Armando Broja signed a fresh new five-year contract with Chelsea a couple weeks ago, and had been one of the team’s best performers in the first couple preseason games this summer, but the teenage striker was always more likely to head out on loan (again) rather than stay with the first-team where his minutes would be very limited, most probably.

With all the senior Chelsea players now back with the team following their summer holidays, Broja should be free to pick a destination, and according to Fabrizio Romano, that destination would be Udinese. The midtable Serie A side, currently managed by Maurizio Sarri’s former assistant at Chelsea, Luca Gotti, have apparently made an inquiry and are in some level of talks with the club still.

Broja spent last season at Vitesse, where he found the back of the net 11 times in 34 appearances (24 starts) in all competitions. The 19-year-old has had a meteoric rise over the past couple years, and hopefully he’ll get to continue that this season as well.
