Chelsea: £50m ace ‘pushing for a move’ at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea striker Armando Broja is pushing for a move away from Stamford Bridge before the end of the transfer window, according to Paul Brown of the Daily Star.

Thomas Tuchel has overseen a busy summer in west London but they could still be plenty more movement in both directions before the September 1 deadline.

What is the latest on Broja’s future?

The 20-year-old was sent out on loan to Southampton for the 2021-22 season and impressed on the south coast, scoring six Premier League goals.

Broja played the last 15 minutes of Chelsea’s 1-0 win away to Everton on Saturday but it still remains to be seen whether he will stay with the club beyond the deadline.

Tuchel hinted that he would be remaining at Stamford Bridge beyond the deadline during their pre-season tour of the USA, saying: “I don’t expect him to leave. We are aware of interest and offers, which just tells us there is a lot of potential, and the owners and me will take this decision together in the end, also with the player.”

After Romelu Lukaku was sent back on loan to Inter Milan, Broja was left as the only out-and-out striker at Stamford Bridge and GiveMeSport have previously been informed it could take £50 million to tempt Chelsea into selling the forward.

What has Brown said on Broja’s situation?

Brown understands that the striker is pushing for a move away this summer and wants to be playing every week with a move dependant one whether Chelsea will sanction a move.

The journalist told GIVEMESPORT: “His people were telling us for weeks that he’s desperate to play and that he wants to play every week, and that’s why he was pushing for the move. It’s really in his hands, I think, and whether Chelsea would be willing to sell or to send him on loan again.”

Where could Broja’s future lie?

The striker has not been short of admirers since returning from his loan spell with Southampton.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has previously expressed his desire to bring Broja back to St Mary’s next season, but they are no longer alone in the pursuit.

Newcastle, West Ham and Everton are all reportedly interested in signing him this summer and Chelsea are primed to trigger a bidding war should they wish.

If Todd Boehly can bring in a new striker of their own, then that may well take place before the September 1 deadline.
