West Ham have made offers for Chelsea striker Armando Broja and Lille midfielder Amadou Onana as David Moyes tries to strengthen his squad ahead of the new season.
The Hammers have offered a deal worth £30m to Chelsea for 20-year-old striker Broja, who scored nine goals in 38 games in all competitions on loan at Southampton last season.
West Ham are believed to be ready to pay £25m upfront for the Albania international. Negotiations are continuing between the clubs, with Broja currently on tour with Chelsea in the United States, which will then stop in Las Vegas. He received a blow this week, but we don’t think it was serious.
West Ham are among several Premier League clubs interested in signing Broja this summer, including Everton, Newcastle and Southampton.
Moyes is also looking for a midfield boost and West Ham have made an improved third offer for Onana. The latest offer is believed to be around £32.3m (€38m) plus add-ons and Lille are seriously considering the offer.
They signed Onana, 20, from Hamburg for €7million last summer, so make a big profit on the Belgium international who made 11 starts and 21 under-appearances in the French Ligue 1 last season.
West Ham’s first signing of the summer window was defender Nayef Aguerd, who joined Rennes for £30m, and they have also activated an option to buy goalkeeper Alphonse Areola for £7.75m. pounds from Paris Saint-Germain after his successful loan spell last season.
Moyes is looking to improve his squad ahead of a season that will see West Ham combine Premier League improvement with a debut campaign in the Europa Conference League.
