Reports have claimed that Chelsea could include striker Armando Broja as part of any deal to sign Rafael Leao from AC Milan.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Blues value the 21-year-old at around £35m, and him being included in a swap deal can not be ruled out.

Despite scoring his first goal for the club in the win against Wolves ten days ago, it has been a season of cameos for the young striker.

He is yet to start for Chelsea this season under either Thomas Tuchel or Graham Potter.

He has appeared in a lot of games for the Blues, however him getting more than 10 minutes in a game which is normally already decided is a rarity.

This lack of game time makes him an obvious target for rival teams, with TuttoMercatoWeb claiming that the Serie A champions are one of the clubs interested in a deal.

Chelsea could swap Broja for Leao

The report claims it could come to fruition with Rafael Leao headed the other way.

Milan are still encountering difficulties in getting the highly-talented winger to sign a new deal to remain at the club.

Chelsea were widely reported to want to sign him late this summer, and more recent claims have said they will return for him in the market.

Chiefs at Stamford Bridge got two first-hand viewings of what he can offer, when the sides faced each other in a pair of crucial Champions League matches.

While Reece James brought out some of his best displays against him down the Milan left, the Portugal international still showed glimpses of his extraordinary talent.

He clearly left an impact on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang too, who described him as ‘incredible’.

Chelsea fans will no doubt want to see Broja be given a proper chance in the first team before any decision is made about letting him go.
