West Ham are set to make a £16.8 million bid for Sparta Prague forward Adam Hlozek when the summer transfer window opens.
That’s according to a report from Tuttomercatoweb who claim that the talented 19-year-old could be Hammers bound soon.
West Ham boss David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium in the summer transfer window.
The Hammers have had to rely on 32-year-old Michail Antonio as our only option through the middle for far too long now.
Now, Hlozek isn’t an out-and-out striker. He can play anywhere along the front-line, and is incredibly talented. But he isn’t an old fashioned number nine.
Nevertheless, it seems as though Moyes wants to sign him this summer…
West Ham set to make Hlozek bid
Tuttomercatoweb claim that the Hammers are set to make a €20 million (£16.8 million) bid for the Czech Republic international.
We think that the talented teenager would be a superb signing for the East London outfit and Moyes should snap him up asap.
Hlozek has been in fine form for Sparta Prague this season. He has racked up 12 goals and 15 assists in 42 games (Transfermarkt).
Popular football scouting website Football Talent Scout describe Hlozek an an ‘amazing’ talent.
He really is a very exciting young talent. Hlozek possesses exceptional technique, is a very good finisher and has the potential to go on and become a truly elite striker. His ability to play anywhere along the front-line will undoubtedly appeal to Moyes as well.
£16.8 million sounds like stunning value for a player with Hlozek’s talent and potential.
The fact that the 19-year-old plays for a club that Daniel Kretinsky has very strong links with means that a move to West Ham is highly likely. He is a Czech Republic international as well, and we all know how highly Moyes rates the Czechs!
Whether Sparta Prague will accept the allegedly incoming £16.8 million bid from West Ham for Hlozek remains to be seen though.
