Aston Villa have made an enquiry for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, according to reports in the English media.
The Villans had the 22-year-old on loan for a season when they were promoted from the Championship two years ago and they are still keen on re-signing him. However, after a year in the Blues’ first team, the forward is said to want to stay at Stamford Bridge.
Despite scoring 18 goals in all competitions last season, the arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig has led some to question whether Abraham has a future at Chelsea. Supporters on Twitter are very much split down the middle on whether the club should keep him:
£40M and he is yours

He's in for a big surprise…
Giroud's the 2nd choice

Love him and his attitude, but he wont be starting over Werner, and at this moment Giroud is the better 2nd choice. If he wants to fight for the spot I applaud him though.

Abraham needs to stay. Plenty of games, rotation, injuries etc. We'll need everyone.

Abraham is still a young striker with huge potential. He may have struggled with his form at the back end of last season but that was mainly due to ankle issue which made training difficult.
If he can recapture the form he showed at the start of the campaign, he will certainly provide stern competition for the likes of Werner and Olivier Giroud.
