West Ham United‘s transfer window is in full swing as they look to reshape their attack under new manager Julen Lopetegui. According to the Daily Mirror, Chelsea forward Armando Broja has emerged as a potential target.

Technical director Tim Steidten is collaborating with Lopetegui to remake the squad following David Moyes’ exit. Defensive reinforcements are already on the horizon with Fabricio Bruno (Flamengo) nearing a transfer, while a move for Wolves’ Max Kilman is also being explored (up to £45 million).

West Ham’s need for attacking reinforcements stems from a multitude of factors. The situation surrounding Lucas Paqueta’s betting charges, Michail Antonio’s ageing legs, and potential departures of Ings and Cornet necessitate addressing this area.

The 22-year-old Albanian forward has Premier League experience (21 appearances, 1 goal) despite battling injuries. While not a finished product, Broja is seen as a coachable talent with room for growth. However, Lopetegui might not be entirely sold on him yet.

West Ham faces a dilemma. Broja offers long-term potential and could increase in value if he avoids injuries. However, the club might prioritise a more established goalscorer who can deliver immediate results. Ultimately, the decision on Broja will depend on West Ham’s overall transfer budget and their long-term vision for the attack.

With Lopetegui at the wheel and Steidten driving the transfer strategy, West Ham is in the midst of a significant squad overhaul. The potential signing of Broja highlights their focus on revamping their attack, but they must carefully weigh the options to ensure they make the right choices for the club’s future.

    He spent the second half of the last season on loan at Fulham. And most of that was warming the bench. 8 appearances and 0 goals. OK as a back up at best but not as a first choice striker.

    Broja hahahahahahahahaha I’ve fallen off my chair laughing. Not even good enough for Fulham!
    Did you pull this out of your ass or are you still living in ‘West Ham failure signings of the past’ mode?
    We need JLo to completely delete our memory files of all this nonsense or we might as well have stayed at Upton Park with Judas Bilic in charge. This side of The West Ham Way needs deleting from the trashdustbind forever.

    These are ‘names’ from ‘name’ clubs who know the slug’s trusted agents will be creaming themselves about selling rubbish to West Ham.
    I bet Salthouse is telling the slug Broga could be the new Lookman – a late, very late, developer? hahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Broja ??? it doesn’t get any better, does it ? Nowhere near good enough. Mind you, only West Ham would sign a striker that doesn’t score goals. As Deathblow says, smells of Sullivan doing his “three for a quid’” bargain basement crap. As TC said, until Sullivan slings his hook club will never progress.

    Why do we need this donkey

  • Bournehammer says:

    Why get wound up by an obviously nonsense story from a low rent paper.
    It’s clearly b****cks.

  • Dave says:

    The most overrated non striker never scores, no thanks

  • Jeeps says:

    Broja history is not good.
    Chelsea are looking to offload and whilst Moyes was associated with Gallagher and Broja the latter is definitely not needed.
    With numerous strikers whu are being associated with he looks the least likely.
    If Antonio was ok with being a regular sub and playing for last 20 minutes, either defence or striker, his bully boy tactics against tired legs could be an asset.
    Agree this article has got to be a windup.
