Hammers boss David Moyes is desperate to bring a new centre-forward to the London Stadium this summer.
West Ham have been linked with about 40 strikers since Sebastien Haller was sold to Ajax in January.
One of the names to have consistently been linked with a move to the Hammers is Adam Hlozek (The Athletic and Foot Mercato). The talented 19-year-old striker is one of the hottest properties on the continent.
West Ham Hlozek dream over?
The teenager would be absolutely perfect for the Hammers. Unfortunately for us, however, it seems as though he won’t be rocking up at the London Stadium anytime soon.
The Athletic reckon that West Ham are unlikely to sign the Czech Republic international this summer.
That his a real blow to the Hammers fans. The London Stadium faithful would really appreciate a striker with Hlozek’s talent.
He was in superb form for Sparta last season.
The 19-year-old racked up 15 goals and eight assists in just 19 league games (Transfermarkt).
Hlozek really does have so much talent and potential. It’s scary to think just how good he could go on to become. The Czech Republic international has been described as an ‘exceptional striker’ by Sparta Prague boss Pavel Vrba (iSport).
He is exactly the kind of striker David Moyes should be looking to bring to East London.

It may well be a moot point, however. It seems as though Hlozek will either be staying in Prague or moving to a club other than West Ham this summer.
