View: Graham Potter arrival at Chelsea will be good news for Armando Broja
Chelsea are going through a transitional phase where they just let go of their Champions League-winning manager Thomas Tuchel after a poor start to their campaign [Sky Sports].
The former Borussia Dortmund coach has been replaced by Graham Potter who joined the London-based outfit from Brighton on a five-year deal.
His arrival has been met with a lot of scepticism as it will be the first time when he will be managing a club as big as Chelsea.
Great news for Broja
During the summer, there have been a lot of players who were heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge to get more first-team minutes.
Out of them, the most talked about player was probably young striker Armando Broja who was heavily linked with a number of clubs including Everton and West Ham [The Guardian].

But the 21-year-old ended up staying at the club for another season as Tuchel let him leave after having no out-right forwards before the deadline day when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang arrived from FC Barcelona.
However, Potter’s arrival will definitely going to be a massive boost for Broja as the 47-year-old was extremely influential during his time at Brighton where he turned a number of youngsters into few of the best in the Premier League like Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma, both of whom joined Chelsea and Tottenham earlier in the summer [Transfermarkt].
Broja will be hoping that working with someone like Potter, who has a track record of improving youngsters under his watch, will turn him into the kind of player who will be able to lead the attacking line of Chelsea, sooner rather than later.
