Chelsea offered Joao Felix, Matheus Cunha and Memphis Depay as January transfer replacement for injured Armando Broja
CHELSEA have reportedly been offered the services of some of Europe’s elite forwards following the news that Armando Broja will be out for the season.
Broja has had his season abruptly ended following an ACL injury he picked up during Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Aston Villa in a friendly last week.
Armando Broja has made 18 competitive appearances for Chelsea this season and became an important player for Graham Potter.
Chelsea boss, Graham Potter, will be without the 21-year-old until next season and will have to rely on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kai Havertz to lead the line until he can bring in reinforcements.
However, it may not be long until the Blues’ boss gets his man as the Evening Standard have reported the club have been offered deals for Matheus Cunha, Joao Felix and Memphis Depay in January.
The Atletico Madrid pair, Felix and Cunha, are both looking likely to be departing from the Spanish capital soon and could be an attractive option for Chelsea.

Felix impressed in Qatar during the World Cup with Portugal where he managed to register two assists and grab himself a goal in his four appearances during the tournament.
The 23-year-old could be a viable option for Chelsea as he is reportedly available for a loan transfer.
The London side are said to already have a pre-agreed deal in place for RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku in the summer which would mean a loan transfer in January may be more appealing.
Cunha has also attracted the interest of other Premier League sides with Wolves and Leeds United supposedly interested in the Brazilian.
Barcelona’s Depay is someone Chelsea have previously been linked to, with the Blues said to have been considering a move for the Dutchman before deciding to bring in Aubameyang.
Memphis Depay has managed 14 goals and two assists in 41 appearances for Barcelona.

Borussia Dortmund youngster Youssoufa Moukoko is another name the club are reportedly looking at luring to Stamford Bridge with a whole host of other top sides said to be interested in the 18-year-old.
The German wonder kid was a surprise inclusion in Hansi Flick’s World Cup squad where he only played one minute for the side who crashed out in the group stages.
