Chelsea striker Armando Broja is willing to consider a move to West Ham this summer, according to a new report from the Daily Express.
The centre-forward is David Moyes’ top target for a striker signing this summer and we have reported previously that the club are weighing up a potential bid this summer.
The Express now claims that Broja is now willing to consider a move to the Hammers after spending time on loan at Southampton last season.
He managed to score nine goals in that time, but it remains to be seen if he will be given any kind of chance during his time with the Blues this season.
Broja is said to be keen to play regular football and is willing to move away from Chelsea to get it, if the right offer is made.
Moyes is a big fan of the Albania international so this is absolutely a big one to keep an eye on.
Six goals in 32 league appearances. Not exactly a stand-out strike rate is it? We’ve already got a striker who can go months without scoring!
Have you seen him play Trueiron?
He was brilliant in the six games he scored in I must admit. Something of the Arnoutavic about him. But what happened in the other 26 premier league games he played in? Six goals in a whole season isn’t a great return for a striker. All I will say though is that he is very young and if he improves as he gets older could go on to be a great striker. Just now I’m not sure he’s ready. Might not be a problem if he is back up to Antonio but I thought the idea was always to bring in a 20 plus goals a season man? What happened to that idea?
Broja actually only started 21Prem games last season for his 6 goals. Antonio, by comparison, started 34 for his 10 goals. So Broja has aslight advantage in that respect. Broja was playing in a team of which he knew very little and was learning to play with from scratch. He had very limited experience last season, being only 19/20. He has all the attributes needed for us. I believe we will rue it if we don’t strike now because next season he will be beyond our reach.
