Chelsea have their work cut out for themselves in the summer transfer window. For once, though, the club officials must focus more on player outgoings rather than incomings. The squad seems to finally be gelling, particularly if 2024 is anything to go by. To improve squad harmony for the upcoming season and under new management, Chelsea must sell more than they sign.

One player who is on the cusp of being sold is Armando Broja. The English-born striker who represents the Albanian national team has not had the easiest time at Chelsea since being promoted to their first team in 2020. Having been on three different loan spells, it does not look like there's a future for Broja at Stamford Bridge.

Given the injury to Nkunku earlier in the season, his services were called upon more often than usual but the academy graduate failed to make a name for himself with the opportunities handed to him. Hence, he is at risk of being sold in the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to a claim from journalist Ben Jacobs, Armando Broja is considered by three different Premier League clubs - Wolves, Crystal Palace and Everton. However, failing those, Broja is also subject to interest from Monaco, Milan and Saudi side Al-Shabab. It is believed that Broja could bank Chelsea around £25m, despite them previously quoting double that price.

A move away would be Broja's best bet. With Christopher Nkunku back in the side along with Nicolas Jackson, Broja's chances of starting are very slim. They are much slimmer when Cole Palmer is also in consideration at striker, being Chelsea's best player of the season after all.

Chelsea could do with raising some funds. £25m seems to be cheap for a young player with over 60 Premier League appearances already. However, if it is the best Chelsea can get, then they must accept before Broja's value decreases even more.
