David Moyes has reservations about signing Adam Hlozek for West Ham this summer according to a report from The Athletic.

That’s in spite of the fact that the 18-year-old has been recommended to the Scot by Hammers duo Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal (The Athletic).

West Ham’s need for a new centre-forward has been well-documented already this summer.

Moyes still has only Michail Antonio to call upon as a recognised senior centre-forward.

It will be vital for the Scot to bring a top class striker to the London Stadium this summer. And the Sparta Prague hitman seems like a brilliant option for us.

David Moyes unsure of Adam Hlozek signing

The Athletic claims that the West Ham boss is a big fan of Hlozek and appreciates his undoubted talent.

 

Moyes allegedly has reservations about the 18-year-old’s ability to hit the ground running in the Premier League, however.

Hlozek was in superb form for Sparta Prague last season.

He racked up 15 goals and eight assists in just 19 league games for the Czech outfit (Transfermarkt).

Hlozek is undoubtedly an absolute star in the making. The Athletic claims he could be picked up for just €17 million (£14.6 million) this summer.

That seems like sensational value for West Ham.

It seems as though David Moyes is not 100% convinced, however. And if that is indeed the case, we will back the boss to the hilt.
