Armando Broja

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly will discuss Armando Broja’s future at the club amid interest from West Ham, Everton and Newcastle.

The trio of Premier League sides have enquired about the Albanian striker and are currently waiting for an answer.

And US tycoon Boehly is set for talks with Blues boss Thomas Tuchel to determine whether Broja is part of his plans for the new season.

The 20-year-old star enjoyed his breakthrough season in English football last year, impressing as he scored nine goals in all competitions for Southampton on loan.

After the departure of Romelu Lukaku on loan to Inter Milan, Broja – and Michy Batshuayi, who is likely to leave this summer – are the only two out-and-out strikers at the club, with Kai Havertz and Timo Werner as the other forward options.

Tuchel is assessing several players who were out on loan last campaign, including central midfielders Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour.

Meanwhile, Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen has rejected the chance to replace Tyrell Malacia at Feyenoord.

The promising Dutch star, 20, received plaudits for his performances on loan at Championship side Coventry last season but has now spurned the opportunity to join the Eredivisie side.

Malacia became the first signing of Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United revolution on Tuesday, joining for £14.6million from Arne Slot’s side.
