Hlozek is reportedly a target and the young Czech sensation was recently viewed as a potential replacement for one of the best strikers in the world.
Dortmund wanted to sign Arsenal-linked Adam Hlozek to replace Erling Haaland
Erling Haaland was arguably the hottest property in world football ahead of the summer transfer window. Every top club in the world wanted to sign him, and his numbers tell you why.
The Norwegian, in 89 appearances for Borussia Dortmund, scored 86 goals and provided 23 assists. That is an outrageous return for any striker, let alone someone who’s still only 21 years old.
It’s almost impossible to replace Haaland but Dortmund viewed Hlozek as an option just a month ago, according to BILD. The teenager scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists in the recently concluded campaign, and he has the potential to become a top forward in the coming years.
Dortmund may yet go for him in the coming days, but as Haaland’s replacement, they went and signed RB Salzburg star Karim Adeyemi, who is another fantastic young striker. However, thankfully for Arsenal, Hlozek is still available.
Hlozek would be brilliant for the Gunners
Arsenal will have to sign an accomplished centre-forward this summer, there’s no debate on that front. They need someone who will guarantee them 20 or more goals a season to have any chance of reaching the next level.
As a second-choice striker, however, Arsenal are right to look at a young player with a ton of potential. Hlozek is just that guy and his performances for Sparta Prague have been absolutely incredible.
The 19-year-old would fit in really well in Arsenal’s young squad as well. Alongside fellow wonderkids Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, he could form a deadly partnership in the future for the Gunners, and if he’s available this summer, Arteta and Edu really should make a move to sign him.
However, if Nketiah agrees to extend his stay at the Emirates, Arsenal may well decide against signing Hlozek or anyone else of his profile.
