Real Madrid have contacted Chelsea regarding the availability of forward Armando Broja.

Broja, 20, impressed on loan at Southampton last term and is garnering attention from across Europe.

West Ham were thought to be leading the race to land the Blues’ academy graduate, but turned instead to Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca, who joined the Irons in a £35.5million deal on Tuesday.

Everton and Newcastle continue to be keeping a close eye on the situation, while several Serie A sides are also in the mix to secure Broja’s signature.

According to the Evening Standard, Los Blancos have now expressed interest in the Albanian international.

Carlo Ancelotti is keen to add young blood to his squad, as the Champions League and LaLiga winners plot a sustained period of success.

Forwards Gareth Bale and Luka Jovic both exited the Bernabeu this summer giving the Italian boss space to inject new faces into his forward line.

Yet Broja’s current employers are reluctant to see their promising talent leave Stamford Bridge, especially with fellow striker Romelu Lukaku having already joined Inter Milan on a season-long loan.
