Huge Broja blow

Newcastle are said to be confident of signing Armando Broja from Chelsea this summer, according to a new report from The Northern Echo.

The local paper reports that the Magpies are hoping to sign a new striker in this transfer window after securing Nick Pope, Matt Targett, and Sven Botman.

Newcastle wanted to do a deal to sign Hugo Ekitike from Reims, but are now assessing other options, including Broja.

Chelsea have yet to make a final decision over his future, but we know that the Hammers are interested in signing the Albania international.

Broja is David Moyes’ top target when it comes to signing a new striker, having already signed Nayef Aguerd and Alphonse Areola.

However, it appears that the Magpies feel confident of bringing him in from Chelsea.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel wants to take a look at the striker in pre-season after he spent last season on loan at Southampton, scoring nine goals.

  1. Not worth the money anyway but i supose he’s better than nothing……i can see this transfer window passing again without Dithering Dave signing a striker ….. Moyes needs to be removed from all transfer dealings before its too late !!

  2. We shall see if he even wants to move up north or Chelsea even want to sell him anyway. Why not get nes in along side his mate aguerd?

  3. Shock

  4. We can’t keep waiting on one player in the hope we can sign him . We can’t go another season without a striker so we need to start looking elsewhere pronto !

    • Agree with the dithering Bella, same old GSB and Moyes have a few convenient stories with which they can trot out the lines that they put bids in blah blah blah and sign no one.

  5. I don’t think we are favourites to get Broja or Lingard so I really hope Moyes has got some other targets???

  6. Told you in a previous entry a month ago
    West ham will get one decent signing then put out all the usual false signals of who they’re after , then find an excuse to back off and sign ageing journeymen with no sell on value or loyalty to this club other than what they can screw financially in their twighlight years
    Well played slow hands Moyes and board

  7. ha ha hes off to the toon then…….another one weve lost…..there will be a lot more others too, might be bullet dodged, not worth 30 mill, scored less than okoflex, same age.

  8. Come on guys, please can we calm down with the sensationalist headlines and maintain the perspective that typically holds this site above all others? If I want that kind of headline I’ll go to Hammers News. You’re better than that.

    Newcastle being in for a player we’re interested in is not a “huge blow” – it’s par for the course. Newcastle signing a player when we believe the deal is all but done would be huge…

    I know our board and manager are making it difficult to find anything meaty to write about, and we appreciate your efforts, but you’re trusted for a reason, and this headline is not it. Respect.

    • We are what we are. If u want to go to Hammers news it’s your choice Buddy. Forget headlines, Read the story. You want us to say somwething in a headline by sentences. Sorry. Not us

      • [Sigh]… You’ve misread me, Hugh… I don’t want to go to Hammer News – I stay away from them precisely because they use sensationalist headlines like “HUGE this” and “MASSIVE that”… You’ve always been a class apart from that kind of dross, and because of that I will always read the story. I would’ve said “Competition for Broja” or something like that. Please don’t be defensive – you know I rate you guys and constructive criticism comes from a place of love. I want to help you protect what makes you better than everyone else – that’s all.

        • Not being defensive at all. We have to draw people in, They were once called headlines – they are now called clickbait Buddy. We have very few complaints about headlines but I take it on board 🙂
