Everton reportedly retain an interest in signing Armando Broja before the transfer window closes.
The Lowdown: Calvert-Lewin replacement?
Since the news of Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury, the Goodison Park outfit have been reportedly eyeing Broja as his potential replacement.
Hailed as ‘devastating‘ by Albania assistant coach Sergio Porrini, and a player with ‘incredible pace and strength’ by Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp, he made quite the impression while on loan at Southampton from Chelsea last season, scoring nine goals in total and six in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Shopping in Chelsea
As per iNews, the Merseyside club ‘retain an interest’ in signing Broja, whose future at Stamford Bridge is ‘uncertain’.
They could also re-evaluate a potential move for another Blues striker in Michy Batshuayi, but it seems as if Broja would be the priority out of the two.
The Verdict: Get it done
In wake of Calvert-Lewin’s injury, the Toffees need to get a deal for Broja over the line as soon as possible.
They have already sold Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur and loaned out Ellis Simms to Sunderland, while Salomon Rondon is suspended for their first game of the season at home to Chelsea.
Broja has already shown what he can do in the top flight, and at just 20 years of age, the Albania international has such a bright future ahead of him.
