Reports have claimed that Chelsea believe Armando Broja can become one of the best strikers in Europe.

According to The Athletic, the feeling at the club is that the 21-year-old can make those developments at Stamford Bridge.

The Albanian was handed his first start for the club last night against Brentford, and was handed 60 minutes before being replaced by Raheem Sterling.

He undoubtedly showed signs of what he can bring to the club.

His electric pace was too much for the Brentford backline on a number of occasions, and his perfect cross late in the half flashed across goal and past Kai Havertz in the middle.

There have been reports that some of Europe’s elite clubs are still interested in a deal for the striker.

High hopes for Broja

AC Milan are reportedly keen on a deal, refusing to rule out any sort of swap deal if the Blues retain their interest in Rafael Leao.

However, The Athletic have claimed that the player is receiving encouragement from Graham Potter that his future lies at Stamford Bridge.

The striker will surely be replaced from the start on Saturday by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who definitely impressed after coming on late last night.

Nevertheless, Broja certainly did his chances at featuring more often no harm, with the report claiming he was replaced last night for fitness reasons, as appose to how his first start went.

The Blues could consider another loan spell for the 21-year-old. Despite already featuring temporarily for Southampton, starting at a club who are competing in the Champions League could be beneficial for the player and the Blues.

With the club still hoping to make things work for Broja at Stamford Bridge, a season where he gets regular minutes could be extremely positive for his future.
