Wolves 'told price' for transfer target as Premier League swoop imminent

The latest Wolves transfer news on Deadline Day as a Premier League club names its price for a Gary O'Neil target.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly been told how much it will take to land Chelsea striker Armando Broja on loan before the winter transfer deadline.

Wolves are hoping to bring in a new striker for the rest of the season following the loan departures of Fabio Silva and Sasa Kalajdzic. Broja is a priority target to fill the void, while a move for Brazil international Yuri Alberto fell through late on Wednesday night.

An approach for Broja was rejected a few days ago as Wolves' offer of a basic six-month loan with a £25 million obligation to buy in the summer wasn't desired by Chelsea. The Blues have changed their stance on Deadline Day, however, with a straight loan now being considered – as long as a big fee is paid.

The Daily Mail reports the amount in question is a minimum of £5 million as Chelsea look to coup some funds. Broja must be given consistent game time, though, so his potential suitors cannot give him merely a bench role. Wolves are expected to return with a new offer imminently, while Fulham are also keen.

Broja, still only 22 years of age, has scored just three goals in 38 senior appearances for Chelsea. He did net nine times while on loan at Southampton two seasons ago, however, and has taken a while to get back up to speed following a serious anterior cruciate ligament injury
