Soucek has scored four goals for West Ham this season

The Czech international is fast becoming viable option for bosses having stealthily gone under the radar for most of the season.

Soucek has scored four goals in his last nine outings for West Ham, helping him amass 63 points overall.

Averaging 3.9 points per-game, the 25-year-old has now crept into the top ten midfielders in the entire game ahead of James Maddison (£3.5m), James Rodriguez (£3.6m) and Kai Havertz (£3.4m).

He also boasts more points than Christian Pulisic (£4.1m) and Paul Pogba (£3.4m) combined!

The midfielder is seemingly immune to rotation having played every single minute of every single Premier League game under David Moyes during the 2020-21 campaign.

Soucek has moved into the top ten midfielders and is only owned by 0.8% of gaffers

Soucek is being overlooked by the vast majority of bosses, featuring in just 0.8% of sides – the lowest ownership among the top 15 midfielders.

To put that into perspective, Man City star Riyad Mahrez (£4m) has a 12.8% ownership and has returned just a single point more than Soucek.

So gaffers swapping Mahrez for Soucek would free up £1.2m in funds to strengthen elsewhere in their side – he’s a potentially perfect enabler.

Is his form unsustainable? The statistics suggest not.

The former Slavia Prague ace has had more goal attempts than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£4.8m), Raheem Sterling (£6.9m) and Diogo Jota (£2.8m) this season.

And he’s also had more touches in the opposition penalty area than Son Heung-min (£5.3m) and Bruno Fernandes (£5.7m).
