In a recent tweet, journalist Toby Cudworth claimed that West Ham United have serious interest in Sparta Prague forward Adam Hlozek. It is understood that the Hammers are eyeing a move for the Czech Republic sensation despite not launching a move for him earlier this summer.

Hlozek’s Impressive Form In Domestic Football This Season
Hlozek has enjoyed a fine run of form at Prague this season as he has already put in a handful of productive displays as the focal point of Pavel Vrba’s attack. The 19-year-old has been involved in ten matches for his boyhood club so far in this campaign, banging in three goals and securing three assists across all competitions.
The talented youngster has caught the eye by establishing himself as a decent striker at the Letná Stadium. However, he is still quite raw and would need time to develop himself into a consistent goal-getter at the highest level.
Sealing a move to West Ham could be a good career move for Hlozek as he would enjoy the challenge of testing himself against the best players of Premier League football. The Czech Republic international is already good enough to serve as a decent back-up to Michail Antonio at the London Stadium which makes him a worthy target for David Moyes to pursue in January or at the end of this campaign.
Is Hlozek A Decent Option For The Hammers?
Hlozek has already begun to show that he can be a reliable finisher in front of the opponent’s goal. The promising youngster has even chipped in with some important assists for Sparta Prague this season. The eight-time Czech Republic international is a moderately paced striker who can pull off a few well-timed runs in behind the opposition backline. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement in his game, so Moyes would have to be patient with his progress if he intends to get him on board in the future.
Currently, the Hammers have got Michail Antonio as their only recognized first-team centre-forward. Therefore, a striker of Hlozek’s potential will be a great option for the East London outfit to consider in the next transfer window.
At 19, the Sparta Prague whizkid has the potential to become a world-class striker in the coming seasons, so Moyes would be wise to try everything in his power to secure his services. He will add some much-needed cover to West Ham’s frontline and could go on to become a fan-favorite at the London Stadium in the not too distant future.
