Chelsea announcement imminent after powerhouse arrives to complete Medical
It has been claimed that Chelsea and Fulham have agreed a deal for striker Armando Broja
Fulham and Wolves have been interested in signing the Albania international but scoffed at The Blues’ massive asking price.
Broja has scored only one Premier League goal this season. He did not make his comeback from a serious knee injury until September.
But CHELSEA owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali, who have blown £1 billion on new players since they took over the club, were holding out for the massive fee until last night.
Fabrizio Romano reports that a deadline-day deal has now been struck with their west London neighbours instead. Fulham will sign Broja on a simple six-month loan for a fee which will rise to £4m depending on performance-related add-ons.
Responsibility has weighed heavy on Nicolas Jackson so far this term but, with Broja gone, the Senegalese remains Pochettino’s main option up front and will be given more of a chance to prove himself in that Blues side
Broja certainly made a mistake in the summer by deciding to stay at CHELSEA – it really hasnt work out for the man and he has barely got any game time – so a move away is the best thing.
He will fit into that Fuham side very nicely and it will give him the opportunity to showcase his abilities ahead of the summer window – as there could be a few clubs interested in the player
