According to The Sun, the east London club are reportedly interested in signing the 20-year-old from Chelsea at the end of the season when his loan deal with the Saints expires.
Southampton could be challengers to West Ham in order to sign Broja, but if David Moyes guides the Hammers back into Europe for 2022/23, then it could be a straightforward choice for the Albanian.
Despite an excellent season so far, with the Irons failing just short of the Europa League final and still in the hunt for a European berth next season, Moyes needs to bolster his attacking options for the upcoming campaign.
With Michail Antonio being West Ham’s only natural centre-forward, it’s paramount that the search for a new striker is acted upon sooner rather than later.
Moyes was suitably impressed by Broja when the 20-year-old faced the Hammers this season, scoring against them in the FA Cup to knock West Ham out of the tournament.
The Jamaica international is 32 and has had an indifferent season, failing to score in the Premier League in 2022 despite netting six times in his opening eight matches of the campaign.
West Ham can’t keep relying on Antonio, especially when he is going through a tough run of form. With Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl dubbing Broja “dangerous”, this should tell Moyes all he has to know about the enormous potential that the 20-year-old can boast.
