About Football Express UK

Newcastle United are showing desperation in the transfer market as they have placed a huge £40 million bid for Chelsea loanee Armando Broja as per the report in TUTTOmercatoWEB

The 20-year-old joined Southampton last summer from the Blues on a season-long loan. The youngster has enjoyed a productive loan spell highway through this season, scoring five goals in the Premier League in 18 appearances. 

According to the report, Southampton is eager to make the Albanian’s loan move permanent in this January transfer window after being impressed by the youngster’s display so far this season. The Saints have reportedly made a £30 million bid for the striker. 

However, the report further claims that Newcastle United have entered the fray and made a whopping £40 million bid for the signature of Armando Broja. However, Chelsea is reportedly unwilling to accept the offer. And they want to assess the forward’s development at the end of this season before making the final decision. 

Should Armando Broja leave Chelsea and join either Southampton or Newcastle? 

Armando Broja has displayed a productive performance at Southampton so far this season. And the youngster should sign for the Saints as he is under the tutelage of Ralph Hasenhuttl who likes to work with young talents and develop them. 

Going back to Chelsea might not be the right decision for the 20-year-old. After enjoying a productive loan stint. The youngster should play regular first-team football to flourish in the Premier League. And it will be hard for the Albanians to find regular first-team action at Stamford Bridge, given they are stacked with attacking firepower. 

Meanwhile, joining Newcastle United might be a tempting prospect for the youngster. As they can offer a big financial package. However, at this stage of his career, he should concentrate on his football and develop his career. So, Southampton will be a perfect destination. The Saints are playing an entertaining brand of football. And they can change the playing style against superior opponents. 

Therefore, the youngster will be accustomed to the high-intensity brand of football as well as the pragmatic style of play. This will help him to settle down under any type of football if he makes the next step in his career going forward. Therefore, Southampton could be a perfect destination for Armando Broja.
