David Moyes is all systems go for Armando Broja says journo in the know who claims a West Ham deal has been in making since January.
A Chelsea expert speaking to Hammers News recently claimed the Todd Boehly takeover could be in West Ham’s interests over striker Broja.
West Ham were first linked with a move for Chelsea-owned Broja earlier this season after seriously catching the eye on loan at Southampton (Football Insider).
Sky Sports has reported that Broja is on David Moyes’s list of striker targets for the summer window with a forward being a top priority for West Ham.
And Jamie Redknapp claimed live on Sky Sports last month that he has heard the Chelsea academy product – who he has known since he was 14 – is wanted by West Ham in a permanent move this summer.
Moyes has been searching for the right striker to bring to West Ham ever since selling Sebastien Haller to Ajax 18 months ago.
Yesterday Hammers News reported Football Insider claims that West Ham have made an approach to Chelsea to sign Broja after having him watched closely throughout last season by head of recruitment Rob Newman.
And it appears Moyes is all systems go for Bro says journo in the know who claims a West Ham deal has been in making since January.
Give Me Sport journalist Terry Flewers says a West Ham move for Broja is very much on.

Flewers claims West Ham want to sign Broja from Chelsea in a permanent move. And he says a deal has been in the works since January but is not yet at an advanced stage.
It seems West Ham are merely waiting for Chelsea to make their mind up on Broja’s future with the Hammers ready to pounce.
“Armando Broja to West Ham is ON,” Flewers said alongside a tick emoji.
“West Ham started working on this deal in January. Nothing advanced yet.
“Chelsea have made no decision so it’s difficult for West Ham to do anything more right now.
“Very early stages this summer but it’s a deal West Ham like. Right now, Chelsea have made no decision on the player’s future. One to watch.
“West Ham want on a perm. Very early stages right now.”
It will all hinge on whether Chelsea let Broja go.
West Ham’s players are said to have been really impressed by Broja during the three games against Southampton this season.
That’s according to a report a couple of months ago from The Evening Standard which claims Moyes actually passed up the chance of signing Broja before he left Chelsea to join Southampton on loan.
