Romelu Lukaku joined Inter Milan on a season-long loan.
The Belgium international secured a loan move to his former club Inter Milan after a frustrating 2021/22 season with Chelsea.
He struggled for consistency and failed to adapt to Thomas Tuchel’s style.
The Blues have been linked with a number of wide forwards but club legend Glen Johnson believes Armando Broja can fulfill Lukaku’s shoes next season.
He said: ‘I think Chelsea are going to be reluctant to spend scary money again considering what happened with the Romelu Lukaku signing.
‘If it was up to me, then I’d give Armando Broja a chance rather than spending £80 million on a replacement. I’d rather get it wrong with a player that I’ve already got, rather than get it wrong by spending £80 million.
‘Broja is technically good in front of goal but I don’t know how good he is yet. He did score some fantastic goals for Southampton but, let’s face it, Southampton aren’t Chelsea.
‘He’s going to get more goal scoring opportunities at Chelsea and he’s technically good enough to score more next season.’
