West Ham have not ruled out a move for both Chelsea’s Armando Broja and Blackburn’s Ben Brereton-Diaz.
The pair are high on David Moyes wish list with the Chelsea man priced at around £30 million and Brereton believed to be available for around half of that.
The major problem in the case of Broja is that he has been Chelsea-mad since childhood and desperate to remain at Stamford Bridge.
And we are told by a source close to the player that he sees the club’s tour of America as his last big chance to impress Thomas Suchel.
West Ham’s only rivals are believed to be Napoli although our source claims that should he move on we are favourites with discussions between the two clubs standing around the £30 million.
Meanwhile the Irons are continuing to pursue the Blackburn player with Rovers understood to be ready to accept a fee in the region of £12 million to £15 million.
They want to get the deal signed as soon as possible and it is now a case of manager David Moyes making his mind up on the double swoop.
