Chelsea will reportedly reject any offers in January for Armando Broja.

According to the Evening Standard, Todd Boehly is planning to ignore any outside interest for the Albanian international, who does not want to leave.

Many clubs will be sniffing around Stamford Bridge to snuff out the young striker’s situation.

Broja is still a relatively new Blue, considering he only returned to Cobham properly over the summer following his loan spell at Southampton.

Before his excellent stint by the South Coast, the 21-year-old enjoyed an equally fulfilling year at Vitesse Arnhem.

Thanks to his performances in the Premier League, the forward earned a recall from Thomas Tuchel.

He may have only played a bit part up until Tuchel’s departure in September, but it was proof of Chelsea’s trust in their academy product.

Broja bubbling but not bursting

Having allowed club-record signing Romelu Lukaku leave on loan ahead of the campaign, the faith was then installed in Broja.

The talented attacker hasn’t quite blasted Graham Potter’s side to glory just yet, however.

His only goal of the term came in the 3-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers in October.

Chelsea have failed to win any of the three games he’s started so far across all competitions.

Yet, Broja is valued so highly by those around the camp, there is a sense he will deliver the goods eventually.

Raheem Sterling has voiced his admiration for his junior colleague, calling him the fastest man the squad, whilst Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has picked up on Broja’s strength.

Boehly evidently shares this view, as he apparently prepares to turn down approaches for the Albanian in the New Year.
