NEWCASTLE and Everton have reportedly revived their interest in Chelsea's Armando Broja following West Ham ending their pursuit of the striker.
The Hammers had been chasing a permanent deal for Broja, who spent last season on loan at Southampton, believed to be in the region of £30million.
However Blues boss Thomas Tuchel insisted he wants to take a look at the Chelsea academy product, 20, with the club short in the striker department following the loan exit of Romelu Lukaku.
West Ham then turned their attention towards Sassuolo's Gianluca Scamacca and the East London club have agreed a fee for the player.
But following the Hammers dropping out of the race, Newcastle AND Everton have revived their interest in Broja, according to newsperThe i.
The Magpies are hoping to bolster boss Eddie Howe's attacking ranks and are willing to take Broja on loan – which may appeal more to Chelsea.
