West Ham United are eyeing a double deal for AC Milan and Chelsea strikers Divock Origi and Armando Broja this summer if Gianluca Scamacca leaves.
According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport (print edition July 27th, page 14), West Ham have held talks to sign both AC Milan forward Divock Origi and Chelsea ace Armando Broja, with Gianluca Scamacca wanted by Roma in the summer transfer window.
Hammers boss David Moyes is clearly keen to freshen up his centre-forward ranks, with Scamacca being tipped to join Roma.
And Origi and Broja are certainly more suited to the Scot’s system than the Italian is…
West Ham eyeing double deal for international striker duo if Gianluca Scamacca is sold
Gazzetta dello Sport reckon that Scamacca will not be allowed to leave before Moyes has strengthened his attacking ranks in East London.
And the Italian media outlet suggest that Origi and Broja are two strikers the Scot wants to bring in, with the Hammers holding talks with both players.
However, it is stated that talks between West Ham, Milan and Chelsea have been unsuccessful so far.
If deals can be done for the Belgian and Albanian though, I think they’d be very good signings indeed for us. They are both well capable of running the channels and put in a real shift every time they play.
Origi and Broja are very strong when playing with their back to goal and would provide a proper outlet for our defence when we’re under the cosh.
I love Scamacca and rate him very highly, but he will never succeed at West Ham if David Moyes is not prepared to change his system.
So selling the Italian to Roma and bringing in Origi and Broja would be the ideal scenario for all parties concerned in my opinion.
