West Ham set to make concrete offer to sign Adam Hlozek in January

West Ham have ramped up their interest in Sparta Prague forward Adam Hlozek and are reportedly preparing a ‘concrete’ offer to bring him to the club.

According to West Ham Way, which is a website of the reliable Hammers insider ExWHUemployee, the club are set to make a bid that will get the 19-year-old to London in January.

Daniel Kretinsky being the chairman of the Prague outfit will certainly help in getting this deal over the line.

Big news

While Kretinsky hasn’t handed the Hammers a huge kitty to spend in the winter, this is as important a contribution as any.

The club have been looking for a striker to serve as a backup and eventually take over the reins from Michail Antonio since last January.

While the Jamaica international has done well since then, his injury issues are a cause of concern.

Even if he stays fit, rotation is imperative as West Ham have progressed in the Europa League.

Having two strikers pushing for one position is healthy competition that can be seen at every successful club and they are certainly headed in that direction.

The Irons have taken massive strides over the past, but they must continue and Hlozek is the signing they must get over the line.
