Armando Broja had an ... okay ... season on loan at Southampton, with nine goals to his name in all competitions, but given his age (turns 21 in September) and his play beyond just goals and assists at the highest level, he’s still attracting plenty of attention in the transfer market, and rightly so. Southampton knew this would happen as well, which is why they tried to push a transfer through starting in January, but we rejected them then, and now there’s plenty of competition for the Academy product’s favor.
Of course, all that is assuming that we would consider letting him go, which seems far from certain, especially if Romelu Lukaku leaves, which seems all but certain. But if we were to let Broja go, which probably would be unwise — or if he wanted to leave already, which would be sad — there would be absolutely no shortage of suitors for his signature.
Leading the pack appear to be West Ham United, who may or may not be readying a £25-30m bid that they’ve been rumored to be readying for a couple months now.
