FULHAM are eyeing a surprise move for Chelsea’s Armando Broja, as the Blues receive a go-ahead for a deal for Victor Osimhen, a report claims.

After losing Aleksandar Mitrovic in the summer to Al-Hilal The Cottagers are desperate to replace the forward.

Victor Osimhen is at the top of Chelsea's transfer wishlist

Fulham have gotten off to a struggling start this season with only four wins in their 13 league games.

After securing a vital 3-2 victory over Wolves at Craven Cottage on Monday night Marco Silva is still keen to add more firepower to his squad.

According to the Daily Mail, Broja is fit again after returning from a serious knee injury but Chelsea are still on the hunt for another striker.

Chelsea’s West London rivals are interested in the 22-year-old, who could leave the Blues on loan in January, the report claims.

Although he scored against Silva’s side last month in the Blues 2-0 win, the Albanian international has still impressed his West London rivals.

As a kid, Broja had trials at the Cottagers but was turned away before signing with Tottenham in their youth selection.

But he might fall short of signing for them again as Fulham are also interested in Stuggart’s goal menace Serhou Guirassy who has netted 16 goals in ten Bundesliga matches.

The 27-year-old will face plenty of competition meaning Fulham are keeping their options open with Wolfsburg’s Jonas Wind also on their radar.

They currently sit 10th in the Premier League table, 14 points adrift of the top spot.

Blues chief Todd Boehly is itching to strengthen his frontline and Napoli’s Osimhen is at the top of his transfer wishlist.

The 24-year-old is said to be made available in the January transfer window.

However, the Serie A champions will likely demand £120million for him.

Should Chelsea complete a deal to sign Osimhen, he will become the most expensive player in the Premier League.

The Blues are among several clubs that have expressed an interest in signing the Napoli striker.

Arsenal and Manchester United have also been linked with him.
