Opinion: Moyes must prioritise move to sign £40m Chelsea ace who West Ham players love


West Ham United should be prioritising a summer transfer window deal to sign Chelsea striker Armando Broja above all else.

Hammers boss David Moyes needs to sign an elite striker – someone with youth on their side, and the Chelsea hitman has absolutely everything that we need.

Moyes currently has Michail Antonio as his only centre-forward option at the London Stadium. That clearly isn’t good enough for a club with aspirations of challenging for success both domestically and on the continent.

West Ham need to find a striker who not only works hard and leads the line with aplomb but one who is a very good finisher as well.

There obviously aren’t many of them out there in our price range.

Moyes absolutely must get the striker signing 100% spot on this summer and we think that there is a standout candidate for the Hammers…

The 20-year-old Blues hitman is absolutely perfect for the Hammers.

David Moyes wants to bring him to the London Stadium according to a report from The Evening Standard.

The Evening Standard also claim that the West Ham players have been really impressed when coming up against the Albania international this season.

The Sun journalist Tom Barclay recently told Give Me Sport that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will demand at least £40 million for Broja this summer.

And West Ham should not hesitate to pay that kind of fee to prise him away from Stamford Bridge.

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 31 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.

£40 million sounds like a lot of money for a 20-year-old but Broja literally has it all. And if West Ham pay that amount for the Chelsea striker this summer, we strongly believe that it will end up looking like an absolute bargain.
