CHELSEA prodigy Armando Broja has penned a new five-year contract.
And the striker now looks set for a spot in Thomas Tuchel’s squad this season.
Broja, 19, made his Blues debut last year under Frank Lampard.
The teen said: “I am really excited to be signing a new contract with Chelsea.
“Having come through the academy here it was a special moment for me to make my first-team debut last year, before gaining further experience on loan at Vitesse last season.
“I want to build on these foundations and I am really looking forward to progressing and making an impact at Chelsea in the years to come.”
The Albania international spent last term on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, scoring 11 goals in 34 games.
And after impressing Tuchel in pre-season training, Broja has now committed his future on a long-term deal.
Chelsea are known to be in the market for a new forward.
But with Olivier Giroud sold to AC Milan, and Tammy Abraham’s future uncertain, Broja now looks set to become a member of the senior group.

He was among the scorers on Saturday as Chelsea beat Peterborough 6-1 in a pre-season friendly at Cobham.
Broja came on in the second half before hitting the target.
Abraham and Christian Pulisic also scored, but Hakim Ziyech took home the match ball with a hat-trick.
