Irons consider loan swoop for PL ace

By Dave Langton

West Ham are considering a potential loan swoop to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea this summer.

There is very real interest from the Hammers in securing the Albania international’s signature but there is a feeling that Broja may be more attainable on a loan deal, with the option to buy him at the end of next season.

He has impressed during his time with Southampton, scoring nine goals in all competitions.

Broja is set to return to Chelsea at the end of this season and his future is set to be decided by boss Thomas Tuchel. They cannot sell or buy any players until their takeover is finalised.

West Ham are well aware that the Blues have a number of strikers on their books, with even Romelu Lukaku struggling for minutes this term.

As a result, there is a feeling that Chelsea might be willing to let Broja go on loan again, before selling him the following summer, after a second campaign in the top-flight.

The Irons are casting their net far and wide when it comes to the loan market, as they aim to ensure David Moyes’ budget goes as far as possible.

Moyes, of course, wants a variety of players this summer and a striker is a key target.

  1. On loan with a view to permanent wud be great business. On transfers I watched Phollips and Watkins last night. Phillip’s is dire, actually cannot see what he brings. His first pass is always back, everything he went forward with a pass he gave it away. I just cannot figure out how spending 50m on him will improve us. He is not better than rice or soucek and if you play the 3cofctgem you lose slot of creativity up front. As for Warkins he is just not going to be the striker to score u 20 goals. I am really worried about Moyes if these players are in his thoughts.

  2. Never been a Phillips fan and never would be at 50 mill. Why would they sell Watkins? Prefer we go our own way he is someone else’s idea. We have had time to ponder it’s time to be formulating and dealing. Just don’t dither, get decisive and sort it
