Milan Considering Concrete Move for Chelsea Outcast

Milan might need to sign two strikers this summer considering Luka Jovic’s uncertain future, and Armando Broja is currently the main candidate to replace him. The Rossoneri are closing in on Joshua Zirkzee but would need another man if the Serb didn’t stick around.

Per Calciomercato, Chelsea are seeking a permanent sale after a loan spell at Fulham. The Albanian marksman, who will soon face Italy in the Euro 2024’s opener, has a €20M price tag. Chelsea need to cash in on some assets before June 30th due to financial limitations.

Milan and the Premier League powerhouse have been in touch to discuss the Broja deal in the last few days. Cercle Bruges’ Kevin Denkey is a potential fallback.

The 22-year-old, who was coming off an ACL tear, has appeared 27 times in the most recent campaign, scoring twice. He suffered the massive injury back in December 2022 and returned on the pitch in late September. He joined Fulham temporarily a couple of months later.

The two clubs have brokered several deals in recent windows, for instance, Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Fikayo Tomori.

Our Take on Milan and Broja

If the Rossoneri manage to win the race for Zirkzee, they should target a center-forward with different traits, either a pure no.9 or a bruiser who could pair well with the Dutchman when they want to be more aggressive. The Chelsea outcast would fit the mold, but his price tag is a tad expensive considering his recent seasons. The decision to keep Jovi would be more financially-driven than technical.
