Chelsea expert claims Todd Boehly takeover could be in West Ham’s interests


A Chelsea expert speaking to Hammers News claims the Todd Boehly takeover could be in West Ham’s interests over striker Armando Broja.

West Ham were first linked with a move for Chelsea-owned Broja earlier this season after seriously catching the eye on loan at Southampton (Football Insider).

Hammers News then spoke to Blues expert Nathaniel Kay from the Chelsea Chronicle who claimed there would be a ‘strong possibility’ Broja could be sold to West Ham this summer.

Last week Sky Sports reported that Broja is on David Moyes’s list of striker targets for the summer window with a forward being a top priority for West Ham.

And Jamie Redknapp claimed live on Sky Sports this week that he has heard the Chelsea academy product – who he has known since he was 14 – is wanted by West Ham in a permanent move this summer.

Hammers News has now spoken to Chelsea Chronicle’s Kay for an update on the Broja situation.

Doubt has been cast on the Boehly takeover after Roman Abramovich reportedly changed his stance over the Government’s sale structure sparking concerns the Blues could ‘go under’ (Daily Mail).

Ironically billionaire Boehly was touted for a West Ham takeover in the past.

Chelsea fans won’t be the only ones desperately hoping the deal goes through, though.

Because according to our Chelsea expert Kay, it could very much work in West Ham’s favour.

“It’s pretty difficult to predict anything in terms of transfers right now, but I’d lean towards him (Broja) being sold,” Chelsea Chronicle’s Kay told Hammers News.

“There’s definitely interest in him from England and reportedly from abroad as well, so Chelsea could easily make a profit on their academy player. 

“As Todd Boehly isn’t expected to spend as much as Abramovich, any additional money coming into the club would be welcomed.

“It largely depends what happens to (Romelu) Lukaku, (Timo) Werner or any of the other struggling forwards, but my guess is that Borja will be sold, or at least loaned again.”

West Ham will be hugely encouraged by that prospect. Moyes simply must sign at least one striker this summer.

And West Ham’s players are said to have been really impressed by Broja during the three games against Southampton this season.

That’s according to a report a couple of months ago from The Evening Standard which claims Moyes actually passed up the chance of signing Broja before he left Chelsea to join Southampton on loan.

The 20-year-old Slough-born Albanian striker ticks all the boxes for Moyes’s West Ham recruitment policy.

And he would surely only get better playing under the Scot and in a much better team than Southampton’s.
