West Ham given Broja boost

West Ham given Broja encouragement as Chelsea chase striker

Chelsea might be willing to let go of Armando Broja as part of their pursuit to sign Victor Osimhen from Napoli. West Ham have a longstanding interest in the striker, having failed in a £30 million transfer bid in July 2022. Although David Moyes shifted his focus to Gianluca Scamacca, the potential availability of Broja could prompt The Hammers to revive their interest.

Albanian international Broja has struggled with knee problems. He suffered a significant setback in 2023 due to an ACL injury and only made his return in September. Recently, he withdrew from international duty with a knee injury, although it’s believed to be unrelated.

Armando Broja could be offered to West Ham

West Ham given Broja boost as  but Chelsea will need to replace him.

Irrespective of the that, signing a player with such a record would be a huge risk. Without a run of games to prove his fitness it’s difficult to imagine any club spending big on Broja given the risks.

It’s also worth noting that Broja was very much a David Moyes pick. Whether Tim Steidten would sanction a move for the player is highly unlikely.

Broja came on late in the game against Manchester City, and the move proved successful. In the 93rd minute, Broja was fouled in the penalty area, resulting spot-kick and securing a vital point.

    As it stands Broja is a big risk and we already have Mubama who is arguably the same as Broja a year ago. Divin needs game time.
