In a recent report, Football.london stated that West Ham United have planned to make a £30M bid for Chelsea forward Armando Broja. It is understood that Thomas Tuchel would play a huge role in determining the forward’s future amid interests from West Ham and Napoli.
Broja’s Impressive Numbers In The Premier League
Broja managed to pique interest from various clubs after his impressive performances while on loan at the St. Mary’s Stadium last season, producing a handful of influential displays for the Saints. He has scored nine goals and created one assist over 38 appearances for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side in the last campaign across all fronts.
The Albanian talent proved his worth in being a decent attacker after averaging 1.4 shots and 1.0 dribbles per game in Premier League football. However, he was sloppy while distributing possession from the midfield, as evident by his pass completion rate of 61.4% in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Is It A Good Move From West Ham United Boss David Moyes?
Broja excels at creating space for himself to get a few shots on the opposition’s goal. He can even use his quickness to make some clever turns inside the penalty box and make some decent runs with the ball in the final third.
The Albania international is a decent finisher but needs to improve on his productivity in the attacking third while linking up with his teammates when on the attacking front.
Still, his strengths outweigh his weaknesses and he can still work on them over the coming seasons. So the Hammers are wise in identifying him as a potential target and bringing him to the London Stadium this summer.
The Chelsea forward could serve as a decent cover to Michail Antonio at the East London club. The 20-year-old has got a very bright future ahead of him which makes him a fine choice for David Moyes to consider during this summer transfer window. A bid worth £30 million is a justified offer for Broja, and Tuchel would be wise to cash in on him as it’s a decent deal for everyone involved.
