West Ham told to pay £33.7m to sign Juventus sensation Matias Soule

West Ham United are facing serious competition for £33.7 million-rated Juventus sensation Matias Soule, according to Tuttosport.

The Argentine prodigy is already on the radar of newly promoted Premier League clubs Leicester City and Southampton, while Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen are also interested.

Juventus are holding out for a fee of around £33.7m, but the Hammers value Soule at just over half their asking price, so it remains to be seen if both sides can find common ground.

There have yet to be any official proposals for Soule. Reports suggest the player is keen to prove his worth during pre-season before making any decision about his future.

Despite the flurry of clubs showing interest in Soule, Leverkusen could be West Ham’s biggest obstacle to landing his signature.

The Bundesliga champions can offer Champions League football, which could be enough to sway Soule’s decision in their favour, although the prospect of playing in the Premier League could also be alluring.

West Ham should submit a bid for Soule

Signing a player of Soule’s quality would be a major coup for West Ham this summer.

The 21-year-old was the lynchpin of a struggling Frosinone side that was eventually relegated from the Italian top flight, notching 11 goals and three assists in 36 league games.


Soule also created eight big chances and averaged 2.3 key passes per 90 minutes.

He finished the season as the most consistent player in Frosinone’s squad, and West Ham could use a player with his quality.
