Broja wants West Ham transfer

Chelsea are reportedly fighting to keep Armando Broja amid interest from West Ham United this summer.

The Albanian spent the previous campaign on loan with Southampton where he registered nine goals and one assist.

It was anticipated that he would break into Thomas Tuchel's plans next term, but he appears keen on a permanent exit.

Tuchel has publicly denied that Broja will leave the club, but Romano has confirmed that they are speaking with West Ham.

The Hammers are keen on pursuing the 20-year-old on a permanent deal worth £35m, and may not insert a buy-back option.

This is something which Chelsea may not prefer, but Broja could yet push for an exit as he won't be assured regular minutes.

Raheem Sterling, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner are all ahead of him in the pecking order for the centre-forward position.

In comparison, Broja only has competition from Michail Antonio at West Ham, and he could be a leading star for them.
