Armando Broja's future at Chelsea remains uncertain as the summer transfer window edges closer.

Broja spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham but featured eight times for a total of just 80 minutes for the Craven Cottage club. Before the departure, Broja scored two goals for Chelsea including one which came in a victory at home to Fulham in the Premier League.

Rumours that Broja could be available for transfer have been swirling for months. The striker struggled for game time under former manager Mauricio Pochettino and it remains to be seen if that will change with new boss Enzo Maresca next term.

The majority of the reports are speculating that Broja could leave Stamford Bridge this summer on a permanent deal.

Some rumours have suggested that Chelsea have placed a £35 million asking price on the striker, with other players such as Trevoh Chalobah, Conor Gallagher and Ian Maatsen also having the potential to leave the club this summer.

According to The Athletic, Chelsea are in no rush to try and part ways with Broja this summer. The report also hinted that a decision on the striker's future could come after the European Championships.

Broja is set to star for Albania at Euro 2024 where he is expected to lead the line for his country in group matches against Italy, Croatia and Spain. It has been claimed that Chelsea will hope that Broja enjoys a successful tournament so that it will increase the fee that they can demand for the striker's signature.

It remains to be seen what interest will be generated for Broja when the transfer window officially opens next week and over the course of Euro 2024. Chelsea already have Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku who can play as a striker, while Cole Palmer finished last season as the club's top goal scorer with 25 goals in all competitions.
