Blues are expected to make a summer move for Bordeaux striker and Stoke loanee Josh Maja, according to a report from The Sunday People (print edition, April 24).

Blues were said to have made a transfer enquiry for the 23-year-old in the January transfer window, per GFFN.

Maja, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Fulham and Stoke City will be hoping he can gain more first team experience in the Championship.

Only scoring 9 goals for Bordeaux in 47 appearances, the Englishman has found it hard to get firing again since his move from Sunderland in 2019.

Scoring just once for Stoke and making three assists, Maja has only one year left on his contract which means a permanent move is likely to be on the cards this summer.

With the future of Nottingham Forest loanee Lyle Taylor up in the air it’s no surprise to see attention rise around Maja once again as the summer transfer window approaches.
