Paul Gilmour provided an update on Armando Broja’s future at Chelsea live from Stamford Bridge this morning.

The 22-year-old could leave before tonight’s deadline, with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Fulham expressing interest.

Earlier in the transfer window, Gary O’Neil’s team had a loan offer for Armando Broja rejected.

Fulham, led by Marco Silva, expressed late interest in signing the 22-year-old but were thwarted by Chelsea’s demands.

However, Chelsea has subsequently modified their attitude on Broja and is now willing to let the striker move on a straight loan basis.

And this could lead to the Albanian transferring to Fulham or Wolves before tonight’s deadline.

Broja could leave Chelsea with Fulham and Wolves keen

Gilmour spoke with Sky Sports News on Broja’s future, following Chelsea’s recent U-turn.

“He’s the one everyone is looking at today as a potential outgoing at Chelsea,” the journalist stated. “He was an unused replacement at Anfield last night, which is typically a red flag that something is going on, and it is.

“Both Fulham and Wolves are quite interested. Wolves’ loan bid for him was rejected earlier this window.

“Fulham had a valuation in mind for a permanent transfer, or at the very least a loan with the intention of making it permanent. But that didn’t really meet Chelsea’s assessment.

“It seemed like he’d remain. But according to what we’re hearing this morning, which was first reported by David Ornstein and is as accurate as ever, Chelsea may be poised to modify their terms and consider a simple loan with a loan fee. Broja would then return in the summer.

“Really interesting to keep an eye on that because both Fulham and Wolves are in the market for a striker on this final day and Armando Broja, is right at the heart of it.”

Broja was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s devastating 4-1 defeat at Anfield last night.

The Chelsea academy product has made 13 Premier League appearances this season, scoring just once.

Broja would benefit from going on loan again and gaining significant first-team experience.

He impressed during his time at Southampton during the 2021-22 season. Chelsea’s shift in stance may now necessitate a move to Craven Cottage or Molineux.

This is certainly one to keep an eye on ahead of tonight’s deadline, and it would not be surprising if Broja signed a loan deal with Wolves or Fulham.
