Chelsea could recall in-form Englishman from loan spell

December 6, 2018

Chelsea are reportedly considering to recall Tammy Abraham from his loan spell at Championship club Aston Villa.

The England Under-21s international has found back of the net 11 times in 14 games since dropping down for a second stint in the second tier.

According to The Mirror, the Blues can secure services of Abraham back to Stamford Bridge during the January transfer window should they wish and integrate him into their first-team squad in order to strengthen their offensive end.

However, a separate report carried by the Birmingham Mail claimed that Aston Villa are confident Chelsea will respect the season-long loan agreement and will allow Abraham to remain and help them to secure a promotion to Premier League.

Villa assistant coach John Terry maintains a strong working relationship with the Blues, which the West Midlands outfit hope will help them to keep him at the club.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are reportedly hoping to lower the price tag for Christian Pulisic who has been valued at £80m by Dortmund.

The Blues are believed to have been locked in discussions with German club over a January deal for the USA international, who has also been touted as a long-term target for Liverpool.

Rather than making 21-year-old winger for their second-most expensive player ever behind Kepa Arrizabalaga, but, Goal.com claimed that the Blues will instead negotiate down the fee as talks continue to progress between the two parties.
