Chelsea are ready to sell Armando Broja permanently during the ongoing transfer window amidst interest from West Ham United and Wolves.

Broja is a product of the Chelsea academy but he’s failed to become a mainstay in the Blues frontline. This season, he’s scored just one goal in 453 minutes of Premier League football and it seems like Poch is ready to cash in on him.

Initially, it was said that Chelsea would only sell Armando Broja in January if they find a suitable replacement but as per the latest reports, Pochettino is going to green-light a sale, even if he does not get a new striker by the end of this month.

Wolves and West Ham United have shown an interest in the 22-year-old so a deal should have been easy but the Blues are demanding a transfer fee of around £50 million.

Rumours are suggesting that Chelsea have set their valuation keeping in mind that Manchester United had paid £72 million for Rasmus Hoijlund and the fact that all of their January targets have a massive fee on their shoulders. Their latest target is Evan Ferguson but Brighton are demanding around £100 million for the Irish forward.

Armando Broja won’t mind leaving Chelsea because he’s understood that he has no future at the club but this ridiculous price tag will be a big obstacle in his exit.

The Hammers and Wolves are serious about signing the forward but there’s no way they will agree to pay £50 million for a single player during the middle of the season.

Armando Broja has started just six league games this season for Chelsea and overall in 36 games, he’s netted only three goals. He spent one loan season with Southampton where he scored nine goals in 38 matches and all these stats just do not justify the £50 million price tag.

Chelsea’s attacking arrivals will not depend on Broja’s sale which is a good thing but if the London outfit are serious about offloading him this month then they have to lower their financial demands because neither of the two interested sides has such a big transfer budget.

The other thing that Poch’s side can do is if they let Armando Broja leave on a loan deal with an obligation to buy during the summer transfer window.
