Express: 22-year-old forward wants out of Chelsea and favours Milan move

By Oliver Fisher -

Armando Broja wants to leave Chelsea this summer and he is looking favourably upon the idea of a move to AC Milan, according to a report.

The Daily Express in England are claiming that Broja ‘is ready to ditch the Premier League’ in favour of an experience abroad having struggled for playing time and having battled injuries in his past couple of seasons.

Milan are keen on the Chelsea striker as an alternative to Joshua Zirkzee, over whom there remains an ongoing battle with his agent Kia Joorabchian over commissions, while there is now rival interest from Manchester United to try and see off as well.

If United were to win the race for Zirkzee by agreeing a package with his entourage that would ‘pave the way’ for Milan to turn their attention to Broja, who is ‘high up on their attacking wish list’.

Even though Everton, Wolves and Stuttgart are also showing interest in the Albania international, the report claims that the idea of joining the Rossoneri is ‘considered particularly enticing by the player and his entourage’.

Above all there is a feeling that ‘his style of play could thrive in Serie A’, while the 22-year-old knows that he is expected to be sold on a permanent basis by Chelsea, who in turn want around £30m (€35m) in exchange which Milan can afford.

  1. Fonseca out, not even starting yet but approving to waste 50M € on Broja and Tammy with Oroghi and Jofic available is not acceptable. But let’s see when season starts until half season.

    1. That’s nice. So you believe every rumor out there? You think it’s real? Most of this is recycled media rumors. This one included.

    1. I think there is something there but he may fall from the wayside much like Schik, but on loan with an option to buy would be better but surely he can’t be our first team striker!!,.

      I think we should go for a second striker, given the competitions we will be in him and Zirkzee or Dyboak would be good

      1. as a backup fine, but i wouldnt pay more than 15-20 mil for him, considering both form and his injury history,

  2. He scores once in a blue moon.

    Can’t hit a barn door.

    Maybe they need to change him into a defender or something lol?

    1. Because he is a 191 cm guy who is, statistically, among the 20 fastest players in Europe’s top 5 leagues.

      1. Which all means nothing if you can’t score more than 1 goal a year – AS A F’NG STRIKER!!! Pathetic. It’s like buying a goalkeeper who makes one or two saves per year.

        1. He is 22, which means with good coaching he can mature. That was the rationale used for Hojlund, hence the 75 mln price tag. It is the combination of young age and physical attibutes that causes such seemingly high price tags.

          1. 22-23 yo should be near prime condition. And he by far scored single digit not counting another injury like Oroghi couple seasons ago.

  3. In 4 seasons he has 6 goals across all competition in England.
    While I’m aware he has had injuries( a red flag in itself) this guy is the definition of flop.

    He probably needs a couple of seasons in English 2nd division to get himself going again.
    He has no business been at Milan.

  4. IF Milan wants a “2-3 goals per season” striker, there’s already Origi, Maldini & Colombo. Why waste 20M€??????????
