Chelsea received a second request for a striker to replace a former member of their own team at another club.
According to rumors, another Serie A team Roma have contacted AC Milan about a possible deal for Chelsea attacker Armando Broja.

Broja was reintegrated into the Chelsea system last season, but an injury cut short his season. He has been linked with a loan move elsewhere as he gets ready to play again to ensure he can return to playing frequently.

Broja was mentioned earlier this week in relation to AC Milan’s search for a more dependable winger to back up Olivier Giroud, an ex-Chelsea attacker.

But after being considered by Roma as a potential Tammy Abraham replacement, it has now come to light that the Albanian international might fill in for a different former Chelsea striker.

Sky Sport Italia claims that Roma has requested information about Broja. After Abraham had an ACL injury, they are still looking for a striker, and after a dismal second season in Serie A, they probably would have moved the former Chelsea player otherwise.

After a painful summer in which they failed to land other objectives like Gianluca Scamacca, who transferred from West Ham United to Atalanta in his place, Roma have come up with the latest proposal in the form of Broja.

However, Roma has currently been given a response that is comparable to the one Milan received from Chelsea on Broja. According to reports, the Blues are not yet willing to loan the 21-year-old out.

Although Christopher Nkunku is already injured, they have also signed Nicolas Jackson to bolster their attack this summer. Therefore, once he is once again in the running for a spot, Broja will have fallen farther down the pecking order.

Broja may run into difficulties if Chelsea is able to sign a center-forward with even more experience. Despite the fact that he is under contract until 2028, which would give his employers time to lend him out if necessary, it appears that his employers would prefer to sell him than loan him out.

If Chelsea decided to sell their academy graduate, it is not yet known what they would seek for him.

Broja is not currently a priority for Roma.
Broja has played 19 times for Chelsea’s first team, making one goal, and has previously spent time on loan at Vitesse and Southampton.

It appears that if Chelsea maintain their stance on Broja, the storm may pass. According to a source from Sky Sport Italia, Roma are also interested in Duvan Zapata from Atalanta, Marcos Leonardo from Santos, and Willian Jose from Real Betis.

Divock Origi’s performance in his first season after joining Milan from Liverpool was obviously disappointing, and the club is also dealing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s retirement.

For the time being, though, Broja is still a Chelsea player, and it is up to Mauricio Pochettino to keep him content in west London.
