‘No, Please No!’ ‘Would Be A Great Signing’ Fans React As Chelsea Consider Selling West Ham Target

Chelsea could “sanction a departure” for West Ham transfer target Armando Broja, according to Football.London.

The website says the Blues need to raise funds if they want to bid for Napoli’s Victor Osimhen during the January transfer window and Broja is a player they would consider offloading.

It was reported earlier this week that the Hammers could revive their interest in the Albanian international, but fans on X are split on whether it would be a good idea to sign the striker:

There are doubts about Broja’s injury record

David Moyes’ side made a formal bid for the striker in the 2022 summer transfer window but the approach was knocked back by Chelsea, who tied down the forward to a new contract.

However, just a few months later, Broja sustained a serious knee injury, and he has only just returned to playing for the first team.

Are West Ham considering other forwards?

If an approach for Broja is ruled out, the Irons could make an offer for another striker who has also played for Chelsea in the past. RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner is said to be on Tim Steidten’s radar ahead of the January transfer window.

Feyenoord’s  Santiago Gimenez is an alternative that West Ham may look at, with the club having scouted the Mexican international in recent months.
