It’s been nearly two weeks since Graham Potter was appointed as the new Chelsea manager.

Potter could only guide Chelsea to a 1-1 draw in his first match as Chelsea manager, against Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League last Wednesday.

The former Brighton boss has now had ample time to work with his players as Chelsea have seen Premier League games against Fulham and Liverpool postponed.

Chelsea’s next game is after the international break when the Blues travel to Crystal Palace on October 1.

According to reports, one player that has caught Graham Potter’s attention is young Blue Armando Broja.

Broja barely featured under Thomas Tuchel before the German’s departure, as he was often used as a substitute.

According to The Sun, Potter has been impressed with the 21-year-old striker who has performed very well in training.

Chelsea insiders say Potter has been ‘raving about Broja’s potential and ability to fit into his system’.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang spearheaded Chelsea’s attack against Red Bull Salzburg last week, with Broja coming on to replace him.

Reports now claim that Graham Potter is considering using Broja from the start against Crystal Palace.
