Report: Everton have now approached 'sensational' player who Newcastle made contact with this weekend
Everton have become the latest club to approach Chelsea about signing Armando Broja, just days after Newcastle did the same.
Over the weekend, it was reported that Newcastle were looking to make a move for Broja, with the Magpies keen to explore a loan deal for the Albanian international star. It’s claimed that Chelsea want to take a look at Broja over the summer, but the door is ajar for clubs to take him on loan again if Thomas Tuchel deems it the right thing.
And according to a report from Sky Sports tonight, Everton have now made their interest known to Chelsea when it comes to Broja. Presented as breaking news on SSN this evening, it’s being reported that Everton have made an initial approach to Chelsea, while the likes of West Ham and Southampton remain keen as well. The interest from Newcastle is also said to remain.
Broja started last season very well but tailed off somewhat towards the back end of the campaign. Nevertheless, the Albanian is hot property, and he has been hailed as ‘sensational‘ talent by former Saints star Franny Benali.
Everton are looking to replace Richarlison. The Toffees cashed in last week, bringing in around £50m for the Brazilian.
TBR’s View: Broja Could Really Make A Difference For Everton
Given his power and pace and how he plays, the thought of Everton having Calvert-Lewin and Broja up front is something Toffees fans could really get behind.
Broja did well last season to say it was his first year in English football and there was no shame in his form dipping off a tad at the end. Chelsea know they have a player on their hands, it’s just a case of if they can use him or not.
If Everton can sign Broja, you can rest assured it will go down well with Lampard and the Everton fans.
