AC Milan step up interest in Armando Broja

Serie A giants AC Milan are reportedly ready to intensify their efforts to sign 22-year-old Chelsea prospect Armando Broja this summer.

According to a report by Italian outlet Tutto Mercato Web, Armando Broja is the subject of interest from AC Milan. The Serie A giants are keen on signing a striker in the summer transfer window in the summer transfer window after parting ways with Olivier Giroud. And they are ready to step up their interest in the 22-year-old Chelsea prospect.

The Armando Broja story

Armando Broja is one of the best prospects to emerge from Chelsea’s fabled Cobham division in the last half a decade. However, regular game time with the first-team squad has eluded the Albanian international. While he was exceptional for Southampton in the 2021/22 season, fitness issues have hampered him in the last two years.

Broja joined Fulham on loan from Chelsea for the second half of the 2023/24 season. However, the 22-year-old managed only 80 minutes of game time across eight matches for the West London club, providing just one assist. The underwhelming spell with the Cottagers might have sealed the youngster’s fate at Chelsea.

The Blues are ready to part ways with Broja in the summer transfer window after his failure to establish a foothold in the first-team squad at Stamford Bridge. The young prospect has no shortage of suitors, with several Premier League clubs vying for his signature. Meanwhile, AC Milan will look to take him to Italy in the coming weeks.

Serie A move on the horizon?

AC Milan’s interest in Armando Broja is understandable. The Rossoneri will part ways with Olivier Giroud as a free agent in the summer transfer window, with the veteran French striker moving to MLS. So, they are scouring the market for a striker, with Joshua Zirkzee being their top target.

However, the Serie A giants want to sign two strikers in the summer transfer window, bringing Broja into the picture. AC Milan will look to step up the interest in the 22-year-old Chelsea prospect, with talks between the parties on the cards.

It will be interesting to see if AC Milan can beat the competition to secure Armando Broja’s services. The Rossoneri will hope that the talks with Chelsea progress smoothly to bring the Albanian international to San Siro.
