'I don't': Everton's move for 'sensational' international striker could now be blocked by the PL - journalist

Football journalist Paul Brown has claimed that the Premier League may not allow Everton to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea this summer.

The Toffees have had their problems with Financial Fair Play. That has restricted them from splashing big money in recent transfer windows, and it could once again forbid them from signing a player they’re really keen on.

Everton’s move for Armando Broja could now be blocked by Premier League

Despite the financial difficulties, Everton have pulled off a few impressive deals. James Tarkowski and Conor Coady at the back are magnificent additions, while Ruben Vinagre and Dwight McNeil are exciting signings as well.

The best of the lot, however, has to be Amadou Onana. The Toffees signed the Belgian midfielder for £33 million (BBC) earlier this week. He is a fine addition, but Brown thinks his arrival could force the Premier League to stop Everton from splashing big money on other players in this window.

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “I think Broja’s fee might be beyond them now because they’ve paid over £30 million for Onana in midfield.

“I don’t think the Premier League would allow them to do that signing, personally.”

TBR View:

We don’t know the financial implications of Everton’s transfer business this summer, but if the Toffees can sign Broja, they should.

The Albania international spent last season out on loan at Southampton. He scored nine times for the Saints in all competitions and made a name for himself as one of the best young strikers in the Premier League.

Still only 20, Broja has a bright future ahead of him. The youngster, branded as ‘sensational‘, has been linked with a whole host of clubs this summer, but who better to play under than a Chelsea legend in Frank Lampard.

It will be interesting to see what happens at Everton in the coming weeks.
