West Ham main target rules out loan exit to PL rivals, meeting this week
Armando Broja will meet Chelsea owner Todd Boehly this week to discuss his future after West Ham made contact over a transfer, according to the Standard.
The Albania international enjoyed an excellent loan spell at Southampton in the 2021/22 season and has sparked interest from Hammers and Everton in a potential deal this summer, with the two clubs making formal contact this week.
Now Chelsea’s new owner Boehly is set to speak with the striker about his future this week according to Standard [July 5]with Thomas Tuchel keen to save him for pre-season to take a closer look.
Newcastle have had their interest turned down as the player is not interested in another loan move, prioritizing a permanent move if he cannot secure an important role at Stamford Bridge.
Everton have made contact with a potential £30m transfer for the 20-year-old and West Ham are considering matching the offer, having made him their number one target for a striker signing.
While the transfer market has gone pretty well so far for West Ham, they need an answer from Chelsea on whether this deal is successful or not and they need it fast.
Moyes has made him the priority target of the attack but it’s only been so long the club should be willing to wait for a deal to be done before it starts to affect them negatively.
At some point a decision will have to be made on whether to continue with the deal or move on to other targets or else the club may miss it and other targets because they waited too long to get a deal. answer they didn’t want to hear. .
It may make more sense for the club to start negotiating for other targets just in case, then when they get a response from Broja and Chelsea they can choose to change tact.
But this meeting is a step in the right direction for everyone involved and I hope that we and the club will have more information on how it will go.
