The Hammers could solve their issues at striker this summer as they eye up a move for Armando Broja.
It’s claimed by British media that West Ham are set to bid for Armando Broja.
The 20-year-old’s contract at Chelsea is set to expire at the end of the 2025/26 campaign.
In 38 appearances for Southampton last season, Broja has managed to score nine goals, and create one goal for his teammates.
The 20-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Albania. Broja has also left his mark at the international stage after netting four goals in 14 senior appearances for the Albania national team.
Armando Broja is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Chelsea this summer and the list of suitors in the Albania international continues to grow.
The Hammers have earmarked Chelsea striker as their target, with David Moyes being a ‘huge admirer’ of the player. The report claims that West Ham manager has extensively scouted Broja and is considering a move for the striker.
West Ham are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The 20-year-old provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Moyes’ side.
According to the report, “West Ham United are set to submit a bid for Chelsea striker Armando Broja. Sky Sports reports that the Hammers will put forward an offer of £30m for the Albania international. That is despite the uncertainty surrounding Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia. Granovskaia’s future is up in the air following Bruce Buck’s departure at the end of this month. A decision on Broja will then rest on the shoulders of new owner Todd Boehly and manager Thomas Tuchel.”
