Nottingham Forest are keen on signing Armando Broja but now two Serie A clubs have joined the race, according to the Daily Mail.

West Ham, Newcastle and Everton are already providing Forest with domestic competition for the centre forward.

Now, Inter Milan and Napoli are two clubs from overseas who also fancy signing the Chelsea youngster.

Broja enjoyed a decent breakthrough campaign during 2021/22, scoring nine goals during a season-long loan at Southampton.

The 20-year-old is unlikely to earn a chance at Chelsea next season and as a result, he looks set for another move.

It does look like Broja will be heading out on loan once again. The player has a contract at Stamford Bridge that runs until 2026.

Forest will hope to bolster their attacking ranks this summer with a signing or two.

Lewis Grabban will likely be released by the Reds, whilst Keinan Davis will return to Aston Villa at the end of his loan.

That leaves Sam Surridge as the only senior striker in the ranks and he will need some support.

Broja definitely fits the profile of a Forest signing on Dane Murphy’s watch but this one could be tricky to pull off.

All of the clubs interested in Broja are established in the top flight.

Indeed, in terms of Napoli and Inter, they provide options for two of European football’s top club sides.

Forest will perhaps be someway down the queue of clubs vying to take him.

West Ham, Newcastle and Everton will probably have lofty ambitions next year. Ask Evangelos Marinakis and so too will Forest!

It will definitely be interesting to see who the Reds sign in the coming weeks.

It has to be said that given the size of the clubs in the mix to sign Broja, this one is perhaps looking increasingly unlikely.
