Armando Broja is a wanted man with Newcastle United and Everton ramping up their interest in the Chelsea striker.

Broja spent last season on loan at Southampton and showed real potential even though his goal record was just six in 32 games.

The Albanian showed an ability to fight with any centre back who wanted a battle or outpace them if given the chance.

Broja could become a complete striker in the coming years and it’s no surprise to see major interest in his signature.

West Ham United looked to be closing in on Broja last week but the deal seemingly stalled.

The Hammers have instead gone for Sassuolo hitman Gianluca Scamacca as they chase a big-money investment up front.

First-team action at Chelsea doesn’t look likely and there is major Premier League interest even with West Ham seemingly out of the race.

iNews now report that Everton are ready to progress talks with Chelsea over a deal to sign Broja.

Chelsea may be open to helping out Lampard with a loan deal, given that a permanent deal could be out of reach.

The same report claims that Newcastle are also advancing their interest in Broja and are chasing a loan deal.

Newcastle have been struggling to sign a striker this summer with huge fees expected for the likes Alexander Isak and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

A loan deal for Broja would give Newcastle time to identify other targets for next summer, whilst offering a youthful option to compete with Chris Wood and Callum Wilson.

The start of the Premier League season is drawing ever closer and Broja will want his future settled sooner rather than later with Everton and Newcastle both pushing.
