Inter Milan’s CEO denies any transfer links with Chelsea.

Piero Ausilio, Inter Milan’s sporting director, has dismissed speculation linking the Italian club to Chelsea striker Armando Broja ahead of the January transfer window.
Following a difficult injury layoff, Broja started and scored his first goal in nearly 11 months for the Blues in their 2-0 Premier League win over Fulham on October 2.

Despite interest from a number of teams during the summer, Mauricio Pochettino chose to keep hold of the 22-year-old to give competition for new transfer Nicolas Jackson while fellow new addition Christopher Nkunku recovers from a long-term injury.

C Milan were said to be interested in getting Broja on loan with a buy option earlier this year, while West Ham United were also said to be interested.

Broja eventually stayed at Stamford Bridge, but rumours over a future escape continues, with Gazzetta dello Sport recently reporting that Inter are mulling a January move for the striker.


After failing to sign Romelu Lukaku on a permanent basis, nter signed three attackers in the summer, including Marcus Thuram, Alexis Sanchez, and Marko Arnautovic, but the latter two have struggled to make an immediate impression at San Siro.

Indeed, Sanchez and Arnautovic have yet to score in six and seven outings, r

espectively, although Thuram has demonstrated his playmaker ability this season, with seven assists and three goals in ten games across all competitions.

Inter have instead depended heavily on star striker Lautaro Martinez to make the net ripple, with the Argentine scoring 11 goals in 10 games this season, although the Italian giants are thought to be anxious to improve their alternatives in attack.

“No, I’m sorry, but that is not true, because we are happy with the strikers we have,” Ausilio said to reporters, according to the Evening Standard.

“I know Broja, and I know he’s recovering from a serious injury and scoring goals.” I hope that starting on Thursday, he will be a key member of the national team. But there is no possibility at Inter.”

Broja’s contract with Chelsea was extended last year, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2028.

The Blues academy graduate is now on international duty with Albania, ahead of Euro 2024 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria later this month.
