Chelsea are expected to receive a number of bids for Armando Broja when his loan deal expires at Southampton, according to reports in England.
The Albanian international has been in excellent form for the south coast club, having racked up seven goals and one assist in 21 appearances so far this season.
West Ham and even Arsenal are believed to be interested in taking Broja on a permanent basis, along with the Saints themselves, but supporters on Twitter think the Blues should look to keep hold of the 20-year-old:
If they sell either him or Gallagher I’m done with this club

Hope we’ll be ready to reject them all.

He signed a new contract with Chelsea. The clubs interested should get above £100million and Chelsea must have a buy back clause of £40million on him with a first right of refusal. That is if the clubs interested really wants him.

From next season he should be first team striker…

Look what he’s doing to in the EPL right now so for Southampton, let’s for say he was playing for Dortmund and lighting it up they would be calling him the next Haaland or at the least Vlahovic and be worth 70-100m DO NOT SELL THIS KID!!

He is the type of striker that we are crying out for. Has all the attributes we lack, plus at only 20 will keep improving. If he keeps up his form and goals, Tuchel indicates that he will return in the summer to #CFC. If not a further years loan may be an option.

As we have seen with Tino Livramento, Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori and others recently, Chelsea are open to selling their academy players, although they generally include buyback clauses in their contracts.
Whether it will be the same with Broja, we shall have to wait and see. Considering how impressive he has been for Southampton, you would have to think that he has shown enough to deserve a chance in the first team setup next campaign.
