West Ham Make Combined Bid Of £100 Million For Three Transfer Targets, Including Armando Broja
| Last updated
West Ham are ready to make a huge splash in the summer transfer window after they launched three transfer bids worth a combined £100 million to improve their squad.
The Hammers secured a 7th place finish in the Premier League last season following a packed 2021/22 schedule.
After being knocked out of the Europa League by Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, who went on to win the competition, the Hammers missed their chance to snatch a Europa League return after squandering a lead to lose 3-1 to Brighton.
Despite a disappointing end to their campaign, the majority of supporters were satisfied with their performance over the course of the season.
That being said, David Moyes is clearly not willing to settle for second best this time around.
According to reports, the Hammers are willing to spend £25 million plus add-ons for Chelsea forward Armando Broja.
The 20-year-old striker, who scored nine goals in 38 games on loan at Southampton last season, has been left out of Chelsea's summer tour of America.
But Blues boss Thomas Tuchel insists the player is not for sale. "Armando is our player first of all and we have, at the moment, no interest in selling him," he told reporters this week.
"He is here to make an impression after he was on loan in Southampton. That’s his situation from where we look up front. It’s good if there’s interest as it shows us there’s talent and potential."

“He's here to make an impression”, Tuchel added.

West Ham have also submitted bids for highly-rated Sassuolo forward Gianluca Scamacca and Lille midfielder Amadou Onana, with their latest bid for the Belgian believed to be £32.3 million plus add-ons.
The Ligue 1 club are 'seriously considering the offer', say Sky Sports.
Scamacca, meanwhile, is also the subject of a bid from West Ham. The Italy international, who scored 16 goals in 45 appearances for club and country last season, is valued at around £40 million by the Serie A club.
TalkSPORT suggest the fees combined for Broja, Onana and Scamacca are worth a combined £100 million.
They have already brought in defender Nayef Aguerd from French side Rennes for a reported £31.5 million, not to mention the additions of Alphonse Areola and Flynn Downes
