English Premier League giants Chelsea are reportedly thinking to sell their Albanian forward Armando Broja for a fee of £30 million.
Armando Broja started his football journey at the academy of Tottenham Hotspurs. He trained for two seasons in the Spurs academy before joining the youth ranks of their arch-rivals Chelsea.
Broja gradually rose through the ranks of Chelsea academy and was promoted to the main team in 2020. However, he was soon loaned out to the Dutch outfit Vitesse. Broja soon cemented his spot in the starting eleven and scored ten goals for Vitesse in the Eredivisie.
After a successful loan spell with the Dutch club, the forward joined English Premier League Southampton on a year-long loan deal. Throughout the season the forward played exceptional football and netted nine goals in 37 appearances.

After the successful loan deal, Broja returned to Chelsea at the start of this season. The forward had many offers from other teams but decided to extend his stay with Chelsea for six more years.
Broja has got a slow start to his Chelsea career. Chelsea signed Gabonese forward Pierre Emerick-Aubmeyang at the start of the season, which has made Broja’s minutes limited. The Albanian has made thirteen appearances for Chelsea so far. Out of these 13 matches, Broja started in one. He has scored only one goal.
Now according to a report from Calciomercato, Serie-A giants AC Milan want to sign the midfielder in the upcoming January transfer window.
Milan are currently the defending Serie-A champions. They have got a great start to their title defense. The Rossoneri have won eight out of their first eleven matches this season. With twenty-six points, they are currently in the second position in the Serie-A table.
Now the Milan management wants to strengthen their forward line-up at the next January transfer window. Hence they are looking at the 21-year-old Armando Broja who has proved his ability to score goals.
The Rossoneri tried to sign the Albanian in the last transfer window. However, back then, Chelsea were not interested to sell him. Things have now changed and the Blues are ready to sell him if AC Milan pays in the range of £30 million.
Chelsea signed Graham Potter after the end of the summer transfer window to replace their Champions League-winning manager Thomas Tuchel. Now under Potter, the Blues have turned around their season. They have qualified for the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. Chelsea are in a good position to finish in the top four of the English Premier league.
The Blues will play Brighton in their next match.
