Everton will push on with striker targets, set sight on Armando Broja

Everton will now push on with their striker targets after securing two signings this week, as reported by INews.

Mark Douglas reported for the website on 9 August that the Toffees are still in the hunt to sign Chelsea striker Armando Broja, and that their interest is “ongoing”.

The 20-year-old striker was chased by a host of clubs this summer, but Chelsea appear to be reluctant to sell him.

Get it done

Broja played in the opening game for Chelsea when he came on as a substitute in the second half against Everton at Goodison Park.

The young talent was superb for Southampton last season on loan, and Thomas Tuchel is not particularly keen to let him go elsewhere.

In fact, Everton’s task of landing the striker could now get difficult after Chelsea allowed Timo Werner to leave the club as well.

Everton desperately need to sign a striker this summer.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the club’s first-choice striker but the England international is currently out injured. He could be out for four to six weeks, leaving the Toffees short of options in that department.

The Toffees have also allowed the likes of Ellis Simms and Lewis Dobbin to move out on loan, and right now, they don’t have any recognised striker at the club.

Broja would be a terrific addition, and Lampard must try his best to get him on board before the end of the window.

In other news, Chelsea are reportedly working on a deal to sign Cesare Casadei.
