Chelsea forward Armando Broja going nowhere
Despite the interest of Newcastle United and West Ham United, Chelsea are unlikely to sell forward Armando Broja this summer. The player, who spent last season on loan at Southampton, is expected to play an important role in the club's first team this season.
Thomas Tuchel has informed the player that he will be staying at Stamford Bridge, and in an interview with the media today the topic of Broja was discussed. Tuchel announced that Broja would not be leaving: "Armando is our player first of all and we have, at the moment, no interest in selling him, he is here to make an impression after he was on loan in Southampton.
"That’s his situation from where we look up front. It’s good if there’s interest as it shows us there’s talent and potential. It shows us that he is in the position to impress and become a Chelsea player.
"When will he become a Chelsea player? No one knows but hopefully as soon as possible. He has been injured and there’s a delay for him which is not nice because a young player should normally make an impression from the 1st minute in pre-season. Now we have a bit of a delay in that but that’s the situation."
