West Ham will be ‘offered the chance’ to sign Chelsea misfit Armando Broja this summer

West Ham will be 'offered the chance' to sign Chelsea misfit Armando Broja this summer

West Ham United could revive their interest in Chelsea striker Armando Broja amid plans to sign a striker this summer.

According to the Mirror, the Hammers will be “offered a chance” to sign the Albanian striker with new manager Julen Lopetegui looking to revamp the squad.

The 22-year-old has endured a turbulent 2023/24 campaign. He spent the first half of the season struggling for playing time at Chelsea before earning a loan move to Fulham in January.

However, his fortunes only went from bad to worse at Craven Cottage. He barely kicked a ball for Marco Silva’s side, falling behind Rodrigo Muniz and Raul Jimenez in the pecking order.

Broja has netted just three times in 45 appearances across all competitions over the past two seasons, and Chelsea will be more than happy to get him off their payroll.

Despite his recent struggles, Broja still has a couple of admirers in the Premier League, including West Ham, who may be tempted to return for his signature this summer.

This isn’t the first time the Hammers have explored the possibility of signing Broja. They considered him during the January transfer window but ultimately decided against pursuing a deal.

However, West Ham could now get a chance to land the striker in a cut-price deal, with Chelsea seemingly desperate to cut him loose.

The Blues are gearing up for another summer exodus, with a handful of academy stars potentially heading for the Stamford Bridge exit.

They are eager to sign a world-class striker this summer, and Broja’s exit should create space in the squad for a big-money acquisition.

Michail Antonio led the line for West Ham toward the end of the season, but the Jamaican could leave the club when his contract runs out this summer.

Considering West Ham’s summer plans have been dealt a major blow with Lucas Paqueta facing a potential ban, Broja could be a decent cut-price addition for the Hammers this summer.
