WEST HAM have made Armando Broja their top target.
And the Hammers are set to make a £30million bid to sign him from Chelsea.
The Albanian striker, 20, impressed on loan at Southampton last season, where he netted six league goals.
He could still be given his chance to impress during pre-season with the Blues this summer.
But a hefty offer could convince Chelsea to sell.
And West Ham are ready to do just that.

Southampton would also love to sign Broja again, either on loan again on permanently.
However, the St Mary’s club would be unlikely to be able to match West Ham in a bidding war.
