Chelsea have acted quickly to replace the injured Armando Broja.
The Albian striker sustained an ACL injury playing against Aston Villa in a mid-season friendly earlier this week, and it has now been confirmed that he will miss the rest of the season.
And, with both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kai Havertz struggling for form and fitness this season, that has left Graham Potter potentially short in forward areas.
Therefore, to fill the gap, Chelsea are close to agreeing a deal to sign striker David Datro Fofana from Norwegian club Molde, beating Brighton, Potter’s old club, to his signature in the process.
The 19 year old, who has scored 15 goals and provided a further five assists in 24 appearances this season is set to be their first signing of the January transfer window.
