Fans told £55M valued striker could be at Chelsea by end of transfer window

Alex Crook has played down talk of Armando Broja leaving CHELSEA permanently this month, with a loan deal more likely.

The forward is a target for Wolves, West Ham and Fulham this month, as the club have made the decision that he is simply not good enough to lead the attack at this stage of his career.

But according to talkSPORT’s chief football correspondent, a permanent move seems unlikely this month as the financial fair play rules have meant that not much business has been done by many of the clubs.

Speaking in his transfer round-up on Monday’s White And Jordan, Crook said: “The fee that I’ve been given in terms of the money that Chelsea want to recoup is £35million.

“Of course there was talk of £55-£60million for Broja last week – that always seemed a little bit fanciful.

“I’m just not sure that any of those clubs are going to put £35million on the table in this transfer window.

“Instead what we could see happen is a loan until the end of the season with an obligation, but I still think it’ll be dependent on Chelsea bringing in a reinforcement of their own.”

Broja does have all the physical attributes to be a star striker in the Premier League – so it is a shame to see that he is not able to score the goals he needs.

There are quite a few sides that are interested in the man – so his options would be to leave and get some game time – or stay and struggle to make any sort of impact with the Blues.
