It’s no secret that Aston Villa are interested in Tammy Abraham. But who isn’t?
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Aston Villa have joined the hunt for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.
The 23-year-old’s contract at Chelsea is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
In 82 appearances for Chelsea, Abraham has managed to score 30 goals, and create 12 goals for his teammates.
The 23-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England. As a member of England national football team, Abraham won 6 caps and he scored one goal.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Aston Villa.
Tammy Abraham appears to be among Dean Smith’s top choices to reinforce his striker options. The England international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of striker Smith wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Villa are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The England international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Dean Smith’s side.
According to the report, “Aston Villa have jumped into the battle for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham. The Telegraph says Villa are now trying to lure Abraham back to Villa Park as his Chelsea days look numbered. Arsenal have been linked with the striker, but no deal is yet complete and the Midlands outfit want to pounce. Abraham previously enjoyed a loan spell at Aston Villa, who have recently signed Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen. Much may depend on Jack Grealish’s future, but if he leaves Villa will have the funds to sign the Blues forward.”

Aston Villa have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the England international.
Tammy Abraham is also being watched by Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.
Good signing for Aston Villa?
A move away from Chelsea will not be only the best move for Abraham, but also for the club.
Given Tammy Abraham’s talent and potential, he would be a very good signing for Villa in the long run.
He has all the skillset required to be a success story at Aston Villa. Therefore, it makes sense for Dean Smith to step up his attempts to bring the England striker to Premier League side.
If Smith sees him as the right man for his side, Aston Villa should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
