Everton are reportedly now eyeing up a move for Armando Broja after Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s latest injury setback.
The Lowdown: Calvert-Lewin injury
As per Football Insider, Calvert-Lewin is now facing up to three months out with a knee injury that he picked up in training.
Scans have shown that it is as worse as originally feared, with the striker allegedly having torn his lateral collateral ligament.
The Latest: Broja interest
Co-writing in his latest piece for The Athletic, journalist Patrick Boyland has now revealed that the Goodison Park outfit still hold an interest in Broja, and have continued to explore the possibility of either a loan move or a permanent deal.
However, Chelsea are yet to decide whether they would be willing to let him go or keep him for next season.
The Verdict: Get it done!
With the news of Calvert-Lewin’s injury, it leaves the Merseyside club dangerously short up top.
Richarlison has been sold to Tottenham Hotspur, while Salomon Rondon is suspended for their opening Premier League game at home to Chelsea.
Hailed as ‘devastating‘ by Albania assistant coach Sergio Porrini, 20-year-old Broja already boasts four senior goals in 14 caps for his country, on top of the nine that he managed while on loan at Southampton from Chelsea last season (Transfermarkt).
Given the top-flight experience that he gained, the six-foot-three colossus would be ideal to come into Frank Lampard’s team straight away, and could even line up against his parent club if he left on a permanent deal.
