Despite his tender age, Hlozek already looks more than ready to take a step up to a higher quality league.
It’s important to bear in mind that the Czech league is not one of the strongest by any means. It is ranked as 17th in Europe according to the UEFA coefficients, which puts it below Cyprus in the standings.
But all Hlozek can do is impress when given the chance and he has certainly been doing that. For any player to have secured 60 starts and scored 18 goals in any senior league prior to their 19th birthday is no mean feat.
He is also versatile, capable of playing centrally or in wide areas across the front line. Per Transfermarkt, Hlozek has 34 appearances for Sparta Prague on the left, 23 through the middle and 21 on the right.
When he made his debut he had only turned 16 a few months earlier, and he went on to make 14 starts before that season was out.
The young man has made a serious impact this season though, despite missing 14 matches thanks to a metatarsal fracture.
Hlozek is currently third in the Czech league’s combined standings for goals and assists, and on a per 90 minutes played basis, he is top of the tree (per FBRef).
