Tammy Abraham, of Chelsea, has reportedly been linked to a return to Aston Villa.
Abraham ‘s location at Stamford Bridge is under pressure after RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner arrives.
Despite scoring 15 goals in his first campaign for the Premier League, Abraham could miss out on Werner’s first team opportunities in the upcoming 2020/21 season.
Villa wants to give the 22-year-old the chance to be a first-choice striker at the Prem, according to the Daily Mail, and has approached officials from Chelsea.
He scored 26 goals in 40 games while on loan and was called the year before returning to Stamford Bridge in the league’s squad
Villa manager Dean Smith wants to reinforce Abraham’s forward line, but they will need to put a persuasive bid on the table.
Apparently, the striker wants to remain next season at Chelsea and fight for his place inside the squad. In addition to signing Werner for £54 million, he will have to compete for a starting position with Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi.
If Villa is offering the player a loan move or a permanent move is uncertain. A loan deal could be on the cards in January, however, if Abraham finds his playing time considerably reduced.
If the deal for Abraham fails, Villa will be signing goalscorer Ollie Watkins in advanced talks with Brentford. The Englishman has scored 26 goals in all last campaign competitions and is worth £ 25million.The price of Brentford means that the West Midlands side will have to smash their record of transfers to bolster their attacking options.
Their latest record is that they paid £ 22.5 million for the Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes. Back in January the player sustained a cruciate knee ligament injury and looks likely to miss the start of the next season.
