We don’t know if Chelsea will sign another attacking option this summer, but even if they do, the departure of Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku, plus a likely move away for Callum Hudson-Odoi, means that Armando Broja is set to play an important role this season.
It’s crazy to think that just a month ago, Ben Jacobs of NBC Sport was saying the striker was “unsettled,” and a move to West Ham looked very likely.
Broja is currently pretty unsettled and sources indicate he will be “relieved” to resolve his future. It’s challenging flying late to the US tour then returning early. High volume of clubs interested, too, including Newcastle, meaning a lot has been up in the air.

In our first Premier League game he was the first man off the bench, and that looks set to continue. He might end up making a number of starts for the Blues, and a load of sub appearances. Let’s hope he gets some goals too.
That’s about as good as he could have hoped for this season, a concrete step forward in his development, and a real turnaround in the space of a month.
