West Ham want to sign Armando Broja on loan from Chelsea in the summer before committing to a permanent deal.
That’s according to a report from club insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that David Moyes is very keen to bring the talented 20-year-old Chelsea hitman to the London Stadium in the summer.

In fact, it is suggested that the interest from the Hammers in signing Broja is ‘very real’ indeed.
Moyes needs to bring a top-class centre-forward to the London Stadium as a matter of urgency in the summer transfer window.
The Daily Mail claimed a couple of days ago that the powerful striker, who is currently on loan with Southampton, is West Ham’s number one summer transfer target.
However, it appears as though a permanent deal to sign the Albania international might prove difficult for the Hammers…
West Ham could sign Broja but loan deal more likely
High-level club insiders Claret and Hugh reckon that the Hammers want to sign the 20-year-old front-man on a season-long loan with an option to buy him next year.
A classic David Sullivan favourite!
In all fairness though, we’d take that kind of deal if it means that Broja comes to West Ham this summer. The 20-year-old is a truly exceptional talent.
Broja has spent this season on loan from Chelsea at Southampton and has 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 has bagged an impressive nine goals and one assist in 36 games for Southampton this season (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.
Let’s just hope that West Ham manage to sign Broja this summer, even if it is just a loan deal.
