Shearer backing Broja: But Chelsea need to find striker signing

Former England captain Alan Shearer says Armando Broja can make it with Chelsea.

The Albania international was in Chelsea's squad for victory at Everton.

Shearer says Chelsea need to sign a striker this summer.

Romelu Lukaku has already left the club for Inter Milan on loan.

Timo Werner has also proven unreliable in the striker department.

That leaves academy ace Broja, who Shearer says isn't ready.

Speaking after the 20-year-old came off the bench in Chelsea's Prem opener against Everton, Shearer said: “I think they've made some very good signings.

“But, like Everton, there is no doubt that Chelsea need that [centre] forward as well.

“I know they've got [Armando] Broja, but it might take time for him, and in the meantime, they've lost [Romelu] Lukaku, they need [to bring in] a centre-forward."
