Bad news for Aston Villa and Wolves as Red Bull Leipzig enter the race for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham

Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham is currently on loan at Aston Villa.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham faces an uncertain future this summer after his loan spell at Aston Villa reaches its conclusion.

The young forward could have a future at Stamford Bridge because Chelsea have been slapped with a transfer ban.

Alternatively, Aston Villa could try to sign him permanently or on loan again but this would be dependent on their promotion to the Premier League.

And Wolves could rekindle their January interest in the England under-21 striker, who has two senior caps to his name.

Sky Sports reported that Abraham rejected a loan move to Premier League Wolves to stay with Aston Villa for the remainder of this campaign.

 

Wolves also discussed a permanent deal for the 21-year-old with talk of an £18m bid (Sky Sports News).

But both Aston Villa and Wolves could be in for summer disappointment as a German club enter the race for Abraham.

According to Sport Bild via Sport Witness, Red Bull Leipzig want the towering centre-forward this summer.

And the lure of Bundesliga football could tempt Abraham to follow in the footsteps of Jadon Sancho and others.

Abraham’s tally of 22 Championship goals ranks him as the third highest scorer in the division and could guide Aston Villa to promotion.

But even if the Villans go up, they would have to fend off interest from RB Leipzig and West Midlands rivals Wolves for Abraham’s permanent services.
