What Mauricio Pochettino has said about Armando Broja's future at Chelsea amid interest from West Ham

Armando Broja has one goal from 13 Premier League games this season.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino gave little away as the winter transfer window enters its most important days. Striker Armando Broja's long-term future is still up in the air with the club encouraging offers for the London-born Albanian forward, LondonWorld has been told. 

Chelsea want to freshen their squad but it appears that they will have to sell before they can bring in anyone as they keep an eye on on the Premier League's Financial Fair Play regulations. Conor Gallagher and Broja are the two names that have been constantly linked with an exit.

Asked if Chelsea were still looking to attract buyers for the forward, Mauricio Pochettino said: "At the moment, [there is] no news

"We cannot update in any way. It’s all so quiet and I think that’s a good thing because we are working well." 

West Ham, Fulham and Wolves are all reported to be keen on a move for Broja, with Chelsea said to be holding out for a sum in the region of £35million. Broja has played 13 league games this season and is the club's only out-and-out striker at the moment with Christopher Nkunku injured and Nicolas Jackson away with Senegal at the AFCON.

Chelsea will take on Middlesbrough in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge and Broja who is said to be determined to stay at the club this season will hope he scores to remind everyone of his enormous talent.
