A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Evening Standard stated that Real Madrid want to recruit Chelsea forward Armando Broja this summer. It has been mentioned that Los Blancos have enquired about the Albanian striker’s availability in this off-season.

Broja’s Impressive Loan Spell At St. Mary’s Stadium Last Season

Recently, Broja had a decent loan spell at Southampton and managed to put in a run of influential displays as a key member of Ralph Hasenhüttl’s attack. The 20-year-old found the back of the net on nine occasions and earned one assist in 38 matches for the Saints last season across multiple competitions.

The Albania international caught the eye by averaging 1.4 shots and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. However, he has to figure out a way to improve his ball distribution after making 61.4% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

What Will Broja Bring To Real Madrid?

Broja has a knack for scoring some important goals for his team and can make a few well-timed runs in behind the opponent’s backline. He is a decent dribbler with the ball but needs to figure out a way to improve his passing accuracy.

At 20, the Albanian talent has the potential to become a prolific forward someday. Therefore, it is no surprise that Real Madrid are showing interest in recruiting him this summer.

Broja is good enough to serve as a decent back-up to Karim Benzema at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. He is also versatile enough to operate as a winger out on the flanks. Hence, Carlo Ancelotti can definitely use someone like Broja as an important rotational piece in his match-day squad next season. He will undeniably bring more pace and goals to the Madrid club’s attack.

Based on his recent loan spell, Los Blancos can expect him to grow into a future star in Spanish football if they can find a way to secure his services during this summer transfer window. With all things considered, Broja will be a decent signing for the Madrid giants in the long run as he has the ceiling to become a world-class player in his position over the next decade.
