reinforcements.”
Sima has scored 19 goals and eight assists for the Czech outfit this season and he is highly rated across Europe.
The player has also been linked with Crystal Palace, but the Hammers may be able to offer the player European football next term.
The young attacker can operate anywhere across the front three and would add goals and creativity to West Ham’s attack.
The Hammers sold Sebastian Haller to Ajax during the January transfer window, and David Moyes is yet to sign a replacement.
Sima could prove to be a quality long term replacement for the French striker.
West Ham have been overly reliant on Michail Antonio for goals, and Moyes must add more attacking depth before the start of the next season.
The Londoners will need a deeper squad to compete in the Premier League and European competition if they qualify.
