Chelsea can resolve their striker issue if they sign Malen as Broja upgrade

In an unusual turn for Chelsea, the club has experienced a quiet transfer window regarding incoming players. Mauricio Pochettino has been compelled to rely on the existing squad. Departures have been scarce, with Ian Maatsen and David Datro Fofana being the only players to leave Stamford Bridge this month. Both of whom had minimal impact on the squad this season.

With only hours left before the deadline, there is still potential for changes on both incoming and outgoing fronts. Meanwhile, Reports suggest Chelsea received an offer of a Bundesliga forward who could serve as a replacement for Armando Broja.

There was an initial inclination to retain Broja unless a permanent fee was there. However, recent reports indicate that Chelsea has agreed to loan the young forward to Fulham in a late winter window move. If Broja departs, Chelsea might find themselves in a last-minute scramble for a replacement. Thus, potentially turning to the Bundesliga for a solution.

Will Chelsea go for Donyell Malen?

Simon Phillips’ Substack reports that Chelsea has received an offer to sign Donyell Malen from the player’s agent before the transfer window concludes.

Dortmund’s star could potentially surpass Broja. But Chelsea’s ability to pursue this deal in the final hours of the window is uncertain. Pochettino faces a pressing need for attacking reinforcements, and Malen could contribute significantly to resolving this issue.

If Broja finalizes his departure from Chelsea before the window closes, turning to Malen would be a prudent move. Not only would the Dutchman fill the void left by the young forward, but he would also represent an immediate upgrade.

The agent’s reported offer to Chelsea indicates a potential move for the Dutchman in the near future. Whether during this window or in the upcoming summer transfer window. Hence, keeping an eye on Malen in the coming months is advisable.
