Fulham have signed Chelsea striker Armando Broja on loan for the rest of the season.

Broja, 22, has made 19 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea this campaign, scoring two goals.

The Albania international was also a target for Wolves and AC Milan during the winter transfer window.

He missed half of the 2022-23 season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in December 2022.

Broja is a graduate of Chelsea's academy and has scored three goals in 38 appearances since making his debut against Everton in March 2020.

Fulham are 12th in the Premier League, two places and six points behind Chelsea, and just six teams have scored fewer than the Cottagers' tally of 28 goals in 2023-24.

Fulham FC statement:
The Club is delighted to confirm the signing of striker Armando Broja on loan until the end of the season.

Making the short trip to us from Chelsea, the 22-year-old will be looking to make an impact here, similarly to how he previously did at Dutch side Vitesse and Southampton.

Speaking to FFCtv, the Albanian international said: "It feels amazing. I'm really happy to be here and I can't wait to get started, meet the players and manager and play for the fans.

"The fans always play a big role and I can't wait to go to Craven Cottage and meet them all. I'm going to work hard for the team and create a real bond.

"I'm really honoured and excited to be here."

Tony Khan added: "I'm very excited that we've reached an agreement to bring Armando Broja to Fulham on loan until the end of the season.

"He's a young and talented striker who is happy and motivated to join our squad and to play for Marco and his staff!

"Come on Fulham!"

Broja signed for Chelsea's Academy towards the end of Under-9s level and continued to score regular goals as a centre-forward and wide man. After reaching 20 Academy goals in the 2019/20 season, he went on to make his senior debut in a Premier League fixture against Everton.

The youthful striker made a few more appearances off the bench for Thomas Tuchel's side before making his Champions League debut away at Dinamo Zagreb.

He remained in favour after the arrival of new Head Coach Graham Potter, featuring in five of Chelsea's six European group-stage fixtures during the 2022/23 campaign.

Broja later went on to score his first goal in a 3-0 win over Wolves, before making a full debut at Brentford.

Following a period on the sidelines with an injury, the forward made his return against Aston Villa in September 2023, before marking his first start since returning with a goal at Craven Cottage.
