Armando Broja: Fulham weigh up Deadline Day move for Chelsea striker

Fulham are weighing up a late move for Chelsea striker Armando Broja after Raul Jimenez was injured in last night's 0-0 draw with Everton.

Jimenez was forced off at half-time with a suspected hamstring strain and Fulham face a nervous wait to discover the extent of the problem.

Broja travelled with the Chelsea squad for tonight's match at Liverpool but he could still leave the club before tomorrow's transfer deadline.

Fulham appear his most likely destination, with Wolves reluctant to make another offer after their loan bid was rejected yesterday. Aston Villa and West Ham had also explored a move for Broja but are not expected to revive their interest this month.

Chelsea want to cash in on Broja to help balance the books. They are not interested in sending him out on loan unless the deal includes an obligation-to-buy clause which will lock in a permanent deal in the summer.

Chelsea initially set an asking price at £50million for the 22-year-old, but that figure could come down substantially before the deadline.

After Jimenez limped off last night, Fulham boss Marco Silva said: "It's not a good sign."
