Journalist Toby Cudworth, sharing news on Twitter and writing for 90min, has an interesting West Ham United transfer update involving Sparta Prague sensation Adam Hlozek.
The Lowdown: Kretinsky connection…
Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky, completing his purchase of a 27 per cent minority stake in West Ham late last year, has serious connections to Sparta as their co-owner and club president.
This has lead to links to some of their key players, including Hlozek, with Kretisnky’s presence said to be a major factor in any potential Hammers deal to sign the exciting striker.
The Latest: Hlozek ‘offered’
However, in the 90 min report, it is claimed that both manager David Moyes and head of recruitment Rob Newman ‘do not want to sign off’ on the move – opening the door for other interested clubs.
The Verdict: Interesting update…
The fact both Moyes and Newman are standing in the way of this move indicates that Hlozek isn’t particularly rated at Rush Green.
Given how threatening the 19-year-old has been in the last two years, combined with glowing plaudits, we find this quite interesting.
The Czech starlet has racked up 23 goals and 21 assists in the Fortuna Liga alone since the beginning of 2020/2021, pretty impressive numbers for such a young forward.
His manager Pavel Vrba has also called Hlozek an ‘exceptional striker‘ with the likes of Juventus, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Premier League title-chasers Liverpool all credited with interest (90min).
The sky appears to be the limit for Sparta’s exciting ace with news of both Moyes’ and Newman’s disinterest coming as a surprise.
