Liverpool in pole position to sign 18-year-old Fortuna Liga striker

The Merseyside giants are ready to intensify their pursuit of Sparta Prague centre-forward Adam Hlozek in the ongoing summer transfer window. A product of the Sparta Prague youth academy, Adam made his first-team debut back in 2018 at the age of only 16 and has gradually grown into a first-team regular with the Czech giants.

To date, Hlozek has played 85 senior games for the club, scoring 28 goals and setting up 21 more. 2020/21 was one of his best in his short career as the young forward found the back of the net on 15 occasions and assisted nine more goals for his teammates from only 23 games across all tournaments.

The 18-year-old centre-forward’s form saw him break into the Czech Republic national team in September last year and has since gone on to make four appearances for the side. Adam’s rapid rise to prominence in his homeland has now alerted several teams around Europe, with Liverpool being at the forefront of the interest in the 18-year-old.

Liverpool are in the market for attacking reinforcements following a season that saw the likes of Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane not perform at the expected level.

Throw in the doubts surrounding the futures of the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Takumi Minamino as well as Divock Origi, it only makes sense that Jurgen Klopp & co. stock up their options in the final third.

To that end, they have been linked with several footballers like Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic and Alexander Isak of Real Sociedad, among others. Now, Adam has also emerged as a viable target for the Reds, with Liverpool now ready to ramp up their pursuit of the Czech Republic international.
