West Ham players really impressed by Southampton ace Armando Broja, David Moyes rejected chance to sign him

West Ham players have been really impressed by Armando Broja during the three games we’ve played against Southampton this season.

That’s according to a report from The Evening Standard who claims that Moyes actually passed up the chance of signing Broja before he left Chelsea to join Southampton on loan.

The 20-year-old has proven to be an absolutely sensational addition for the Saints.

Broja, a 10-capped Albania international, has proven that he is a striker who is well capable of succeeding at the very highest level.

The Chelsea owned ace is strong, quick and is a really, really good finisher.

And it seems as though the Hammers players have been mightily impressed by the 20-year-old striker this season.

Southampton ace Broja has impressed the West Ham players

The Evening Standard claims that the Hammers squad have been really taken back by just how good Broja is this season.

It is also alleged that David Moyes opted against signing the Albanian before he moved to St Mary’s in the summer. How frustrating is that?!

It is his all around game that has been the most impressive thing about him though. The way in which he holds up the ball with his back to goal and brings others into play has been truly magnificent to watch.

The Hammers actually haven’t been able to handle the Saints hitman this season.

Broja is the kind of striker who would excel in West Ham’s system.

Why Moyes passed up on him is anyone’s guess.

If the Evening Standard are to be believed though, the Scot may well have the West Ham player demanding that he brings the 20-year-old to the London Stadium in the summer.

Whether Chelsea would be open to doing business with us remains to be seen though.
