Chelsea loanee Armando Broja, who is impressing at Vitesse, has set himself the lofty target of attempting to ‘surpass’ club legend Didier Drogba at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues academy graduate has excelled at youth level and made his senior debut after coming on for Olivier Giroud in a victory over Everton in March of last season.

Broja, 19, was sent out on loan to Vitesse for the 2020/21 campaign to gain more first-team experience and has dazzled at the Eredivisie club with nine goals and two assists in 20 league games.

The Albania international striker is already looking to the future and named Drogba, who scored 164 goals for the Blues, as the player that he is looking to eclipse in his career at the west London club.

‘I was like: ‘Wow! That’s Frank Lampard, [Didier] Drogba or John Terry right in front of me’, when I would see them around,’ he told Goal.

‘I loved to take pictures with them because I wanted to be them. I wanted to be in their shoes at the top level.

‘Now I am approaching the age they were when they were playing, I want to try and surpass Drogba.

‘It might not be easy, but that’s my mentality and how I am feeling.’

Despite almost reaching double figures for goals in his first full season of senior football, Broja is still hungry for more.

‘Nine goals and two assists is good but I am never satisfied,’ he added.

‘I want to get more goals and assists to keep tallying them up.

‘I have played over 1000 minutes and I have 11 goal contributions. It is not bad but I want more goals and assists. I want to do more.’
