Chelsea striker Abraham linked with return to Aston Villa

    Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham has been reportedly linked with a return to Aston Villa.

    Abraham’s place at Stamford Bridge is under threat following the arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.

    Despite scoring 15 goals in his first Premier League campaign, Abraham could lose out on first team opportunities in the upcoming 2020/21 season to Werner.

    According to the Daily Mail, Villa want to give the 22-year-old the chance to be a first choice striker in the Prem and have contacted Chelsea officials.

    The player was an important part of the club’s promotion from the Championship during the 2018/19 season.

    He scored 26 goals in 40 games while on loan and was named in the league’s team of the year before returning to Stamford Bridge.

    Villa boss Dean Smith wants Abraham to strengthen his forward line, although they may have to put a convincing offer on the table.

    The striker apparently wants to stay at Chelsea next season and fight for his place in the team. In addition to £54 million signing Werner, he will have to contend with Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi for a starting place.

    It is unclear whether Villa are offering the player a loan move or a permanent move. However, a loan deal could be on the cards in January if Abraham finds his playing time significantly reduced.

    Should the deal for Abraham fail, Villa are in advanced talks to sign Brentford goalscorer Ollie Watkins. The Englishman scored 26 goals in all competitions last campaign and is valued at £25 million.

    Brentford’s valuation means the West Midlands side would have to break their transfer record in order to bolster their attacking options.

    Their current record is the £22.5 million they paid for Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes. The player suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury back in January and looks set to miss the start of the next season.
