Journalist Ben Jacobs has claimed that Frank Lampard is weighing up making a late move to sign Chelsea’s Armando Broja on loan.
The Everton boss is winless after his first three games of the season, with a lack of available firepower being cited as a big reason for their struggles.
An injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin as well as the departure of Richarlison has left the former Chelsea man struggling for options to feature up front.
Broja has appeared of the bench twice for the Blues this season already, with an injury ruling him out of last weekend’s loss to Leeds United.
After a summer of links away from Stamford Bridge, the interest in his services may not yet be over, with Jacobs claiming the Toffees considering him as one of a few options to bring in.
He said: “Frank Lampard is considering a late loan move for Armando Broja. Chelsea still reluctant to sanction any permanent sale.
Everton considering late Broja move
“Che Adams on Everton’s radar. Loan not possible and he’s valued at £25m. Scored twice off the bench against Leicester. No guarantee Southampton will sell.”
With Chelsea reportedly poised to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before the window closes next week, it could be a season of few opportunities for Broja in West London.
It looked certain that he was already set to leave during the summer, with West Ham coming closest to securing a deal before the season started.
Some fans may be keen for competition to remain at the club however, given the form currently shown by starting option Kai Havertz.
The German has played in all three games this season, although is yet to score and regain the form he showed at the turn of the year.
It has previously been stated though that the 20-year-old is wanting regular gametime this campaign, so it will be interesting to see if he pushes for a move again.
