Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have now erupted over a transfer claim involving Sparta Prague striker Adam Hlozek.
The Czech Republic international, who has been linked with a move to east London in recent months, is seemingly still on the club’s radar as they continue their search for a back-up striker.
Should Hlozek be West Ham's number one striker target?
Yes, bring him in
No, need a more proven striker
Currently, star man Michail Antonio is their only natural senior option and one injury could spell trouble for manager David Moyes as he aims to maintain his side’s fine start to the campaign.
Indeed, speaking on the West Ham Way Podcast, the Hammers source believes that Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky, who is currently in talks to buy a 27 per cent stake in the club, views Sparta as a feeder club and Hlozek could now be looked at again in January (Patreon).
Flocking to this claim, it’s safe to say many Irons supporters are excited, and it isn’t difficult to see why going by the striker’s prolific return of 15 goals and eight assists in just 19 Fortuna Liga appearances last campaign (Transfermarkt).
At just 19-years-old, he would also come with a major sell-on value going by his potential.
As a result, many West Ham fans have erupted over this claim on the striker starlet – find all of their best Twitter verdicts down below.
