Armando Broja won't leave Chelsea on loan amid West Ham United interest, meeting scheduled this week

Armando Broja will meet with Chelsea owner Todd Boehly this week to discuss his future after West Ham made contact for a transfer, according to the Standard.

The Albanian international enjoyed a great loan spell at Southampton in the 2021/22 season and has attracted interest from the Hammers and Everton over a potential deal this summer, with both clubs making official contact this week.

Now new Chelsea owner Boehly is set to hold talks with the striker over his future this week according to the Standard [July 5], with Thomas Tuchel keen to keep him around for pre-season to take a closer look at him.

Newcastle have had their interest dismissed as the player isn’t interested in another loan, prioritising a permanent move away if he can’t get a substantial role at Stamford Bridge.

Everton have made contact over a potential £30m move for the 20-year-old and West Ham are considering matching that offer, having made him their number one target for a striker signing.

While the transfer market has gone fairly well so far for West Ham, they need an answer from Chelsea on whether this deal is a go-er or not and they need it fast.

Moyes has made him the priority target for the attack but there is only so long the club should be willing to wait for a deal to be done before it starts affecting them negatively.

At some point a decision will need to be made on whether to pursue the deal or move on to other targets, otherwise the club risk missing out on him and other targets because they waited too long to get an 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 an answer from Broja and Chelsea they can opt to change tact.

But this meeting is a step in the right direction for all involved and hopefully we as well as the club will have more information on how this is going to go.
