Southampton are set to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea, according to The London Evening Standard.

It has been reported that Southampton will announce the signing of Broja on a loan deal from Chelsea in the next 48 hours.

Chelsea have decided to send the 19-year-old Albania international forward out on loan for this season so that he can get first-team experience.

The London Evening Standard are also reporting that Southampton have agreed a fee with Blackburn Rovers over striker Adam Armstrong.

What will Southampton get from Broja?

Broja may be 19 years of age, but the Albania international forward has already got some decent experience of first-team football.

The teenager has turned out six times for his national team and spent the 2020-21 campaign on loan at Vitesse.

The youngster made 21 goals and nine substitute appearances in the Eredivise last season.

Broja scored 10 goals and gave two assists in those games.

The Albanian plays as a striker, but he is also able to play out wide and is versatile.

Now, of course, Southampton should not expect him to start banging in the goals for fun, but Broja could develop in the coming months and could end up with a decent goal-tally this season.
