Bayer Leverkusen target West Ham defenders

Bayer 04 Leverkusen would like to strengthen their squad with a Czech international in the winter: Vladimir Coufal has been targeted by the Werkself.

So far, the left-back position has been seen as a weakness at Bayer 04 - but the Rhinelanders obviously want to step up their game on the other side too and sign an alternative to Jeremie Frimpong. According to Sky, Vladimir Coufal is a specific topic under the Bayer Cross and is expected to switch from West Ham United to Leverkusen in the winter.

According to the report, Rhinelander officials will travel to London later this week to negotiate the 30-year-old's signing. Coufal started the season with the Hammers but has only made two appearances in the last seven games (once in the starting XI). The Czech's contract expires in the summer, but there is an option to extend it.

Sky reports that Timothy Fosu-Mensah has not lived up to expectations under the Bayer Cross, which is why a new right-back is to come. Since Frimpong can also be used more offensively, Bayer 04 obviously want to add quality here. Coufal leaving West Ham in winter is "absolutely possible".
