Chelsea reject AC Milan approach for Armando Broja, striker set to stay despite summer overhaul

Chelsea will reject an approach from AC Milan for striker Armando Broja, according to Standard Sport.

They are keen on keeping the centre-forward, who is part of manager Mauricio Pochettino’s plans for the coming season.

The Albanian international is still recovering from the ACL injury that ruled him out for a chunk of last season. 

However, the club is awaiting his complete recovery so he can rejoin the squad.

Chelsea have rejected the chance to sign Dusan Vlahovic from Juventus and will use Broja as the back-up for Nicolas Jackson.

The Senegal international started his first Premier League game yesterday and showed promising signs despite missing three big chances.

Chelsea are also close to securing striker Deivid Washington from Brazilian club Santos, but the young forward will likely join RC Strasbourg on loan. 

The Blues are still after Montpellier striker Elye Wahi, but he will also join the French outfit if the deal goes through. 

Chelsea face stiff competition for Wahi’s signature with Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, AS Monaco and West Ham United also in the race.

The Blues still need attacking reinforcements and are pursuing Crystal Palace man Michael Olise.

They are close to finally capturing Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo and remain in talks for Southampton’s Romeo Lavia.

Chelsea are finalising some departures, with Callum Hudson-Odoi set to join Fulham.

They also have more fringe stars to sell, including Malang Sarr, Hakim Ziyech and Romelu Lukaku. 

Chelsea could look to sell homegrown talents Trevoh Chalobah and Conor Gallagher to balance their books.
