Aston Villa still want to re-sign one of last season’s loan stars. According to The Daily Mail, Aston Villa will still pursue a deal for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham despite signing a forward recently.
The Villans completed a big-money move for Wesley Moraes last week. The Brazilian joins from Club Brugge and is seen as a major coup for newly-promoted Aston Villa.
But the West Midlands club still want Abraham back at Villa Park. Abraham was one of the key men in Aston Villa’s promotion-winning campaign.
The 21-year-old spent the season on loan from Chelsea. And his tally of 26 goals helped Aston Villa earn promotion back to the top-flight.
Now they are back in the Premier League, Aston Villa want to strengthen the squad. And Dean Smith still wants the England U21 striker back to lead the line.
Chelsea have yet to make a decision on Abraham, who wants to compete for a place at Stamford Bridge. Given their transfer ban, Abraham might be given a go. But if he is made available, Aston Villa will probably make another move for him.
With Abraham, Wesley and Jonathan Kodjia, Aston Villa would surely have enough firepower to stay up. Scott Hogan might leave but they would still have three top forwards, as well as youngster Keinan Davis coming through.
Abraham’s ambition is to break into the Chelsea side. But if he is deemed surplus to requirements, he must look for a return to Aston Villa. Under Smith, Abraham was the main man and he would be returning to a familiar environment where he is already a popular figure among fans.
