Chelsea are open to allowing striker Armando Broja to leave the club this month, according to reports.

The 22-year-old has made his return this season after a lengthy absence on the sidelines following an ACL injury sustained in Abu Dhabi in December 2022 during the World Cup.

Broja, who has featured 17 times in all competitions this season under Mauricio Pochettino and scored twice, has been the subject of interest from Premier League clubs, including Fulham, West Ham and Wolves.

Wolves were recently linked with the Albanian forward and open to exploring an initial loan deal in January with the option of making the move permanent in the summer.

However, it was claimed Broja’s future would likely be hinged on Chelsea bringing in another forward this month amid links to Victor Osimhen, Evan Ferguson and Jhon Duran.

But a new report from David Ornstein of The Athletic has outlined Chelsea’s fresh stance despite Nicolas Jackson being away at the African Cup of Nations and Christopher Nkunku hoping to return to training this week following a hip problem.

Chelsea are now willing to let Broja leave this month regardless of their striker situation should a suitable offer be received.

Broja recently netted in the 4-0 win in the FA Cup third round over Preston North End and was heavily praised by Pochettino post-match.

As quoted by The Athletic, on Broja’s goal, Pochettino said: “It was really important for him. I need to be honest, he needs to use this type of game to score and to feel the net and to improve. Improve not only in his fitness, but his body language also. He needs to step up and to go forward and to move. He needs to be more positive.

“The potential is amazing. We’re talking about one of the young strikers in England and in Europe with the most potential. But the problem now is he needs to push himself, and we’re going to try to help him to realise that never it is enough.

“He was nearly one year away (injured) and of course now he needs time. It’s not easy for him to perform and to be at the level we expect. Our expectation is massive and we really believe in him. We’re going to push him to improve every day.”
