Chelsea Send £30 Million Transfer Message To Napoli, West Ham, Atalanta And Everton Over Armando Broja Pursuit

Chelsea have told interested suitors in Armando Broja that they will need to wait before any decision his made over his Stamford Bridge future, according to reports.

Broja will report back to Cobham for pre-season at the start of next month when Chelsea begin their preparations for the 2022/23 campaign.

The 20-year-old returns to his parent clubs after spending the season down on the south coast at Southampton under Ralph Hasenhuttl's tutelage.

Broja netted nine goals and registered one assist for the Saints during his first season in the Premier League and as a result has attracted interest from clubs across Europe.

Southampton have made their interest publicly clear, while West Ham and Everton are keen, as are Napoli and Atalanta.

Saints boss Hasenhuttl said back in April: "There is no question, and it is not surprising that I want him to stay here another year.

“I know this would be good for him.”

Thomas Tuchel wants to take a look at Broja in pre-season before deciding on his future, and as reported by Goal, Chelsea are backing their manager as expected.

The club's preference is to wait until pre-season before making their choice over whether he stays in west London or leaves for another team.

Broja will be given the chance to fight for a place in the side across pre-season but has been given no assurances by the club or coaching staff that he will be given that opportunity to prove his credentials.

West Ham are bracing themselves to make a £30 million bid for the Albanian forward, however will have to wait until Chelsea make their final call, which is now likely to only come as early as next month.

Broja's camp are claimed to be speaking with several clubs over his future as he assesses his options this summer.

Tuchel already confirmed last month, prior to the club having their sanctions lifted following their £4.25 billion takeover, that Broja and Conor Gallagher, along with many other loanees, would be looked at in pre-season.

"First of all they will come back because they are our players. When we give them on loan we do this for them but also for us to have better players, more experienced players back.

"They are our players and I want to have them in pre-season and then we decide what’s going on.

"It’s heavily linked to them, to how they integrate and what they do and what our ideas are for them and what they want to reach.

"It’s heavily linked to our sanctions, situation around the club. It is too early to predict the future for them given the role of the whole season but they will be back for pre-season, that’s for sure."
