Wolves Eye January Move for Armando Broja as Pochettino Explores Striker Options

The 22-year-old Chelsea forward’s future hinges on the club’s pursuit of additional attacking talent this month, Footballrover reports.

Broja, who recently led the line in Chelsea’s victory over Fulham, may face tough decisions if Pochettino secures another forward.

With heightened competition for starting positions, the young striker’s chances of securing regular playing time could diminish.

Chelsea, actively scouting for reinforcements, has been linked with Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, considering Brighton’s Evan Ferguson a long-term prospect, and expressing interest in Aston Villa’s Jhon Durán.

However, the pursuit of Brentford’s Ivan Toney seems unlikely, and interest in Sporting’s Viktor Gyökeres has also cooled.

The potential addition of Karim Benzema from the Saudi Pro League or Roberto Firmino as short-term options is also being considered according to rumours.

Chelsea’s need for attacking prowess has become more pressing due to a lack of ruthlessness and the absence of Christopher Nkunku, who is sidelined with a hip injury, while Nicolas Jackson represents Senegal at the African Cup of Nations.

Broja, despite leading Chelsea’s attack in a recent win, faces challenges in building momentum since returning from a knee injury this season.

Substituted in the 66th minute during the Fulham match, he has struggled to secure a consistent starting role.

The situation has attracted interest from various clubs, with West Ham being long-time admirers of Broja, whose contract extends until 2028.

The Wolves, managed by Gary O’Neil, have now added the promising striker to their shortlist.

Despite scoring only twice in 17 appearances this season, Broja’s potential was evident during a loan spell at Southampton in the 2021–22 campaign.
