Sporting CP interested in taking Armando Broja on loan from Chelsea

Sporting CP have made Chelsea striker Armando Broja a target in the summer transfer window, according to Bola Na Rede.

The Lisbon side is trying to add to their striking options for next season, and they have turned to the Albanian international.

They reportedly have good relations with the Premier League club and could use it to their advantage.

Broja’s future with Chelsea is unclear after suffering a long-term injury that ruled him out for the season.

The timing of the injury was horrendous, as the young striker was beginning to get chances at Chelsea.

It is unclear whether incoming manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to keep him.

There is the case of the returning Romelu Lukaku and what Chelsea do with him.

Several clubs are preparing to ask for Broja on loan, but the Blues would prefer to send him to Portugal.

The 21-year-old has only scored one goal for Chelsea, but there is a feeling there is a higher gear in his game.

Broja impressed during loan spells to Vitesse Arnhem and Southampton with his direct and fearless style of play.

The Blues will undertake a summer clearout that will see many players from their bloated squad leave.

After spending over £600 million over the past year, Chelsea plan to sell homegrown players to recover funds and avoid breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

However, Broja is not one of the names on the list, with the club keen on keeping the striker.

There have been rumours about selling Conor Gallagher and Mason Mount.

However, Mount’s situation could change after Chelsea co-controlling chairman Todd Boehly spoke to him.

Pochettino is a fan of Mount and has urged the Chelsea boss to keep him.
