Newcastle, West Ham & AC Milan eyeing Chelsea striker

Chelsea loan star Armando Broja is attracting interest from Serie A giants AC Milan, Inter and Napoli, alongside Premier League sides Newcastle, West Ham and Southampton, according to reports.

Broja, like most Chelsea youngsters, was shipped out on loan for the 2021/22 season, joining Southampton for the length of the campaign.

He enjoyed a decent start to life under the watch of Ralph Hasenhuttl, with the striker having scored six league goals between October and early February.

However, since his last strike in a 3-2 win over Tottenham on February 9th, Broja has gone a rather concerning 13 league games without a goal or an assist.

Granted, Southampton as a squad have not been at their best, but 13 games without a goal for a striker at any level does not exactly make for good reading.

Despite such woes, though, Broja still looks to be attracting a fair bit of interest.

Goal have revealed that Chelsea face a choice this summer about whether to give the 20-year-old a chance in the first-team or let him go for a large profit ahead of a possible bidding war.

It is added that Thomas Tuchel’s view will be key to the long-term future of the Albania international, who is being offered first-team football elsewhere:

And whilst Chelsea have been burned in the very recent past by letting top youngsters go, if they can get a decent fee for Broja, it may be worth selling him this summer as the 20-year-old does not exactly seem ready to lead the line for the Blues in 2022/23.
