West Ham ‘close to Armando Broja signing’ – and three more could follow soon

West Ham are trying to pulling off a sensational trio of moves along with Armando Broja.

The Hammers are looking to continue their fine era under David Moyes, with Chelsea’s young striker looking set to come in on a permanent switch. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “West Ham are now close to signing Armando Broja. Talks progressing with Chelsea, West Ham insist for a permanent deal after the official offer is submitted but it’s up to the Blues. Broja has agreed personal terms with West Ham – all parties are getting closer.”

The towering forward had been linked to Everton and Newcastle but it appears that it’s the Irons that have come in and swooped for a move. The Standard report that Broja has been David Moyes’ number one target all summer and even though Chelsea had wanted to provide him with another loan spell, it is reported that a £30million bid has been made and personal terms already accepted.

The Premier League side made a new bid for the Lille midfielder worth around £30million plus add-ons, despite interest from Nottingham Forest. While they are yet to receive a firm response, the Premier League side feel that should be enough to secure a deal.
