Two Champions League clubs enter race for 22-year-old Chelsea star

Wolves, Monaco and Bologna are pushing hard to wrap up a deal for Albanian striker Armando Broja according to reports.

Broja is expected to leave Chelsea this summer having failed to impress in the first half of last season under Mauricio Pochettino, and joined Fulham on loan in January where he had a really disappointing spell.

The Albania international is currently preparing for Euro 2024, and it remains to be seen if his future will be sorted before or after the tournament.

Champions League clubs chase Broja

Broja suffered a serious knee injury in a game against Aston Villa during the break for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar which took him a long time to recover from.

The 22-year-old returned to action for the Blues in September, but struggled to impress and was expected to be sold in January but no clubs were prepared to meet Chelsea’s ambitious asking price of £50m.

Broja is set to leave Chelsea this summer, and is attracting interest from Champions League teams.

Broja joined Fulham on loan for the second half of last season in an attempt to get regular playing time and boost his transfer value, but that didn’t work out as Rodrigo Muniz outshone him, and he spent the majority of his time on the bench.

Despite this a host of clubs across Europe are still interested in the Albanian’s service, and the Evening Standard report Wolves, Bologna and Monaco are all trying to complete a deal for the striker.

The reports add Broja is happy to wait until after Euro 2024 to decide on his future, but the increased competition for his signature could speed things up.

Chelsea will want to bring in a sizeable transfer fee for one of their homegrown players, but reports suggest interested clubs are looking at paying around £25m, considerably less than the £50m valuation the Blues placed on the striker in January.

Broja has made 38 appearances to date for Chelsea, scoring just three goals and is most likely to be one of a number of names to leave the club this summer.
