Serie A giants ready to make move for Chelsea striker amid Premier League interest

The Chelsea star is reportedly a transfer target for the reigning Serie A champions.

Chelsea striker Armando Broja is attracting attention from several clubs ahead of the January transfer window.

The Albanian international returned from a successful loan spell at Premier League rivals Southampton looking to establish himself in the Blues squad.

However, the striker is yet to make a start in any competition under former manager Thomas Tuchel or his successor Graham Potter.

Broja did start for Albania in their recent 2-1 defeat against Israel but was back among the substitutes for Tuesday night’s 1-1 home draw against Iceland.

He will now return to Chelsea looking to impress new manager Potter as he adapts to life at Stamford Bridge.

The 21-year-old has reportedly impressed the former Brighton and Hove Albion boss during training, with insiders suggesting Broja has ‘made a big impression in training’ in recent weeks.

Speaking recently about the challenges he faces at Stamford Bridge, Broja told Gazeta Tema: “For me there is not much pressure because I am playing football.

“I have been playing football since I was 3 years old. I have no emotions. Play for fun, to win and to help the team. There is absolutely no pressure.

“I’m always in shape. I exercise every day. We know that it is more difficult to get into the Chelsea team than to play for Southampton.

“I do train every day here in Albania as well. Physically, I am fine.”

Several clubs have been linked with a move for Broja as he struggles to find regular game-time at Stamford Bridge and Italian outlet CalcioMercato have reported AC Milan are ‘considering’ a move to sign the striker.

The likes of Everton, Newcastle United and West Ham United were all linked with Broja during the summer before turning their attention elsewhere.

A price tag of around £26million has been suggested and Milan are said to be ‘confident’ they can agree a move and persuade the striker to move to Serie A.
