West Ham United are trying to reach an agreement with standout defender Vladimir Coufal on a new contract.
At the start of the season, the Czech Republic international signed a three-year contract with West Ham, and he has been an important player for David Moyes.
Last season, the former Slavia Prague star was one of the greatest additions in the Premier League, so it’s no surprise that the West Ham want to sign him to a long-term deal.
According to Sky Sports, the Premier League club believes Coufal is a valuable player and is willing to offer him a better contract.
The defender, though, is said to be dissatisfied with the terms provided to him by West Ham, according to the article.
West Ham will compete in the Europa League next season, and in order to succeed, they will need to keep their finest players.
Coufal has established himself as a key player for the London club, starting 34 Premier League games in the last campaign.
The Premier League club should make it a top priority to keep him at the club for as long as possible, and West Ham should try to reach an agreement with the player as soon as possible.
Last summer, West Ham paid £5 million for the defender, and he has proven to be one of their outstanding buys in recent years.
