Chelsea to open Armando Broja contract talks as European clubs eye transfer after striker’s stunning season at Vitesse

CHELSEA are reportedly poised to open contract talks with Armando Broja.

The rising star has impressed during his loan spell at Vitesse and Chelsea want to secure his long-term future.

Broja has been a revelation this season for Vitesse, scoring ten goals in the Eredivisie.

The 19-year-old talent's form has made a big impression and Champions League finalists Chelsea want to tie him down to a new long-term deal.

His prolific form for the Blues' academy helped earn his loan move and the teenager will be in demand after his exploits in the Netherlands.

Broja is contracted at Chelsea until the end of next season but the Blues want to offer him an extended deal after his impressive contribution for Vitesse.

Thomas Tuchel has made a huge impact at Stamford Bridge but the German wants to focus on enhancing their attack next season.


Tuchel has based their success on their defensive solidity but he is reportedly mulling over a change of formation.

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss is considering switching to a 4-2-4 formation to unleash the club's most talented attackers.

This potential switch could boost Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic in offering them additional game time.
