Real Madrid 'enquire over Chelsea's Armando Broja' as they join Newcastle and Everton in transfer race for striker | The Sun

REAL MADRID have reportedly entered the race to sign Chelsea youngster Armando Broja.

The Albania international caught the eye of several clubs during his loan spell with Southampton last season.


And his displays for Saints are said to have prompted Spanish giants Real to inquire about his availability.

That's according to The Evening Standard, who claim Los Blancos recently approached the west Londoners about taking Broja off their hands.

Real are said to be keen on adding a "number of young strikers to their squad for the coming season."
