Everton strongly interested in signing Armando Broja

Everton are showing strong interest in signing Chelsea striker Armando Broja. 

The Toffees are looking to add depth in their forward areas, and they have been heavily linked with a move for the 22-year-old throughout the summer.

According to Jacob Steinberg, Chelsea are looking to offload more players from their squad to stay within the PSR limit.

The Guardian journalist reported on 30 June that Chelsea could now sell the Albania forward Broja to Everton.

The London outfit are looking to shift players before Sunday night’s (30 June) accounting deadline and Broja is up for sale.

While Everton retain strong interest in the 23-cap Albanian international, there is still work to be done on that deal. AC Milan, Bologna and Wolves are also monitoring the forward.

The Toffees have been very busy in the summer transfer window so far. They have offloaded Lewis Dobbin and Ben Godfrey and the club feel they have done enough to stay within the Premier League’s financial limits (PSR).

Everton have also signed Tim Iroegbunam from Aston Villa,while Jack Harrison has joined on loan from Leeds United. They have also agreed a deal for Marseille attacking midfielder Iliman Ndiaye, who has completed his medical.

Sean Dyche will definitely look to sign a new striker this summer. Dominic Calvert-Lewin was linked with a move to Newcastle but the deal collapsed due to the player’s wage demands. He has one year remaining on his current deal and has not signed a contract extension at Goodison Park.

Beto joined Goodison Park last season on a big-money deal from Udinese but he has yet to make a huge impact. While Everton are under no pressure to sell him, the striker is drawing attention from clubs in Turkey.

Broja has failed to impress under Mauricio Pochettino, but he is a fantastic young striker. It will be interesting to see if Everton can produce funds to get his signature or can convince Chelsea to allow the player join them on loan for the rest of the season.
