Broja suffers serious knee injury

Chelsea striker Armando Broja is out for the remainder of the season following a serious knee injury, according to Standard Sport.

The Albanian has been used sparingly by manager Graham Potter, but there have been suggestions that he could play more often next year.

Unfortunately, he won't be involved for the rest of the season at least after picking up an anterior cruciate ligament injury last week.

Broja suffered the setback in the friendly loss to Aston Villa and this could force the Blues to enter the transfer market for a new striker.

Borussia Dortmund's Youssoufa Moukoko has been linked with a possible move, but he is largely inexperienced at the highest level.

The Blues need a marquee signing at the turn of the year such that they can close the gap on the Champions League spots in the league.

They could be tempted to land Cristiano Ronaldo, who is a free-agent following his release from Manchester United last month.
