Graham Potter tells board he wants £78k-a-week star at Chelsea!

Will Broja leave Chelsea?

It has been claimed that Graham Potter wants to keep powerhouse striker Armando Broja at Stamford Bridge

Broja had a brilliant season while on loan at Southampton last season and his performances led to Cheslea giving him a chance to lead that attack this season.

The Slough-born forward registered his first Chelsea goal in the 3-0 victory over Wolves last month.

He has not had much game time under Graham Potter – and that has led to all sorts of speculation that a number of clubs are interested in a potential deal – but despite all that – fans have been told that the Blues boss wants to keep hold of the powerhouse

Journalist Simon Phillips told GMS: “I don’t think a loan move will happen, and I also don’t expect a permanent move to happen because Chelsea now hold all of the power there.

“If any clubs enquire, I think they would price him out of a move because they rate him highly at the club.

“They want him to stay. Potter trusts him, not enough to start him regularly yet, but he trusts him to come on and make an impact and make a difference.”

Speaking about his lack of playing time this season recently, Broja said: ‘I’ll try and perform as much as possible on the pitch and in training to get chances.

‘The competitiveness is very big and I know it’s not going to be easy but it’s something I look forward to.

‘I play quite freely. I try and do my best. When the manager does put me on, I try and provide a goal or assist. You’ve just got to give your best for the team.

‘I try to look at the positives from it. Every day working with big footballers, it’s a positive impact for me as a football player.

‘I look forward to the opportunities [Graham Potter] does give me. It shows the manager does trust me.’

Quizzed about reports in the summer that he could have left Chelsea for a different club in the Premier League, Broja added: ‘There’s always talk.

‘You see it at every club. I was just focused on getting ready for the season and showing the manager what I can do. I wasn’t really too sure what was going on outside.

‘I see [the new contract] as a massive opportunity for me. This is my boyhood club.

“I want to do my best and give it my all to break into the starting lineup.

‘For me, it’s a big stepping stone from where I was last season to where I am now. That’s my aim, to get better.

“There’s not many better clubs [you can be at] to learn.’
