West Ham maintain interest in signing of Chelsea pair

West Ham United remain keenly interested in the signatures of two members of the first-team setup at Premier League rivals Chelsea, according to reports.

The players in question? Conor Gallagher, and Armando Broja.

Beginning with the former, it is of course common knowledge that the powers that be at the London Stadium are on the lookout for reinforcements in the middle of the park with a view to next season.

On the back of the big-money departure of talisman Declan Rice, David Moyes has been left with a gaping hole in his engine room ranks.

A whole host of midfield talents, in turn, have been tipped to take their talents to east London, from Ajax standout Edson Alvarez to Fulham’s Joao Palhinha and Denis Zakaria of Juventus.

The aforementioned Gallagher, though, remains in the sights of Moyes and co, according to Jacob Steinberg of The Guardian.

But, as alluded to above, Gallagher is not the only Chelsea star in West Ham’s sights.

Joining the England international in ongoing internal discussions at the London Stadium is Armando Broja.

The centre-forward spot is another in need of fresh blood at West Ham, amid ongoing speculation linking Gianluca Scamacca with a swift return to Serie A.

Broja, who came close to linking up with David Moyes’ troops last summer, has therefore unsurprisingly been identified as a prime target.

It remains to be seen, however, whether the Albanian international’s recent long-term injury deters the Hammers from moving ahead with an official proposal.
