Since the sale of Victor Osimhen has been a hot topic in the Italian media for the past few months, it’s inevitable that local reports start wondering who Napoli will replace him with.
One of the names on the table seems to be the one of Armando Broja, who belongs to Chelsea and is currently having a loan spell at Southampton.
The striker was already linked to Napoli in the past, and the rumours seem to be growing in the past couple of days.
Between Thursday and Friday, a report claimed that despite the chase for Broja, the Italian side would actually have a tough scenario to land him this summer, as Chelsea would like to ‘bring him home’ following his loan spell.
Now in a story from TuttoMercatoWeb, it’s indeed claimed that Napoli should have moved earlier for his signing.
The website writes that Broja is one of the ‘most appreciated profiles’ that Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli had for the summer, and Marina Granovskaia was ‘ready to sell’ him for €35-40m.
However, with the uncertainty regarding Chelsea’s future, the situation changed
It’s now claimed ‘no predictions can be made’ at this present time, as the Blues don’t have a clear view of what their next transfer window will be.
