Tammy Abraham will depart Aston Villa and return to parent club Chelsea at the end of the season as he doesn’t have a buying option attached to his loan contract. After scoring 21 goals in 29 Championship games, Abraham has attracted a lot of interest in his signature and will have his pick of clubs to join if he wanted out of Chelsea this summer.

According to The Sun (h/t Birmingham Live), RB Leipzig are considering a £20m bid to bring the 21-year-old to the Bundesliga, but Abraham’s asking price is likely to be a lot higher. He has three more years on his contract at Chelsea and is one of the most promising English strikers in the market. If Liverpool can sell Dominic Solanke for £19m, Abraham should be worth much more.

The England international has scored 49 goals in 103 games in the Championship and Premier League and won’t turn 22 until October. Abraham has been in the top-five for most Championship goals in two of the last three seasons, so Chelsea will expect a premium if they are to sell him.

Tottenham had a £25m bid for Abraham rejected in August 2018 while Wolverhampton Wanderers tried and failed to sign him for £20m in January 2019. It may take more than £30m+ for Chelsea to consider selling the centre-forward given his potential and it may take the promise of Premier League football next season for Abraham to leave the club permanently.
