Chelsea’s Armando Broja gears up for Southampton’s Newport debut

Young Chelsea prepares to debut on loan for Southampton

Armando Broja made his competitive debut for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s Southampton tonight against League Two Newport at Rodney Parade, and he did not disappoint.

The Albanian international and Chelsea Cobham academy graduate secured a loan deal at St. Mary’s for the 2021-22 Premier League campaign and has immediately restored the faith the Saints showed in him with a second-round double at the Carabao Cup.

He was not expected to start regularly for Southampton and behind in the pecking order with players like Adam Armstrong, Ché Adams and Michael Obafemi ahead, he did appear on Hasenhüttl matchday XI ahead of substitute Shane Long and his inclusion in the team could offer more possibilities than previously assumed.

Southampton have benefited from Chelsea’s youth pool this summer, with Broja being the first of three to migrate south this summer during the subsequent transfer window, followed by the club striking full deals for Valentino Livramento and Dynel Simeu.

Future in doubt in Chelsea for Broja

It’s hard to say whether Broja will be able to build a future at Stamford Bridge in the future, regardless of whether his loan period at the Saints is brilliant or not.

The forward had a good season at satellite club Vitesse Arnhem last season, scoring 10 goals in 30 appearances. But Chelsea’s spending habits could very easily mean that they will simply look to cash in on her development, especially after the Blues sealed a deal to Romelu lukaku In addition to having Timo Werner and Kai Havertz behind the record Belgian scorer as center-forward options,

Chelsea have already overtaken Tammy Abraham, who was not getting minutes with Thomas Tuchel, so it is difficult to project whether Broja can make his way into German tactics by thinking long term.
