Armando Broja is willing to join West Ham United from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from The Express who claim that the 20-year-old Chelsea ace is firmly on the Hammers’ radar this summer.

Bringing a top-class striker to the London Stadium before the start of the new season will be of paramount importance for David Moyes.
Highly-respected journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claimed yesterday that West Ham’s main focus is to sign Broja now, after having completed a deal to bring Nayef Aguerd to East London from Rennes.
If Broja followed Aguerd through the door at the London Stadium, the Hammers fans would start to get really excited.
Bringing in some genuine competition for Michail Antonio will be key to our hopes of achieving success on all fronts next season. And it seems as though we could be close to making that happen…
Report outlines Armando Broja stance on the chance to join West Ham
The Express claims that the Albania international is willing to discuss terms with the Hammers, should Chelsea agree to sell him to their London rivals.
And what an incredible signing the youngster would be for us.
The Chelsea ace is one of the most talented young forwards on the planet at the moment and he could genuinely take us to a new level entirely next season.
Broja spent last season on loan from Chelsea at Southampton and he massively impressed.
The Albanian 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. Broja bagged nine goals and one assist in 36 games for Southampton last term (Transfermarkt).
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.
He has been described as an ‘exceptional’ striker by The Athletic.
Broja seems to be ideally suited to West Ham and considering the way in which he stretches the opposition with tireless runs into the channels, it’s easy to see why Moyes wants to sign him.
Di Marzio has claimed that fee needed to sign the 20-year-old could be around £25-30 million. That sounds like great value to us.
And with Broja allegedly willing to join West Ham, this should be a fairly easy one to get over the line.
It should be our number one priority and it is by all accounts. Hopefully Broja does join West Ham sooner rather than later.
