It will take a very good offer to entice Chelsea to sell Armando Broja, says transfer insider Dean Jones.
The 20-year-old striker has impressed during his loan spell at Southampton this season, with the south coast club keen to keep him beyond the current campaign.
What’s the latest on Broja?
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl recently told the Daily Echo and other outlets that he would ask the Saints board to sign Broja permanently.
That’s no surprise, with Broja thriving at St Mary’s. In 17 Premier League appearances, including only nine starts, the Albanian international has managed to score five times.
And it looks like other clubs have taken notice, as Sky Sports report that the Saints will face competition to land him for good.
Enter the gift
Broja’s Premier League career is still in its infancy but he is proving himself in the English top flight so it really wouldn’t be a shock if some of Southampton’s rivals try to play for him in the near future. to come up.
What did Jones say about Broja’s future?
According to Jones, however, getting Broja out of Stamford Bridge permanently won’t be easy, with Chelsea likely to demand a huge fee for their rising star.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT on the striker’s future, Jones said: “If he is to leave, it must be a very good offer that will tempt Chelsea to sell him, which will probably involve some kind of buyout. [clause].”

Should Chelsea sell Broja?
It’s difficult. Broja is becoming a good striker, but how can Thomas Tuchel find space for the 6ft3 youngster he has described as ‘unique’?
Chelsea spent almost £100m on Romelu Lukaku last summer, while another big-money signing in Kai Havertz is another option the German has when choosing his No.9. there are too many obstacles right now.
The European champions have the option of sending Broja out on more loans, of course, before eventually integrating him into the senior squad. He signed a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge last summer, so there’s no need for them to rush into making hasty decisions.
But if they don’t have a plan for him and a really good offer comes in, then maybe a permanent transfer will benefit everyone here. And as Jones mentioned, Chelsea can always negotiate a buyout clause in any deal.
