Chelsea in talks with Southampton over permanent transfer for Armando Broja with Saints desperate to keep loanee striker

SOUTHAMPTON have entered talks with Chelsea over the possibility of signing Armando Broja permanently.

The 20-year-old striker has netted five times for the Saints this season in the Premier League since making a loan move from Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Southampton want Armando Broja on a permanent transfer from Chelsea

The star has been shining on-loan on the South Coast this term from the Blues

The 20-year-old forward was the star performer for Southampton as they swept aside Brentford 4-1 last week.

Broja headed to the South Coast on a season-long loan at the start of the campaign.

That was after he penned a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has already publicly admitted he wants to turn that move into one long-term.

Chelsea are yet to make a decision on whether they see the Albanian international as a part of their long-term plans.

But Saints are aware clubs will pounce in the summer if Broja becomes available and are keen on the deal.

Broja has previously spent time on loan in Holland at Vitesse Arnhem.

He scored five in 16 games in the Dutch top-flight last-term.

The ace has ten goals in 24 games for club and country this season.
