Everton retain an interest in Broja

| 12/06/2024 13comments  |  Jump to last

Everton have been strongly linked with a move for Chelsea's out-of-favour striker Armando Broja and have held talks with the London club over a potential deal.

The Athletic are the most reliable outlet to have carried the story, claiming that there has been dialogue with Chelsea over the Albania international but any transfer is dependent on the Toffees first raising funds through other deals.

Broja is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and looking for a new club after an unsuccessful loan spell at Fulham this past season.

A potential move to Monaco this summer has reportedly stalled and while reports that Everton were offering Chelsea around £30m for the striker were wide of the mark, it does seem as though the two clubs are in contact over a possible deal.

However, Todd Boely and his hierarchy are reportedly in no rush to tie up a deal before Euro 2024 where Broja could put himself in the shop window with a strong showing for Albania.

The Athletic report suggests that Dominic Calvert-Lewin may need to be sold before Broja is an option for the Blues. The long-time Everton centre-forward is entering the final year of his current contract but is in negotiations over a new deal.

Everton made a concerted effort to land Broja on a season-long loan two years ago when Frank Lampard was preparing for his first full season in charge but could not persuade Chelsea to part with him.

Not for me, certainly not at the 30 million quoted. Call me crazy but I think Beto will come good next season.

You may be crazy Paul, but Broja over Beto is definitely not the answer.

Thought I read somewhere that Everton have denied any interest in Broja.

Come on Domenic get that contract signed.

A decent enough player like but for £30 million!!!

Rather have the lad at Blackburn, a striker who had a good Cup run who also looked good throughout the Championship season and most importantly of all. Knows how to finish!!

“Where Broja could put himself in the shop window with a strong showing for Albania.”

I wouldn't be surprised to see Beto gone (loan or sale) this summer to avoid triggering the fee we postponed.

Broja would be a decent loan – and a decent buy too possibly. Given Chelsea's urgent need to sell and the accounting win of selling home-grown players, he might be available for something like £18M with a % of any future sale.

He won't command the sort of fee talked of after his successful Saints loan. He's had a very serious injury in the meantime and only scored twice in the past 2 seasons – and not at all when on loan at Fulham.

If he does end up in Monaco, that may mean that Balogun (once of Arsenal) might become available after not keeping up his form with Reims on loan the previous season. A US international for Mike Gaynes to get excited about...

23 in September, a bad injury, not really done it. He looks more a wide left-forward than a centre-forward.

For £30M, I think he's well over-priced. Boniface went for €20M last summer, so not far half the price.

There is better value out there.

Would a Sean Dyche set-up cater to his skill set?

If we'd even consider signing him, it would be because Dom would be leaving, so it would have to be like for like. We don't need another Maupay situation.

I highly doubt we have £30M to spend on an injury-prone forward who appears to have lost his way.

We signed Calvert-Lewin and Branthwaite for relative buttons. I'm not saying it's easy to find these players, but surely these are the kind of signings we need to be making?

Having said that, if we have money to spend, I'd still look elsewhere. Nketiah perhaps. I would definitely investigate picking up Brereton Diaz, as we should have last summer. Cameron Archer is too good for the Championship, as well.

Paul (1) I agree, I have said it a few times, Beto will come good. He needed a season to adapt and didn't play as much as he'd hoped.

He’s dreadful Steve. Hope you’re right but adapting to a new league is one thing and just not being good enough is another. He’s a poor player.
