Armando Broja is set for talks with Chelsea as Everton, Newcastle and West Ham United all hope to sign the striker this summer.
Broja has been coming through the Chelsea ranks having previously been on the books at Tottenham Hotspur.
The Albanian talent is already an International regular having bagged four goals in 14 caps.
Loan spells with Vitesse Arnhem and Southampton have given the 20-year-old a chance to showcase his qualities.
Strong and physical at 6ft 3in tall but also quick and skilful, Broja could become a complete striker in the coming years – but whether those years will be with Chelsea remain to be seen.
Armando Broja is set for talks with Chelsea
The Liverpool Echo report that Broja is now set to hold talks with Chelsea over his future later this week.
Broja wants his situation thrashed out quickly given that pre-season training will be starting up and down the country.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel would ideally like to give Broja a chance in pre-season but Broja may not want to wait that long.
Even if Broja impresses this summer, he is unlikely to be first or even second-choice striker at Chelsea even with Romelu Lukaku gone.
Add in that Chelsea are chasing other attacking signings this summer and Broja’s path to first-team action at Chelsea looks very tricky.
The Echo’s report notes that Everton would like to sign Broja as a replacement for RIcharlison after his move to Tottenham Hotspur.
Frank Lampard would be seeking a favour from his former club Chelsea but this will still be a major battle.
West Ham opened talks to sign Broja in a a deal worth up to £30million, but that hasn’t really progressed – much to West Ham’s frustration.
Further reports over the weekend claimed that Newcastle United are now confident of signing Broja, most likely in a loan deal.
The battle for Broja is well and truly on, and there could be developments in the coming days with Broja seeking talks over his future.
