The club have recently acquired a knack for signing players from the Czech Republic. Tomas Soucek was first; then the midfielder suggested Vladimir Coufal who has been a big hit. Soucek has now suggested another player for West Ham.

The midfielder has suggested AC Sparta Praha striker Adam Hlozek. The Czech striker may only be 18-years-old but is already impressing at a good level. With four goals and five assists in only six appearances, Hlozek is proving to be a very efficient player.

Currently valued at £10.8 million, Hlozaek could prove to be the most expensive and biggest risk of the three options. Sparta Prague will want to capitalise on his rising value as much as possible, especially because he is so young. The Hammers should be able to afford the striker with the money brought in from Haller’s sale.

Hlozek may be expensive and a risk but the striker has tremendous potential to become a world-beater. After the failure of Haller, it would be surprising to see the Hammers take a punt on another expensive striker but not impossible.

These three strikers would potentially increase West Ham’s firepower immensely. Though it is more likely that the club take a cheaper route and go for AFC Bournemouth’s Joshua King or Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud.
