Chelsea's Broja Dilemma: The Deadline Day Loan Standoff

Chelsea's Broja Dilemma: The Deadline Day Loan Standoff

Chelsea is open to letting Armando Broja go on loan, but with a catch—they demand a substantial loan fee and assurances about his playing time. Sky Sports News reports that Chelsea is looking for a loan fee around £5 million. Despite interest from Wolves and Fulham, Wolves might not proceed if the loan fee remains at that level.

The transfer deadline day for Chelsea seems more focused on outgoing deals than incoming ones. Talks are ongoing with Fulham for Broja, but a significant gap in valuation persists for any potential permanent deal. Additionally, Chelsea's sister club, Strasbourg, is in discussions to loan Andrey Santos.

Jhon Duran and Callum Wilson were considered as striking options, but as of now, both are expected to stay at Villa and Newcastle, respectively.

Wolves and Fulham continue to express interest in Armando Broja, but Chelsea's stringent conditions for the deal make it uncertain at this point. Fulham, while keen on Broja, finds Chelsea's valuation too high. There's a substantial gap between what Chelsea wants and what Fulham is willing to pay.

Broja, who has scored twice in 19 games this season after recovering from a knee injury, remains a sought-after player. Chelsea rejected a loan offer from Wolves earlier in the week, indicating a preference for deals that involve a permanent transfer, either in this transfer window or during the summer.
