Southampton striker and West Ham United transfer target Armando Broja ‘fits the profile’ of an ‘ideal’ David Moyes forward, journalist Pete O’Rourke has said.
The Lowdown: Broja’s season
The 20-year-old is currently on a season-long loan at the south coast side from his parent club Chelsea.
The attacker’s performances for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team have reportedly caught the eye of West Ham, who now hold a strong interest in securing the Albania international’s signature.
The Latest: O’Rourke’s claim on Broja
O’Rourke has claimed that Broja would be an ‘ideal’ fit for Moyes’ system at the London Stadium.
Speaking with GiveMeSport about the 20-year-old, the journalist proclaimed: “I’m sure if they do decide to sell him, you’ll have a number of clubs – not just West Ham – interested in him.
“I think he would be ideal for West Ham because he could probably play as that lone frontman as well, like Michail Antonio does right now. I think he fits the profile that Moyes likes.”
The Verdict: West Ham need a striker
Having secured European football for next season with a hard-fought point against Manchester City on Sunday, the Irons need to capitalise on their pull in the transfer market, particularly off the back of their excellent Europa League run this term.
With this in mind, West Ham could be an ideal destination for Broja; and with the 20-year-old’s “dangerous” threat in front of goal, the youngster could be a great signing for Moyes if it comes off.
However, with a high level of competition expected by O’Rourke, this probably won’t be an easy transfer to secure for the east London club.
