Initially, I used to be very shocked to see the information are available at this time concerning Armando Broja doubtlessly leaving Chelsea this summer season.
As you’ll be able to see from the report under, he returned from Chelsea’s pre-season journey to America to type out a transfer to West Ham, who seem like closing in on the deal now.

After Romelu Lukaku leaving Chelsea early within the window, and Chelsea not being strongly linked with signing every other new strikers (STs) this summer season, I assumed Broja would see this as a super alternative to make that place his. However no, it seems that he’s the one now pushing for this transfer.
It’s disappointing I can’t lie, and a few of that’s right down to the truth that Chelsea may very well be dropping their solely true quantity 9. We shouldn’t have one other participant of that calibre. Kai Havertz is extra of a false 9, and Timo Werner is extra of a second striker, or inside ahead.
I consider that if Broja goes, then we have to signal an out and out quantity 9, extra of a goal man type striker who might be helpful along with his again to objective and linking up play, in addition to be an actual risk within the field.
Chelsea shouldn’t have this profile of striker and I firmly consider that within the Premier League, it’s worthwhile to have gamers with good physicality, and having a real goalscoring quantity 9 is an choice that The Blues will remorse having in the event that they let Broja go, and don’t herald one other quantity 9.
The difficulty is, there simply doesn’t seem like very many choices out there proper now.
