Chelsea open contract talks with young striker

Chelsea have opened talks with young striker Armando Broja over a new deal and he may well find himself added to their Premier League squad next season.

The 19-year old began his career with Spurs before joining the Chelsea academy as an 8-year old.

He spent last season on loan with Holland with Vitesse where he impressed, scoring 11 goals in 34 appearances for the Eredivisie side.

He had previously made his Premier League debut when  he came as a slate substitute in a win against Everton just before lockdown last year.

Although born in England he represents Albania at international level, and has six senior caps for them.

Now with several fringe players being allowed to move on this summer, including Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud, that will free up space for Broja, who is out of contract next summer.

His form with Vitesse prompted interest from a number of clubs in Europe, but Chelsea are convinced enough by his talent to offer him a role in the top flight.
