According to reports, Chelsea have placed Armando Broja on its transfer list

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has recently addressed the swirling rumours about the future of striker Armando Broja at Stamford Bridge. Amidst reports suggesting that Broja could be leaving the club this month, Pochettino has stated that there is no news regarding such a potential departure.

Armando Broja, one of Chelsea's academy graduates, has been linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge. Recent reports have indicated that Chelsea may have lowered their asking price for the 22-year-old striker and might even consider a loan offer. According to reports, an offer of £35 million could potentially sway the Blues into letting go of their young talent.

However, in response to these speculations, Pochettino clarified that there is currently no news concerning Broja's possible exit from Chelsea.

Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino, said:

"Armando Broja leaving? At the moment, no news. It's quiet. It's a good thing. We are working really well."

Chelsea are mired in FFP turmoil and looking to sell players

Selling off one of their academy graduates like Broja for a significant fee would likely benefit Chelsea’s FFP situation. This move could provide some financial relief and flexibility for the club in terms of managing its resources while adhering to UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.

The Albania international has made quite an impact since his graduation from Chelsea's academy. In this season alone, he has made 17 appearances across various competitions and contributed two goals along with one assist. Throughout his tenure with the senior team so far, he played in 36 matches where he scored three times and provided two assists.

Broja is contracted with Chelsea until the end of 2027-28 season and holds an estimated market value standing at €18 million.

The Blues are likely to let go Broja for around £35 million

Initially setting their sights on £50 million for letting go of Broja, Chelsea has reportedly reduced their asking price. The Premier League club is now said to be open to an offer of £35 million for the striker. This move could potentially open up opportunities for other clubs interested in acquiring the young talent.

While rumours continue to circulate about Armando Broja's future at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino maintains that there is no concrete news regarding his potential departure. As sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts keep a close eye on this developing story, only time will tell what lies ahead for this promising player and his career at Chelsea.
