Opinion: West Ham sealing £90 million double signing from Chelsea would be a real statement

West Ham boss David Moyes should be prioritising moves to sign Chelsea duo Armando Broja and Conor Gallagher in the summer transfer window.

Two key areas where the Hammers need to strengthen before the start of next season are the centre-forward and central midfield departments.

And two Chelsea players are apparently on Moyes’s radar ahead of the opening of the summer transfer window.

Signing Blues hitman Armando Broja is the West Ham manager’s number one priority this summer according to a report from The Daily Mail. He could cost as much as £40 million (The Sun).

Meanwhile, the Scot is also interested in bringing Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher to the London Stadium from Stamford Bridge (ExWHUemployee via The West Ham Way podcast).

Thomas Tuchel will demand around £50 million for the 22-year-old’s signature according to Goal.

Moyes really should go all out to sign both players this summer. The Blues duo would take the Hammers to a whole new level entirely…

West Ham making double Chelsea signing this summer would be huge statement

£90 million for the two players sounds like a lot of money but they would be totally worth it considering their quality.

Don’t forget, Broja is 20 and Gallagher is 22 as well, so they’ve both got 12-14 years left playing ahead of them.

We believe that Broja would be a sensational addition for the Hammers.

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.

Meanwhile, Gallagher has been lighting it up during his loan spell with Crystal Palace this season.

Gallagher has bagged eight goals and three assists in 33 Premier League games for Palace (Transfermarkt).

During those appearances, the 22-year-old has averaged 2.4 tackles, 1.7 dribbles and 1.3 key passes per game (Who Scored).

He has incredible energy, drive, passion, determination and commitment to the cause. On top of all that as well, Gallagher is incredibly gifted from a technical perspective.

The Chelsea ace would be the ideal accompaniment to Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek in the middle of the park.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has refused to rule out both players leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.

And West Ham signing Gallagher and Broja from Chelsea in the summer transfer window would be incredibly exciting.
