Premier League side Wolves want to sign Chelsea striker Armando Broja on loan with an option to make it permanent this summer, according to reports.

Broja faces an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge this January and it is thought that the Blues will let him depart if they are able to bring in a new striker.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of players including Aston Villa’s Jhon Duran as well as Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and Brentford’s Ivan Toney.

Should Chelsea succeed in their quest to land a new striker, it could result in Broja linking up with Gary O’Neil at Molineux, The Guardian have reported.

Broja has been unable to build momentum at Chelsea since making his comeback from a knee injury this term.

The Albania international started Chelsea’s last match in the Premier League – a 1-0 victory over west London rivals Fulham – but he was subbed off in the 66th minute after a disappointing performance.

Broja came through Chelsea’s academy and has made a total of 36 senior appearances to date.

The 22-year-old impressed on loan at Southampton in the 2021-22 season, producing nine goals across 38 appearances.

Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino urged Broja to ‘change his body language’ following the FA Cup win over Preston earlier this month.

‘He should smile, be positive and change his body language,’ Pochettino said. ‘I think when he performs well and finds the net he will improve. It’s important for the team and for him to improve his confidence.’
