West Ham United target Armando Broja suffers horror injury during the Chelsea vs Aston Villa friendly out in the United Arab Emirates yesterday.

The 21-year-old Chelsea hitman is allegedly a transfer target for the Hammers, and has been for quite some time now.

The Albania international is a truly exceptional young striker, and has a great future ahead of him in the game.

Chelsea ace Broja has suffered a big setback though.

Blues boss Graham Potter took his side out to the UAE for a friendly against Aston Villa yesterday.

The 21-year-old could have been peacocking for potential move away from Chelsea, or proving to Potter just how good he is and that he is worthy of place in the Blues starting XI.

However, it seems as though he won’t be playing regularly for Chelsea for a while, nor will he be leaving Stamford Bridge in January now…

Armando Broja suffered horror injury during Chelsea vs Aston Villa

The powerful young forward would have been desperate to make an impression out in the UAE against Villa yesterday.

Unfortunately for him though, his game ended early.

Broja suffered a horror injury against Villa and his screams after the unfortunate collision with Villa centre-back Ezri Konsa could be heard loud and clear:

The early indications are ‘not positive’.

That’s according to Chelsea manager Graham Potter, who provided an update on Broja after the game, as quoted by The Metro:

It was an unfortunate action, I think he got caught up with their player and the ground. It doesn’t look positive at the moment but it is too early to say. Fingers crossed but it is an awkward one.

That doesn’t sounds great for the Albania international does it.

And the fact that he will now be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines is a real shame for him.

I would have loved to see the Chelsea hitman at the London Stadium. I think he would have been absolutely perfect for us.

Broja could be available for around £40 million, according to The Sun journalist Tom Barclay. That kind of money will end up looking like great value for whichever club signs the forward in my opinion.

He won’t be going anywhere anytime soon though.

Armando Broja suffered a real horror injury during the Chelsea vs Aston Villa clash yesterday.

And as a result, he won’t be going anywhere in January transfer window, nor will he be playing regularly for Chelsea.

So it’s bad news for David Moyes and Graham Potter.
