Serie A champions AC Milan have reportedly held talks with representatives of Chelsea striker Armando Broja over a proposed transfer next summer.
The 20-year-old was handed his first senior start for the West Londoners in the goalless Premier League draw away at Brentford on Wednesday.
Broja has featured another 10 times off the substitutes’ bench so far this season and he is currently in the first-team plans of new head coach Graham Potter.
The Albania international signed a new six-year contract with Chelsea at the beginning of September, committing his future to the club until the summer of 2028.
However, Broja continues to be linked with a potential exit from Stamford Bridge, and Calciomercato claims that AC Milan are exploring the possibility of luring the striker to San Siro.
The report adds that Rossoneri directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara held a meeting with Cheikh Fall, an intermediary who has connections with Broja’s agent, to discuss a potential deal to sign the youngster next summer.
Milan are believed to be on the lookout for long-term replacements for 41-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic and 36-year-old Olivier Giroud, who are both out of contract in June 2023.
