‘Wonderful News’ ‘Let’s Go’ – Chelsea Fans React To Claims That Long Term Injury Absentee Is Poised To Return

Albanian FA president Armand Duka says there is a possibility that Chelsea striker Armando Broja will be on the bench for the game against Bournemouth this weekend.

The 22-year-old has not played since sustaining an ACL injury back in December last year but Duka says the forward is nearing a return to full fitness:

“Broja has completed his recovery phase. Maybe this week he will be on the bench with Chelsea, ready to return to the field.”

Fans on X are delighted that Broja could be back in action very soon, with some hoping that he can provide competition for Nicolas Jackson up front:

Broja may need time to get back to his best

The Albanian international has been out of contention for the best part of 9 months so he will clearly be lacking match sharpness.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has suggested that Broja will be eased back into things, although you would hope that he can feature prominently in the Carabao Cup against Brighton later this month.

Chelsea are looking to strengthen their forward options

While many supporters will hope that Broja will be given the chance to show what he can do between now and January, it appears the club’s recruitment department are already drawing up a list of names, with a view to adding another striker to the squad.

Brentford’s Ivan Toney, Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins and RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko are said to be the three main targets currently under consideration.
