According to The Telegraph via The Hard Tackle, Chelsea striker Armando Broja is ready to leave the club in January if the Blues sign a new striker.

The 22-year-old homegrown prospect is already a second-choice centre-forward behind Nicolas Jackson and does not want to fall in the pecking order any further.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing a striker during the January transfer window. Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, Brentford striker Ivan Toney and Sporting Lisbon striker Viktor Gyokeres are all targets for the Blues.

Broja is already behind Jackson in pecking order in the no.9 position and he believes Chelsea signing another striker in January will further restrict his game time.

Broja has made 12 appearances in the Premier League for Chelsea this season and 5 of them have been starts. He has scored just once for the Blues.
