Report: PL club ready to sell £30m player this summer to try and help them sign Chelsea attacker

West Ham are reportedly prepared to sell Said Benrahma this summer to help fund summer moves for players they want like Chelsea attacker Armando Broja.

According to the Daily Mail, Premier League side West Ham will listen to transfer offers during this summer window for their 26-year-old winger Benrahma.

It is understood the Hammers want to try recoup the £30million they spent on him 18 months ago.

The report adds incoming transfer fees will help David Moyes’ West Ham press ahead with bids to sign targets, which include Chelsea’s Broja and soon-to-be free agent Jesse Lingard.

Broja, 20, is due to return for Chelsea’s pre-season after an eye-catching year-long spell in the Premier League with Southampton.

The centre-forward’s started to make a name for himself in the English game with some impressive performances for Southampton, ending the season with nine goals in all competitions. His physique and presence for someone so young is equally as impressive, too.

West Ham want Broja

West Ham’s interest in Chelsea-owned talent Broja does date back to last month.

It was reported the 20-year-old made a big impression on the Hammers squad when playing against them for Southampton this year. Therefore, Moyes could end up launching a bid to take him to the London Stadium this summer.

Elsewhere, recently promoted Nottingham Forest have been linked with an attempt to try take the striker on loan next season.

Broja’s future for the new season will reportedly be decided by how well he performs for Chelsea in their upcoming pre-season, though.

The Albania international should definitely feel like there’s a spot open for him to break into the senior fold at Stamford Bridge, so it’s a decisive couple of months coming up for him.
