Fulham Eyes Chelsea’s Striker as Potential January Transfer Target
Sources suggest that the Albanian international, who has found playing time limited at Stamford Bridge, may be exploring a move, possibly on loan.
The motivation behind Fulham’s interest lies in the departure of Aleksandar Mitrovic to Al Hilal in the Saudi Pro League last summer. This void in the squad has reportedly prompted Fulham manager Marco Silva to consider various options, with Armando Broja emerging as a noteworthy candidate.
While the Daily Mail also identifies in-form Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy as a potential target for Fulham, Broja holds the advantage of being Premier League-proven. The 22-year-old notably impressed during a loan spell at Southampton a couple of years ago, showcasing his capabilities on the English top-flight stage.
Despite his undeniable potential and contributions in past loan spells, Broja has faced challenges breaking into the Chelsea starting lineup, partly due to injury setbacks. Fulham, however, sees him as a viable asset who could fill the void left by Mitrovic and contribute to the team’s objectives.
It’s worth noting that Chelsea, with a youthful squad navigating the challenges of mid-table this season, may prioritize a more seasoned striker to replace Broja. The club’s eagerness to secure immediate results could potentially influence their transfer decisions, indicating a preference for an established presence up front.
