Broja suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury during a friendly against Aston Villa, leaving Graham Potter’s attacking options significantly weakened.

Fofana has one year left on his current deal with Molde and is now on the verge of completing a switch to Stamford Bridge.

It is reported that personal terms are still being discussed between the player and Blues but a deal is expected to go through in the coming weeks, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
