West Ham should make a late move to sign Chelsea striker Armando Broja before Thursday’s deadline.
The Hammers are looking to sign a new striker, and they have shown keen interest in signing Broja this month.
Only a couple of weeks ago, it was reported that West Ham need to pay around £50m to sign Broja who is on £78k-per-week deal at the club.
The Blues are willing to reduce their asking price to £40m for the 22-year-old striker, and they are even willing to let him go out if any club assures them of signing him permanently at the end of the season.
Fulham have made a loan bid for Broja already. However, it doesn’t have any clause of signing him permanently at the end of the season.
West Ham must seize this opportunity and make an attractive offer to land him. David Moyes badly needs to bolster their forward department and Broja would be a cracking signing for them.
He may not have exceeded expectations at Chelsea, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be a roaring success elsewhere. He is a natural finisher whose best years lie ahead of him.
West Ham won’t have any problems matching his wages, and the least they can do is attempt to sign him by submitting a better offer.
Michail Antonio has been a great servant for the Hammers over the years, but it is really a sad state that the club hasn’t been able to replace him properly, nor they have been able to sign a proper back-up.
Jarrod Bowen has done well in the false nine role, but he is better used elsewhere. Broja is a proper number nine. The fact that Chelsea are ready to do business should tempt West Ham into making a late move for him, especially when Fulham have made a bid already.
