Liverpool want to bring Czech ‘sensation’ to Anfield for £15m
Posted On April 23, 2021
Liverpool are eyeing up a £15m deal to bring Sparta Prague striker Adam Hlozek to Anfield this summer, according to reports.
The 18-year-old, who has risen through the youth ranks at the Letna Stadium, has already made 78 appearances for the first team, while he has two caps for the Czech Republic.
Hlozek, who made his league debut for Sparta Prague when he was only 16, scored nine goals and contributed nine assists for his team-mates in 39 matches last season.

This season Hlozek has scored five goals and provided eight assists in just 16 matches despite missing a large amount of the season with a broken foot.
And his brilliant development has seen Liverpool take an interest with Football Insider claiming that the Merseysiders ‘would need to pay around £15million, possibly climbing to £20m, for Hlozek’.
The successful signings of Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal at West Ham has ‘alerted Premier League clubs to the potential value of the new generation of Czech stars’.
It is understood that Liverpool scouts ‘rate Hlozek highly and have delivered glowing reports to the club’s recruitment department.’
Meanwhile, Liverpool owner John W Henry apologised to fans on Wednesday over their failed plans to join a European Super League.
“I want to apologise to all the fans and supporters of Liverpool Football Club for the disruption I caused over the last 48 hours,” he said.
“It goes without saying but should be said, the project put forward was never going to stand without the support of the fans.

“No-one ever thought differently in England. Over these 48 hours you were very clear that it would not stand. We heard you. I heard you.”
Henry spoke of the “hurt” being felt and also apologised to manager Jurgen Klopp, his staff and players “and to everyone who works so hard at LFC to make our fans proud”.
“They have absolutely no responsibility for this disruption,” Henry said. “They were the most disrupted and unfairly so. This is what hurts most.
“They love your club and work to make you proud every single day. I know the entire LFC team has the expertise and passion necessary to rebuild trust and help us move forward.
“More than a decade ago when we signed up for the challenges associated with football we dreamed of what you dreamed of and we’ve worked hard to improve your club.
“Our work isn’t done and I hope you understand that even when we make mistakes, we’re trying to work in your club’s best interests.”
