Chelsea 'could allow Armando Broja to complete Premier League transfer' if Blues sign Victor Osimhem from Napoli | The Sun
CHELSEA could allow Armando Broja to complete a move to a Premier League rival to help them sign Victor Osimhen.
The Napoli striker has emerged as a key target for the Blues as they look to solve their striker conundrum.
Osimhen has even hinted at a move to Stamford Bridge, with Broja's potential exit paving the way for his arrival.
According to Football London, Chelsea are willing to sanction his sale to boost their chances of signing Osimhen.
The departure of the Albanian international would free up more funds for their pursuit of the Napoli man.
West Ham could reignite their interest in Broja if Chelsea are prepared to sell him, the report adds.

David Moyes previously had a £30million bid rejected in 2022 after Broja's impressive loan spell with Southampton.
However, he later ruptured his cruciate ligament, only returning from the injury after the start of this season.
Another knee injury since has limited the 22-year-old to just five appearances this term.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are reportedly confident they can sign Osimhen, with the forward out of contract at Napoli in 2025.

Appearing on the Obi One podcast, he explained: "I don’t have a favourite Premier League club, but I have two shirts: Chelsea and Manchester United.
"Many of my friends are Chelsea fans, a few Manchester United. The Premier League is the most popular league for any African player, it’s a great league."
