Hlozek to leave Leverkusen?

Adam Hlozek could be heading for the exit door at Bayer Leverkusen in search of more playing time elsewhere.

Adam Hlozek made 36 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen in the 2023/24 season, but only 11 of them were starts.

In an interview with Kicker, Bayer Leverkusen managing director for sport Simon Rolfes admits that the 21-year-old needs to play more to take the next step in his development.

However, the Bayer 04 boss deliberately left it open whether that next step will be taken at Leverkusen or somewhere else.

"It is important for him to play a more prominent role in the future. That will be the next step in his development," said Rolfes.

A loan move within the Bundesliga could be an option, with Hlozek making it clear he wants to stay in Germany.

"I think the Bundesliga suits me and I definitely want to stay in Germany," the Czech international said at a pre-Euro 2024 press conference.

"The Euro is an opportunity for everyone and maybe there will be options."
