Howe could be tempted to bring Broja to St James’ Park as part of the club’s revolution

At only 20 years old, it is clear that several clubs are buying his potential.

According to Goal, the Premier League duo are keen to sign the player but face competition from AC Milan, Inter Milan and Napoli.

While widespread interest in his services could lead to a move, Broja remains highly rated at Stamford Bridge with Thomas Tuchel suggesting all of the club’s young players will have the chance to fight for a place in his plans during the pre- season.

He said: “First of all, they will come back because they are our players.

“When we loan them out, we do it for them but also so that we can bring back better and more experienced players. They are our players and I want to have them in pre-season and then we decide what happens.

“It’s strongly linked to them, how they fit in, what they do, our ideas for them and what they want to achieve. It is strongly linked to our sanctions, to the situation around the club.

Moyes could offer European football to Broja’s first team if he moves to east London

But there’s still a chance Broja will be part of Chelsea’s plans next season

“It’s too early to predict the future for them given the role all season, but they’ll be back for pre-season for sure.”

However, speaking specifically about Broja in January, Tuchel specifically praised the striker.

He said: “Armando is getting better and better.

“He’s a very unique player with very unique assets in his game. His speed, he’s tough. He’s a goalscorer.”
