Everton are reportedly still interested in signing the 20-year-old, but the Blues’ stumbling block over a price is making it hard for them to finalise the move.
According to reports, the Albanian is hoping to leave Stamford Bridge in order to play more first team minutes.
He was on the verge of joining West Ham United, and the player had agreed to personal terms for an exciting transfer across the city.
But Thomas Tuchel in particular was determined to retain onto him, thus the Hammers finally turned their focus to recently acquired Gianluca Scamacca.
Broja’s ambition to transfer away is still being pursued by Everton, according to a Chelsea increase price for Broja 90min report, but Chelsea will only consider selling if they sign a new striker to their team.

According to rumours, Timo Werner is in a similar predicament as Broja and believes he would be happy playing football somewhere else, particularly during a World Cup year.
The German must also wait for the club to find a successor before he can go, and given the club’s ongoing transfer discussions, it’s possible he won’t get his wish.
Broja should also have faith in the club’s continued need for reinforcements following the acquisition of Raheem Sterling, as the position of striker is undoubtedly up for grabs if Kai Havertz cannot demonstrate his ability to score frequently.
He should be optimistic that he can establish his value in the team and force his way into Tuchel’s plans since the creative powers at Stamford Bridge are superior than the ones he played with at Southampton last season.
