Chelsea is set to open contract negotiations with Armando Groja, the 19-year old who scored 11 goals in 36 appearances during his debut season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem. He played a key role in Vitesse Arnhem’s fourth place finish in the Eredivisie.
Head coach, Thomas Tuchel is said to be considering including the teenage forward in his Premier League squad next season, as the team will require new forward options for the 2021-22 campaign, with talks of Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud likely to depart Stamford Bridge.
Broja did however, sign professional terms with Chelsea in 2020, agreeing terms on a deal that is set to expire next summer. Despite interest from a host of top European clubs, Tuchel plans to bring the Albania international back to west London.
Broja made his professional debut in 2020 under Frank Lampard in a 4-0 victory at home against Everton.
In 2020 he also made his debut for the Albanian national team, and was included in their most recent squad as he played in last month’s 2-0 defeat to England.
