Report: West Ham want Armando Broja to sign from Chelsea
West Ham want Armando Broja, with The Sun reporting that David Moyes and the Hammers squad have been impressed by the striker this season.
Broja has proved to be an inspired signing for Southampton after his loan move from Chelsea. He has scored nine goals in all competitions, and caused all sorts of problems for opposition defenders.
Francis Benali described his performances as ‘sensational‘ earlier in the campaign. And he is attracting attention.
Reports claimed that Arsenal want Broja, while he could come into the Chelsea fold next season. Unsurprisingly, Southampton want to keep him again next year, potentially on a permanent basis.
But The Sun adds that West Ham want Broja. And it is noted that his displays have impressed Moyes and the Irons players.
Reports have previously suggested that the Blues want £58 million for Broja. But West Ham will surely hope to secure his signature for a lot less given that he has gone a little while without a goal for the Saints.
West Ham want Armando Broja
Broja would have the potential to be an outstanding signing for West Ham, depending on the sort of fee the Hammers have to pay.
He is only 20 years of age. But he has the ability to make something special happen. He is also capable of using his physicality to dominate battles with defenders.
And joining West Ham could perhaps be an attractive proposition for the Albania international. The Hammers do have Michail Antonio. But they do not have a raft of options for Broja to potentially compete with.
Arsenal are also set for an overhaul up front this summer. But moving to the London Stadium will be tempting for a lot of players over the coming months.
