West Ham are currently in advanced talks to sign Chelsea attacker Armando Broja, while they are waiting for a reaction from Lille over the potential signing of midfielder Amadou Onana.
The 20-year-old striker Broja, who spent last year on loan with Southampton and played 38 games across all competitions, has been the subject of a transfer offer from the Hammers to Chelsea in the amount of £30 million.
It is said that West Ham is willing to pay the full sum of £25 million in order to acquire the Albanian international. The teams continue to negotiate, and the process has reached a more advanced stage at this point.
Broja has returned from Chelsea’s pre-season tour of the United States, where he received an injury, and he will receive treatment for it home in England. It is not considered to be a major issue.
This summer, numerous Premier League clubs, including Everton, Newcastle, and Southampton, have expressed interest in acquiring Broja as a player. West Ham is one of those clubs.
West Ham are still waiting for a response from Lille after they submitted an improved, third offer for Amadou Onana. David Moyes is also looking for a boost in midfield, and West Ham are looking to get Onana.
The most recent offer is said to be around £32.3 million (38 million euros), in addition to any add-ons that Lille are seriously considering.
They brought Onana, who is now 20 years old and came from Hamburg for €7 million last summer, and he is a Belgium international who played in Ligue 1 for France last year, making 11 starts and 21 substitute appearances. They stand to make a large profit on him.
While all is going on, West Ham is continuing to talk with Sassuolo about the possibility of acquiring striker Gianluca Scamacca.
According to the chief executive officer of Sassuolo, David Moyes’ team has reportedly made a bid of €40 million (about £33.9 million) with add-ons.
The possibility of acquiring Broja and Scamacca through free agency has not been dismissed.
Jesse Lingard’s decision is also being anticipated by the Hammers at this time.
There is now an offer on the table for the midfielder, and it is anticipated that he will make an announcement on his next club very soon.
Lingard is now a free agent following the expiration of the contract he had with Manchester United on June 30.
