West Ham United manager David Moyes have been handed a big boost in his pursuit of Chelsea striker Armando Broja this summer, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Hammers move expected…
The Irons are expected to formalise their interest in Southampton’s former loanee soon, as backed by Sky journalist Dharmesh Sheth very recently.
Which striker should West Ham sign?
The Albania international’s ability has seemingly turned Moyes’ head as he seeks to end the long-time hunt for a new striker and alternative to Michail Antonio.
The Latest: Taylor shares exciting Broja update…
As per Ryan Taylor of The Daily Express, who’s shared an update on Twitter, a boost for Moyes and co may have emerged in the chase for Broja.
Indeed, according to his information, the 20-year-old is prepared to consider ‘any’ offer from West Ham and a bid is believed to be ‘imminent’.
“Per source, Armando Broja is prepared to consider any offer that arrives from West Ham. Opening bid in region of £30m appears to be imminent. Thomas Tuchel would still prefer to assess striker in pre-season before deciding his future.”
The Verdict: Very exciting…
The colossal 6 foot 3 target man would undoubtedly be a brilliant capture for Moyes.
Still very young and having arguably proved his ability in the top flight already, when at his best, Broja is a very capable striker and could be the answer to rotate with Antonio.
While his form tailed off past February last year (Transfermarkt), the starlet did impress under Ralph Hasenhuttl earlier in the 21/22 campaign, with Saints legend and ex-defender Francis Benali calling him ‘sensational’.
If the east Londoners can get it done, Broja would be an ideal addition.
