Chelsea transfer stance as West Ham submit two offers for £30m Broja | Soccer | sport
Chelsea are biding their time to determine where Armando Broja’s future lies. The striker is of keen interest to many top European sides, although West Ham are doing everything they can to ensure they are front-runners if he is put up for sale by their London rivals.
Broja enjoyed a successful campaign on loan at Southampton last term, scoring six appearances in 31 and impressing with the way he came to life in the Premier League. So much so that some felt that the Albanian striker could fit perfectly into the heart of Chelsea’s attack for the next campaign.
After loaning out Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan to try and regain some form, Thomas Tuchel opted to prioritize the signing of Raheem Sterling from Manchester City to bolster his front line. And there have been suggestions that a decision on Broja’s future has yet to be made, with West Ham trying to get the ball rolling by submitting a bid for the 20-year-old.
According fabrice romano, the Hammers have offered Chelsea £30m for Broja, while also submitting a £32m offer for central midfielder Amadou Onano from Lille. It remains to be seen whether either offer is accepted and whether David Moyes’ opening offer can spark a bidding war for Broja.
