And Newcastle’s spending spree might be far from done, with Eddie Howe keen to bolster his squad options ahead of the club’s bid to avoid Premier League relegation.
Broja was loaned out to Dutch side Vitesse for a successful spell in the 2020-21 season, with the Chelsea starlet scoring 11 times in 34 appearances.
The 20-year-old striker, who signed his first professional contract with Chelsea in 2020, is spending a season-long loan at Southampton for the current campaign.
Broja has impressed for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men after scoring five times in 18 Premier League appearances.
Southampton are keen to keep hold of Broja beyond his loan spell ending, with the Saints eyeing up a potential £30m offer to make his move permanent.
The Premier League club face tough competition in the race to sign Broja, as TEAMtalk now reports Wolves, Everton and Leeds are all interested in the player.
However, TuttoMercatoWeb (via CaughtOffside) claims that Newcastle will hijack any approach for Broja with a huge £40m bid.
Broja is under contract with the Blues until 2026, but it is believed the Blues are reluctant to sell the Wolves, Everton and Leeds target.
According to reports, Chelsea will reconsider their position on the Albania international in the summer after his loan spell with Southampton ends.
Hasenhuttl has urged Broja to focus on his football rather than the speculation surrounding his future.
The Southampton boss ruled out a permanent January move for Broja, but he hasn’t ruled out the Saints making an approach for the Chelsea striker in the summer.
“To be honest, it doesn’t affect me massively because I know he’s here until the end of the season,” Hasenhuttl said.
“We have enough time to talk to them, to talk about our future with him.
“Let this guy play football, let this guy do their job. I think it’s very important for the young players that they can develop their game in a calmness and not with these hectic rumours around; it doesn’t help any young player, especially not him.
“This is what we try to do, we try to calm everything down because he should concentrate on his job and that is what he’s here for.”
