Chelsea striker Armando Broja is attracting strong interest from some Premier League clubs.

The young striker impressed on loan last season with Southampton, and he’s now being targeted by some top Premier League sides.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, two bids have already been submitted by West Ham for Broja, with other Premier League sides also showing interest in the Chelsea striker.

Romano wrote on twitter: “West Ham have submitted two bids in the last 24 hours. Proposal around €35m for Armando Broja, Chelsea have not decided yet as there are many clubs interested. ?⚒️ #WHUFC”

Broja is keen on a move away from Chelsea, as he wants to play regular football next season.

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards was impressed by Broja’s performance for Southampton, especially in the Saints Premier League game against Manchester United in February.

Broja bullied Harry Maguire and Rapael Varane all game, and Richards was impressed.

Richards said: “Broja, I know we’ve mentioned him before, but he’s bullying not only Maguire but he’s bullying Varane as well, which I couldn’t quite understand for someone so young.”

Broja is definitely a top star in the making, and Chelsea may be letting go of a quality player if this deal goes through.
