According to the Northern Echo, Newcastle are considering an approach for young Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who’s finishing up an excellent season on loan at Aston Villa.

The Magpies could be set to lose Ayoze Pérez to Inter Milan in the summer, with Napoli apparently also interested in the 25-year-old who has only two years left on his current contract. A rumored €25 million bid from Inter just might be too difficult for them to reject.

In case Pérez ditches the North of England for the North of Italy, a replacement will need to be found. Abraham, who finished as the second-leading goalscorer in the Championship in helping Villa to promotion playoffs, and Swansea winger Daniel James, who’s been linked heavily with Manchester United as well, are two of the front-runners.

And so, Tammy’s list of potential suitors grows, just in case Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri once again consider him unfit for Chelsea’s level. Hopefully that will not be the case.
