We are keen on recruiting Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, according to the Birmingham Mail. However, it seems the player is reluctant to drop down a division and is looking for another loan spell in the Premier League.
The 20-year-old struggled somewhat during his time at Swansea last season, scoring just five goals in 31 Premier League appearances. There were mitigating circumstances with the forward having started just 15 times and playing for a struggling team.
Still, whether another top flight club will take a chance on him, it is not known. If he can’t secure a move to another top division side, I asked fans whether he’d be welcome at Villa Park. A huge majority think he would be a perfect fit:
I certainly agree with the majority here. Abraham is still learning the game but the fact he has already previously scored 20+ goals in the Championship suggests he would be a massive hit if he does move on loan.
Of course, there are no guarantees, but he would definitely strengthen our attack if he were to join before the end of the month.
