Armando Broja is at the ‘front of the queue’ for a promotion to the first team squad should the Blues not sign a striker this summer, according to reports.
As per Goal, Broja is in pole position to join the Chelsea first team squad if the Blues fail in their pursuit to bring in another forward.
The blues have previously been linked with Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku as their search for a goalscorer continues, with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland their dream target.
However, a deal for either of the three could prove difficult this summer, with Dortmund are looking to keep Haaland at the club, Tottenham are wary of doing business with London rivals (Chelsea), and Lukaku has opened up on his desire to stay in Milan for another season.
With that, Chelsea could turn to one of their own and hand Broja the chance to impress and chase their forwad targets next season.
The Albanian has followed in the footsteps of academy graduate Mason Mount, who himself spent a season in the Eredevisie after emerging through the ranks in west London.
The 19-year-old has so far put in an impressive stats in the pre-season, scoring in training friendly match last night and netting one in Chelsea’s 6-1 thrashing of Peterborough.
Armando Broja has gradually present impressive stats that is quite pleasing to be considered, and could be in line to stay at Stamford Bridge ahead of the new season.
