Chelsea are open to selling Armando Broja on a permanent deal before the January window closes, according to a report from the The Athletic.
Broja, a 22-year-old striker, has reportedly gained interest from Fulham, West Ham, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Albanian international made his return with Chelsea in September after he sustained an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in December 2022, where his team absorbed a 1-0 defeat over Aston Villa in the Premier League.
Broja only scored two goals in his 17 appearances this season, one of which came in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Preston North End in the FA Cup earlier this month.
Before sustaining a knee injury, Broja registered nine goals in 38 games on loan at Southampton during the 2021-22 season.
‘I need to be honest, he needs to use this type of game to score and to feel the net and to improve,’ Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
‘Improve not only in his fitness but his body language also. He needs to step up to go forward and to move. He needs to be more positive.”
“The potential is amazing. We’re talking about one of the young strikers in England and in Europe with the most potential. But the problem now is he needs to push himself, and we’re going to try to help him to realize that never it is enough.”
