CHELSEA have spent £97.5million to sign Romelu Lukaku in the summer, but his successor may be free.
Armando Broja did not score for Southampton in their 1-1 draw against Manchester City in Saturday’s televised game, but he certainly turned plenty of heads with his performance.
Broja is not the first Chelsea loanee to start a clamour for his return amongst fans – indeed, Conor Gallagher got there first with his showings for Crystal Palace this season.
But the difference between the two talented youngsters is that Chelsea are arguably in need of a powerful, dynamic centre-forward, rather than a central midfielder.
While Gallagher will have to compete with Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and more upon his return to Stamford Bridge, the route to Tuchel’s side is potentially more open for Broja.
