Report: £30m Newcastle target now wants to join Everton despite offer from West Ham
According to iNews, Newcastle and West Ham’s Armando Broj is a target to leave Chelsea for Everton.
what is the story
The Albania international has been in the spotlight for much of the summer after shining during a season-long loan at Southampton last year – the Chelsea No.18 scoring six goals in 32 Premier League appearances.
Despite his efforts for Saints, Broja has been given just 15 minutes of Premier League action in two games so far this season by Thomas Tuchel, which he is unhappy with.
iNews believe the 20-year-old is desperate to play regular first-team football and is now open to joining Everton after the Toffees made him their No.1 target as they look to sign a new striker.
It comes after West Ham made a bid for Broj, while Eddie Howe is also keen to have the striker at Newcastle.
Indeed, the Magpies are yet to fill their home loan spots, with many expecting Chelsea to let fringe players such as Broja, Conor Gallagher and Callum Hudson-Odoi leave in the final days of the transfer window.
Chelsea are demanding £30m if the Albanian is to leave permanently.
However, Newcastle and West Ham have their work cut out for them if they want to sign Broj, with Everton seemingly in pole position at the moment.
Forget Newcastle & West Ham – Broja can shine at Everton
In our view, Broja is exactly what Frank Lampard needs at Everton and the foundation is in attack for the youngster to thrive.
The Toffees currently have a very young forward line consisting of Anthony Gordon, Dwight McNeil and Demarai Gray, all of whom lack physical presence.
However, Broja – a powerful brute of a striker – would help engage the trio with his possession skills and movement, which could really see Lampard’s timid Everton get going.
After two games of the Premier League campaign, the Toffees are yet to score.
Keep an eye on this situation as Broja’s future should be clear soon.
