Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Armando Broja is ‘100% focused’ on his future with Chelsea right now.

There have been reports from Italian media over the past few days that AC Milan were willing to make a move for the 21-year-old.

Despite still showing plenty of promise in training, Broja is yet to really nail down a regular role lasting anything more than a few minutes of the game.

He was awarded his first start on Wednesday against Brentford. The striker showed glimpses of what he can do despite being mostly frustrated by his 60 minute showing.

After the rumours that the Serie A champions were intrigued by the prospect of a deal, Romano has confirmed that the striker is only thinking about his future at Stamford Bridge.

He said: “More on Armando Broja after Milan links. Louis Bell, only intermediary of Broja — he met AC Milan to discuss about youth talents in his agency. 

Broja committed to Chelsea

“AC Milan appreciate Broja since long time but he signed new six-year deal one month ago and he’s now 100% focused on Chelsea.”

The new contract signed by the striker was a result of Todd Boehly’s desire for him to stay at the club.

It appeared as if Thomas Tuchel was happy to see him leave in the summer, with West Ham United close to securing a deal.

Blues fans will be happy that he has remained at the club, and will be hopeful that his first start is the catalyst for a number of proper appearances for the Blues.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang certainly a short-term option, there is still ample opportunity for Broja to have a future at the club.

With reports that the club see him having the potential to be one of the best strikers in Europe, he should feel confident that he can have a bright spell at Stamford Bridge.
