Chelsea eye Cole Palmer transfer repeat amid £50m Armando Broja decision


Chelsea is reportedly considering a bid for Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran before the January deadline, influenced by the success of Cole Palmer post his £45m move from Manchester City. Despite Chelsea’s £75m investment in Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku last summer, Palmer, at 21, has outscored both, with 13 goals across all competitions. With Armando Broja’s potential departure due to Financial Fair Play regulations, Chelsea eyes 20-year-old Duran, an eight-cap Colombian striker, who could provide attacking depth at a more affordable price than the speculated £50m for Broja.

Villa has allegedly rejected a loan bid from West Ham for Broja, linking the Hammers to the Albanian forward. Duran, open to a move, may face eligibility constraints for cup competitions. Chelsea’s interest in Duran may hinge on Broja’s future, reflecting the club’s emphasis on a youthful lineup.
