A major West Ham United transfer update has now come to light involving Sparta Prague striker Adam Hlozek, according to reports out of Italy.
The Lowdown: West Ham eye new forward…
The Irons and manager David Moyes could finally put an end to their long and drawn out search for a new forward this summer, coming over a year and a half after club-record signing Sebastian Haller departed the club for Ajax.
Another attacker who has been tipped with a possible move to east London is Sparta sensation Hlozek, who has been brilliant yet again for the Czech outfit this season.
The Latest: Hammers offer ready…
As per their sources, the Hammers, and by extension transfer chief Newman, are ‘ready to present a proposal’ of around £20 million to sign Hlozek this summer.
This comes after his head-turning campaign with the 19-year-old scoring 22 goals, 17 in the league and five in cup competitions.
The Verdict: Bring him in?
The teenager could be a real star going by his form this season and recent acclaims through the media.
Pundit and former Leeds United striker Noel Whelan has called him a potential ‘no-brainer’ signing for West Ham and the ‘stand-out’ at Sparta – impressive tags for such a young player (Football Insider).
Hlozek’s glowing reputation could only grow larger with the only gamble on Moyes’ part being whether he can hack it in England.
£20 million certainly seems like a big price to pay if they’re going to find out, but with summer right around the corner, we expect to see more developments concerning the Czech Republic international and West Ham.
