Napoli Make Contact for Chelsea Loanee as Precautionary Move

Napoli want to be ready in case they receive giant offers for Victor Osimhen and have laid their eyes on Armando Broja. The center-forward has fared well on loan to Southampton this season and is drawing plenty of interest.

According to Alfredo Pedullà, the Partenopei want to keep the Nigerian star, but he will be in high demand in the summer. Newcastle, Manchester United, and Tottenham have inquired about him. Bayern Munich could track him too if Robert Lewandowski departed. He might represent a solid alternative for sides currently chasing after Erling Haaland. It might be tough for them to resist offers north of €80M.

Napoli have had a meeting to discuss Broja in London in the last few days. They were informed that his price tag is €30M plus add-ons. The 20-year-old has bagged 9 goals across 31 appearances in all competitions in 2021-2022, 6 of which in the Premier League. He reached the double-digit threshold while playing for Vitesse in the past campaign. He has found the target 3 times in 12 caps with Albania.

Napoli had talked to Sassuolo about Gianluca Scamacca before turning their attention to Broja, the transfer market expert adds. While their pursuit of a striker is at its early stages, they are leading the race for Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. He moved back to Dinamo Batumi on loan due to the Ukraine war. The Azzurri are in constant communication with Rubin Kazan, which ask for €15M. The parties are not too far off from reaching an agreement.
