 The sublime performance in Southampton shirt gives the 20-year-old striker the opportunity to return to the Blues shirt.

Chelsea owns many bright rough gems, Armando Broja is one of them. The Albanian striker convinced the experts after a series of excellent performances in the Southampton club shirt. Broja is currently playing for the home team at St Mary’s Stadium on loan from Chelsea.

Last summer, the Blues signed blockbuster Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan. The presence of the invisible Belgian striker made Broja’s chance to return to Chelsea shirt extinguished. However, the time has rekindled with Broja.

Lukaku’s erratic performance this season makes coach Thomas Tuchel need to plan to find a backup factor. In that context, Broja promises to be given a chance by Tuchel if he continues to have a good performance for the rest of this season.

Sharing with the Evening Standard, former teammate Thomas Bruns said that Broja’s return to Chelsea would not be far away. “He considers Mason Mount an example of striving. Mount once shone in the Vitesse shirt. Currently, Mount is the mainstay of Chelsea,” said Thomas Bruns.

Broja has special qualities. I predict he needs four years to get a regular starting place at Chelsea. That is also Broja’s goal. Chelsea will need a new striker if Lukaku leaves. I think Broja will be able to take a place in the Blues squad,” emphasized Bruns.
