The Sunday Mirror reports that West Ham United are keen on acquiring Bayer Leverkusen’s Adam Hlozek. The 21-year-old Czech striker is considered a potential bargain at £12 million. West Ham fans might recognise Hlozek’s name as he has been linked with the club for nearly 5 years. Although previously expected to join from Daniel Kretinsky’s Sparta Prague, Hlozek ended up at Leverkusen instead.

Leeds United are also believed to be showing interest in Hlozek. Given his connections with fellow Czech mates at West Ham, a move to East London seems an obvious link.

Despite not being a regular starter at Leverkusen, Hlozek’s 32 international caps and his performances at Euro 2024 highlight his skills. Last season, he managed to score seven goals and provided five assists in all competitions, impressive given the strong competition within Leverkusen’s squad.

At his young age, Hlozek could possibley thrive under the guidance of Lopertgui and his robust physicality seems well-suited for the Premier League. A £12 million fee could be quite a deal for a player of Hlozek’s quality and potential, possibly solving West Ham’s long-standing striker dilemma.

It wouldn’t be the first time he’s hailed as the answer to our goalscoring problems.

    Sounds a better bet than Callum Wilson. That would be more than a backstep!!!
    If we’d sign half of the players named by the so called pundits and insiders, we could put out two or three teams every week.
    As it stands we’ve bought one young Brazilian who has to prove himself in European football..

    Hlozek is the Czech mate for Souchek and Coufal we should have bought a few years ago instead of Alex Krall the Czech mate from Sparta Moscow.
