Chelsea attacker Armando Broja is attracting interest from some Premier League clubs, according to reports.
Armando Broja, who’s just 21, is an exciting youngster that was rewarded with his first full season with the senior squad this year.
Unfortunately, the centre-forward picked up a serious knee injury in the winter and has watched from the sidelines the second half of the campaign.
However, Chelsea’s academy graduate is a big talent with a big future ahead of him. In fact, the Evening Standard recently claimed that Broja is ahead of schedule in his return from injury and could be back for pre-season this summer.
Well-respected journalist Simon Phillips has now reported on his Substack that Chelsea’s young striker is attracting interest.
He explains that Brighton and Brentford admire 21-year-old Broja, but there’s no plans from the Blues to sell or loan the player out in the summer.
Phillips said: “Sources have said there is interest coming in for Broja from a few clubs including Brentford and Brighton.
“However, Chelsea’s stance is they do not want to let Broja go, either on loan or on a permanent deal.
“They are aiming to have him straight back in the squad for next season.”
It does feel like Broja is an individual that will go under the radar going into next season.
There’s so much to love about the young forward with his pace and aggression, but we will have to wait and see how long it takes him to get back towards his best.
Jason Cundy previously explained his view that Chelsea have missed Broja in the second half of the season, which is something we completely agree with.
Of course, the Blues do need to go out there and sign a proven No 9 this summer. We expect Broja could provide great competition and cover in the striker position, though.
