AS Roma add Chelsea’s Armando Broja to striker wishlist

AS Roma have identified Chelsea striker Armando Broja as a potential target this summer, reports Gianluca Di Marzio.

With the transfer window closing in two weeks, Roma have been scouring the market for a new centre-forward to cope with the absence of injured Tammy Abraham. 

Duvan Zapata and Marcos Leonardo are on their wishlist, but the Italian giants are now looking at Broja as an alternative target.

However, negotiations with the Blues could be tricky, as they have already turned down AC Milan’s loan offer for Broja.

They are determined to keep hold of the Albanian international due to the lack of striker options in the squad, with summer signing Nicholas Jackson the only other option available.

Real Betis forward Willian Jose is another option for Roma.

The Brazilian forward was previously wanted by Jose Mourinho during his managerial stint at Tottenham Hotspur.

The 31-year-old joined Betis on loan in 2021 before making his move permanent last summer.

Willian Jose is not the first choice for Manuel Pellegrini, having started in only six games in La Liga last season.

Roma are closing in on a double swoop for Paris Saint-Germain midfielders Renato Sanches and Leandro Paredes, who have arrived in the Italian capital to undergo medical tests.

The Giallorossi have parted ways with Nemanja Matic and Roger Ibanez while adding Evan Ndicka, Houssem Aouar and Rasmus Kristensen to their ranks in the summer transfer window.

Roma will face Salernitana in their Serie A opener this weekend.
