Chelsea has ‘chosen to bet’ on a youngster for the coming season – Could have a ‘fundamental role’ in the star’s exit
Armando Broja of Chelsea spent the 2012/13 season on loan with Southampton, where he scored nine goals and added one assist in 38 appearances across all competitions.
The Saints were not given the option of extending the striker’s contract, therefore he will have to return to Chelsea this summer.
Broja’s Southampton exploits drew the interest of a number of clubs, notably those in Serie A, and a few of his pursuers have even made offers to Chelsea.
This is according to TuttoMercatoWeb, who claim the Blues have turned down proposals for the Albanian international.
Chelsea have ‘chosen to bet’ on the 20-year-old, and he will be part of Thomas Tuchel’s plans for the forthcoming season at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian is unhappy at the club and has shown an interest in returning to Inter Milan, according to sources.
Broja’s continued presence, according to TMW, may make it easier for Chelsea to let Lukaku leave this summer.
