Thomas Bruns is a Dutch international who played with Chelsea loanee Armando Broja at Vitesse. Bruns has given his view on how he sees his former teammate’s career panning out.
“Thirty million I did not expect, but I did expect that he [Broja] would end up at a good club,” the Adanaspor midfielder told Voetbalzone.
“He sees Mason Mount as his example. He also did well at Vitesse and is now a key player at Chelsea.
“No shocking numbers, but apart from those ten goals, he has shown what other qualities he has. I think he can make it to the first team at Chelsea within four years.”
“That will also be his goal. They will need a new striker anyway if [Romelu] Lukaku wants to move on in the long run. I think he could do that.”
The Albanian international has impressed at Southampton so far this season, scoring seven goals in 21 appearances in all competitions, with five of them coming in the Premier League.
It has been heavily rumored that the Saints will make a club-record bid for Broja in the summer as they want to sign him permanently – it remains to be seen how Chelsea respond to this.
