West Ham: ExWHUemployee drops Armando Broja claim

West Ham: ExWHUemployee drops Armando Broja claim -Premier League News

West Ham United insider ExWHUemployee has shared the latest news on the Hammers’ pursuit of in-demand Chelsea striker Armando Broja.

The Lowdown: Broja’s breakthrough

The 20-year-old enjoyed a strong breakout campaign in the Premier League whilst on loan at Southampton this season.

The attacker made 32 league appearances for Saints, adding six goals to his name, nine in all competitions.

However, it was suggested that Broja was not happy during the second half of the season whilst playing for the south-coast side, possibly explaining why he did not score a single goal after February.

The Latest: West Ham’s interest

After Sky Sports reported that West Ham are set to bid £30m for the Chelsea man, fans turned to club insider ExWHUemployee to see whether there was any truth in the rumours.

Taking to Twitter, Ex replied:

“I don’t think a formal offer has been submitted yet but there has been some discussions as there have with the other targets I mentioned but I believe Broja has always been a top choice for Moyes (something we said months ago)”

Hammers fans! Do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Good signing

At just 20-years-old, the Albania international has a lot of years left to prove his worth in the English top-flight.

And compared with positional peers across Europe over the past year, the striker ranks in the 86th percentile for aerials won and in the 82nd percentile for interceptions made (via FB Ref), showing he can be the same dominant physical force up top that Michail Antonio so often is.

Would Broja be a good signing for West Ham?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With sky-high potential, it is easy to see why David Moyes is keen on the player dubbed ‘powerful‘ by journalist Josh Bunting, given his current lack of options behind Antonio.
