Southampton set to sign third Chelsea starlet this summer

Southampton look set to sign their third Chelsea player of the summer as they close in on a loan deal for Armando Broja.

The Saints have already acquired ex-Blues youngsters Valentino Livramento and Dynel Simeu on permanent deals.

And they now have their sights set on Albanian international Broja as they look to bolster their squad ahead of the new Premier League season.

The 19-year-old forward has only made one senior appearance for the Blues, which came as an 86th minute substitute in a 4-0 win against Everton in March 2020.

He then went out on loan to Eredivisie side Vitesse last season where he was mightily impressive.

Broja scored 11 times in 34 games for the Dutch side before returning to Stamford Bridge.
