Aston Villa only interested in loan deal for Tammy Abraham — report

Yeah, not happening

Aston Villa have reportedly revived their interest in Tammy Abraham, who seems likely to be on the move from Chelsea, however, as Sky Sports and the Daily Mail report, the Villans are only interested in a loan move at the moment — having invested around £67m on forwards in the last two summer transfer windows, since their return to the Premier League already (Ollie Watkins, Bertrand Traoré, and Wesley Moraes).

This offer however is unlikely to entice Chelsea, especially if our potential move for Romelu Lukaku goes through.

Villa head coach, Dean Smith is said to hold Tammy in high regard, but apparently not high enough to convince his employers to make a proper transfer offer — though perhaps that will change if Jack Grealish’s potential departure to Manchester City comes to fruition.

Abraham, who’s also been linked with Arsenal, West Ham, and Atalanta, does have two years left on his Chelsea contract and he’s been actively and happily involved in preseason, which gives us a bit of leeway in our decision-making this summer.
