Hammers’ eye Sparta Prague striker option

The Athletic reports that West Ham already have a back-up for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham in case they cannot convince the Blues to sell.

A deal for Abraham is likely to be a loan, with manager David Moyes revealing that a deal of over £40m would be too rich for the Irons’ blood.

As a result. The Athletic reports that there is interest in the 18-year-old forward Adam Hlozek, who plays for Sparta Prague.

A deal to sign the teenager may be helped by the fact that he has the same agent as Tomas Soucek, who also moved to the club from the Czech league, though that was Slavia rather than Sparta.

Hlozek has scored 11 goals in 17 appearances thus far in the league this season, and can play as both a left winger and a centre-forward.

At the age of 18, he has already made 83 appearances for Sparta, along with two senior caps for the Czech Republic.

  1. First it was Sima,then Hlosek,then Sima again and now it’s back to Hlosek.Well seeing as we have no strikers whatsoever,why don’t we just get both ?

  2. An insult to call Hlosek a back up to Abraham, he is in a totally different league, this kid is going places and would really excite Hammers fans. Hlosek and Arnie for me with Lingard and we are in great shape.

    • That’s my thoughts too …

    • Arnie? The 32 year old ex forward currently earning almost £200,000 per week in China. The same Arnie who forced his exit from West Ham in acrimonious circumstances? The same Arnie who’s ego won’t let him play second fiddle to anyone? The same Arnie with the poisonous, greedy agent/brother who left us without a trace of remorse to chase money in a third class footballing league? Hmm.

      • Yes the same Arnie that the players, the manager and fans want back. He is a leader. I left jobs in my career for more money which is basically what he did so I would not hold that against him. If I was asked to sign Arnie for free or Abraham for 30-40m I would not think, Arnie is a totally different league to Abraham as a footballer.

        • I’d blame him for the dressing room discontent he caused though John

          • I accept that and 100% agree. I would love to see him back, it would be like Teves coming back for a lot of us.

        • I don’t want Arnie back. Arnie comes with baggage, his brother and an attitude that’s different to our current squad – if it’s all about him ,then he’s fine but he’s not a great team player. I’d prefer Sima and Hlosek and look to the future.

        • Been doing a bit of survey work have you? Because you want him back doesn’t mean everybody does. I think he’ll completely change the vibe of the team for the worse. How can you say the players and the fans want him back?

  3. Breaking News: Carlton Cole says he could help out his old team. Lol
