Graham Potter reportedly doesn’t want to loan out Chelsea’s Armando Broja even if new signings are made at the top end of the pitch.

Broja, 21, is still a Blues prospect that is trying to become a key first-team player at Stamford Bridge.

The talented young striker has been promoted to the senior squad this season after a successful loan at Southampton last year, which makes him the latest success story from the academy at Cobham.

He’s actually made 14 Chelsea appearances across all competitions so far this campaign, starting in just one of them.

The centre-forward is getting plenty of minutes from the bench, but is competing with senior teammates such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kai Havertz to spearhead the attack.

Potter doesn’t want to loan out Broja

Journalist Ben Jacobs claims on Twitter that Everton and Newcastle United are both monitoring Broja to see if he becomes available to sign on loan.

However, Chelsea boss Potter doesn’t want to let the 21-year-old exit the Bridge on loan.

Broja is clearly doing enough with his minutes on the pitch this season to impress. In fact, a lot of supporters would love to see him play more.

Potter heavily praised the Albania international after his Chelsea goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers last month, explaining he’s been working very hard when he features.

Broja definitely looks capable of playing an important role in this Chelsea squad, so shutting down any rumours regarding a loan move is a no-brainer.

Hopefully, he can get the chance to impress with a starting position against Dinamo Zagreb during Wednesday night’s game.

There’s nothing riding on the result of tonight’s Champions League game against Dinamo Zagreb, with qualification as group winners already clinched.

However, it’s the kind of night where Broja can show his worth and push closer to the starting XI.
