The door will surely soon be wide open for West Ham to sign Armando Broja with Chelsea closing in on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Chelsea and Barcelona are in positive and direct contact to finally complete the Aubameyang deal in the next few hours.

And Gianluca Scamacca’s absence for West Ham last night proved that David Moyes could really do with signing another centre-forward.

The Italian missed the game against Tottenham with a virus and it once again left David Moyes with only one centre-forward option.

We think that has to change today, if West Ham are to enjoy a successful 2022/23 campaign.

Broja door open for West Ham

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Chelsea are closing in on a deal to bring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Stamford Bridge from Barcelona for around £10 million, with Marcos Alonso heading in the opposite direction.

Let’s hope that Auba does join Chelsea, because then David Moyes will surely be able to bring Broja to the London Stadium.

We would love the 20-year-old Chelsea ace at the club.

He has been described as an ‘exceptional’ striker by The Athletic. Meanwhile, One Football label him as ‘lethal’. And Albania coach Sergio Porrini called him ‘devastating’.

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.

The Chelsea 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.

The striker absolutely tore the Hammers apart last season, bagging one goal and one assist in three appearances against us. He gave our defenders nightmares and was a total menace to our back line during all three clashes.

It’s easy to forget at times that the Albania international is just 20-years-old-old! It’s not often that someone of that age bags nine goals in a season.

He really does seem to be a very special talent and could be available for around £30 million this summer (The Athletic).

And we’d absolutely love it if West Ham manage to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea before the transfer window slams shut.
