For some, it may be surprising to see Armando Broja in this list. To be fair to the Albanian striker, he hasn’t had the best of luck with injuries so it’s tough to fairly evaluate his ability to contribute to this team. However, you can only bank on someone’s potential for so long until they actually have to prove it. Even when he’s on the pitch, Broja’s output hasn’t exactly screamed must keep world class talent, with two goals and one assist in 23 appearances for CFC’s senior side.
The 22-year old’s talent and attributes are capable of helping this young Blues side given the right amount of time but with every minute that Broja is out, there’s Nicolas Jackson steadily staking his claim as Pochettino’s primary man up top. Also worth mentioning is what becomes of the Albanian’s prospects once Chelsea buy the world class forward that they are reportedly in the market for come next year. Broja then becomes third choice striker at best and a glaring surplus to requirements. Hopefully the 22-year old’s injury woes alleviate so we can see his true potential over a long run of games in blue. However, if they don’t, it may be sound for Chelsea to consider his sale.
