Graham Potter impressed with 21-year-old Chelsea star in training – Reports

The Sun reports that Armando Broja, a 21-year-old Albanian striker, is a huge favorite of incoming Chelsea manager Graham Potter. Despite the arrival of summer addition Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the forward has impressed his new manager in training and appears likely to start.

According to reports, Potter thinks the Albanian star has great potential and would work great in the club’s preferred system. One of Broja’s assets is his ability to press the ball, which matches with the footballing style of the English boss.

During Potter’s first game in charge of the Blues, Broja made his first appearance under the new manager. In the 30-minute intermission of his team’s 1-1 draw with Salzburg, he was added. Due to the fact that Broja seems to be chasing after him, Aubameyang will have to compete for his job at the club. But given the lengthy and crowded season that lies ahead, the Gabonese star could welcome the chance to split the playing time.

Since Broja has experience playing in the Premier League, he appears ready to move up to the starting XI. Last season, the Southampton player out on loan from the Chelsea youth club impressed with nine goals and a run of outstanding displays.

With the Albanian up top for his team, Potter will be hoping to lay the foundation for the present and the future. Broja will now be hoping that when called upon, he can repay his manager’s faith with excellent performances on the field.

Dean Jones believes that Mason Mount may leave Chelsea.
Mason Mount appears to have impressed the hierarchy while Armando Broja may be pleasing the management. The England international, who joined the Blues when he was just six years old, has established himself as a key member of the first squad, appearing in every league game so far this year.

The offensive midfielder’s current deal at Stamford Bridge expires in just two years, therefore the Blues want him to sign a new one. GiveMeSport, who observed that the 23-year-old would eventually retire at the club, claims this. Dean Jones, a football pundit, said that if the team kept investing wisely, Mount may stay at Stamford Bridge until his retirement.

Although he has yet to score a goal this season, the aggressive midfielder will be looking to do well for Chelsea under Graham Potter.
