Tammy Abraham may wish to stay at Chelsea, but that is a rather tall order for the youngster since the club already have three veteran strikers for the one starting spot available in the first-team. So it is most likely that he will be joining a club on loan, with a Premier League suitor ready to take him in.

According to the Daily Mail, Brighton are interested in the 20-year-old Chelsea striker. There are other clubs in the race for him in the Championship, namely Aston Villa and Middlesbrough, however, the Premier League is the preferred destination for Abraham as Chelsea want him to keep developing in England’s top level.

Abraham's loan at Swansea last season was not a huge success, as the club struggled to muster anything but relegation to the Championship with a 19th-place finish. Brighton meanwhile finished four places above the Swans, and they have strengthened their attack by adding AZ Alkmaar winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh this summer for £20 million.

Thus, Tammy should not be starved of service at Brighton if he moves there. Unless other Premier League clubs appear on the radar, the Seagulls should have a good chance of landing the youngster’s skills in front of the goal for this season.
