According to reports from Italy, Serie A champions AC Milan are looking for a long-term replacement for their aging strikers, and would be keen on signing Armando Broja from Chelsea.

AC Milan have earmarked Chelsea striker Armando Broja as a potential transfer target, reports claim.

Olivier Giroud will be 36 on September 30, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic turns 41 on October 3.

AC Milan are said to be looking for long-term replacements for their ageing strikers, and are keeping an eye on 21-year-old Broja.

Broja spent last season on loan with Southampton, and produced some eye-catching displays which has seen him become a transfer target for many clubs.

West Ham saw a bid of £30m rejected for Broja during the summer transfer window, and Chelsea got the young striker to sign a new six-year contract once the window was shut.

Former Liverpool star Divock Origi joined the club on a free transfer over the summer but is yet to make his first league start for the Italian champions.
