West Ham United and manager David Moyes are ‘also’ set to bid for a ‘really, really exciting’ player, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Irons keep busy…
After signing both Nayef Aguerd from Rennes and sealing goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on a permanent deal from Paris-Saint Germain, it is reliably believed that the Irons will keep pushing in the transfer market.
Which forward do West Ham need to sign?
The east Londoners must strengthen to keep pace with England’s best sides and Moyes, it is claimed, now wants to bolster his attacking options first and foremost.
The Latest: West Ham ‘also’ set for ‘exciting’ player bid…
Club owners GSB and head of recruitment Rob Newman, according to reports, are set to make a move for Jesse Lingard.
However, as per journalist Ryan Taylor of The Daily Express, a West Ham ‘bid’ for Chelsea striker Armando Broja, who Gary Neville called a ‘really, really exciting‘ player, is ‘also on agenda’ for Moyes.
The Verdict: Push for deal?
The 20-year-old enjoyed a brilliant loan spell at Southampton over-all last season with Saints legend Francis Benali branding him ‘sensational’.
Standing at a colossal 6 foot 3, Broja, possesses a physicality tailor-made for top flight football and could prove to be a different outlet for West Ham in the attacking areas.
The Hammers have arguably been without a traditional ‘target man’ since club-record signing Sebastien Haller left Rush Green and we believe Albania’s international starlet could be an ideal, long overdue replacement.
