THE LOWDOWN: STRIKER SEARCH

Gunners fans will be hoping that technical director Edu Gaspar wastes little time addressing their issues up front.

No striker in the Arsenal squad scored more than five goals in the Premier League this past season.

With both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah on expiring contracts this summer, there is indeed desperation for Mikel Arteta to bring in one or two strikers this summer who can fire the club on to new heights next season.

According to reports, the Gunners are keeping track on one of Europe’s hottest forward prodigies, who looks to be on the move this summer.

THE LATEST: BIG ADMIRERS

According to a report from The Athletic, Arsenal are big admirers of Sparta Prague and Czech Republic international Hlozek.

The report claims that they could target a younger striker if they pursue two signings in that position this summer.

And one of the players on their radar is the 19-year-old who Arsenal are reportedly keen on.

However, reports are emerging that the talented young hitman could well be on the move to German outfit Bayer Leverkusen in the coming weeks.

THE VERDICT: LEVERKUSEN GOOD CAREER MOVE

The teenager could be a real star going by his form this season and recent acclaim through the media.

Pundit and former Leeds United striker Noel Whelan has called him a potential “no-brainer” signing for Premier League clubs and the “stand-out” at Sparta – impressive tags for such a young player (Football Insider).

Hlozek’s glowing reputation could only grow larger with the only gamble on Arteta’s part being whether he can hack it in England.

The £17.1m-rated forward has enjoyed an impressive campaign through his attacking contributions, hitting 12 goals and laying on 15 assists from 47 outings in all competitions, meaning he is certainly ready to take the next step in his career.

However, whether that’s at Arsenal is unclear and could turn out to be a big risk for both parties, so him moving to a club capable of providing ample game-time and unique development at Leverkusen looks a very good career move for the 19-year-old.
