AC Milan reportedly think Chelsea’s Armando Broja fits them perfectly, which is why they are interested in bringing him to the San Siro.

It’s not the first time the Italian giants have been linked with a Chelsea attacker, with Hakim Ziyech on their radar during the recent summer transfer window.

Eventually, the Serie A champions reportedly pulled out of a move for the 29-year-old Blues winger, who’s still part of the squad at Stamford Bridge.

AC Milan think Broja fits perfectly

According to Calciomeracto, Milan are targeting Broja as they look ahead to signing a new centre-forward next summer.

It is explained the Italians love the Chelsea striker’s technical qualities and physical structure, something that fits in with their philosophy.

The report adds that Todd Boehly’s Chelsea could still end up selling their frontman for around €30million (£27million).

Milan’s interest in signing the 21-year-old Blues talent is still in the early stages, but it’s a move that could pick up speed in the coming months.

Give him a chance

Calciomercato’s report acknowledges that Broja did sign a new six-year deal at Stamford Bridge at the start of September, but that’s not repelling Milan’s interest.

Surely, Chelsea can’t entertain the idea of getting rid of him anytime soon.

The Albania international is now in Graham Potter’s first team after a strong loan at Southampton last year.

Chelsea’s academy graduate is definitely ready to compete in the main squad, something he’s showing with lively cameo performances already this campaign.

It’s time he gets a proper run out with domestic football returning this weekend following the international break.

This is the time to be excited to see whether Broja can cut it as Chelsea’s No.9, rather than look at cashing in on him.
