Aston Villa are admirers of Chelsea striker Armando Broja but are yet to make an enquiry regarding his availability this winter, according to reporter Ben Jacobs in a report by GiveMeSport.

Fellow Premier League sides Wolves, West Ham and Fulham have also been mentioned as potential suitors for the attacker between now and the end of the transfer deadline next week.

Broja, 22, has made 19 appearances for Chelsea during the first-half of this season and has chipped in with two goals. He has enjoyed plenty of game time at Stamford Bridge this term but hasn't been able to hit the ground running under Mauricio Pochettino, hence why he is being linked with a possible exit in the near future.

Aston Villa could see him as someone to bolster their options at the the top end of the pitch. He would provide some strong competition for Ollie Watkins. However, they probably don't need him at the moment unless Jhon Duran was to head out the exit door.

Broja has played for his current club since 2009 having previously been at Tottenham Hotspur. He has played 38 times for the Blues and has found the net on three occasions, having also had loan spells away at Vitesse and Southampton in the past to get some experience under his belt.

Aston Villa's name has been mentioned as a potential next destination for him but time will tell whether they will actually make a swoop for him as Emery's men prepare for their return to league action.
