Hammers may snap up striker

West Ham could do a deal to bring striker Adam Hlozek into the club if Daniel Kretinsky completes his purchase of a stake in the club.

The Hammers, of course, only have one senior striker at the club, with Mikey Antonio tasked with scoring the goals to keep the Irons in the top four.

Kretinsky, of course, owns a 40 per cent stake in Sparta Prague, for whom Hlozek plays.

The young striker is just 19 and has been with Sparta since 2019, scoring 32 goals and registering 29 assists in 105 appearances.

He can play up front and on both wings and enjoyed a prolific campaign last term, netting 15 times in 19 league games, and he already has four goals and seven assists in 13 games this term.

Hlozek is also a Czech Republic international with 12 caps to his name, and Exwhufc employee is the latest of many to believe a swoop for him could make sense, especially if Kretinsky does end up on the board.

Speaking on his podcast, as per Hammers News, he said: “Daniel Kretinsky is a 40% shareholder at Sparta Prague. They’ve got a forward called Hlozek and he’s highly rated. There’s a strong chance the striker signing could be him.”
