Premier League rivals eyeing move for Chelsea towering forward

By | March 2, 2021

Aston Villa and West Ham United are named as potential buyers for Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham, the Telegraph report.

The Englishman is facing an uncertain future at Stamford bridge, with the club yet to agree a fresh contract.

And the Telegraph claim that the Hammers and the Villa could both be keen to snap him up in the summer.

The report says that the Irons will ‘certainly’ be interested in the player if he becomes available, while the centre-forward also still has admirers at Villa.

Tammy spent a year on loan at the Villa and helped fire them back into the top-flight, but the club were unable to sign him on a permanent deal.

Villa have since purchased Ollie Watkins, but with Tammy, who playmaker Jack Grealish once labelled as ‘unbelievable’ (Tribuna), potentially on the market, a transfer to Dean Smith’s team still seemingly remains a possibility.

West Ham, meantime, will be in the market for a forward in the summer transfer market – as they failed to bring in a new number nine in January.

With the Blues academy product a proven scorer at PL level he could be an appealing prospect for David Moyes’s side.

Tammy certainly possesses the physical presence and aerial ability to thrive in a side managed by the former Manchester United head coach.

But getting a summer deal over the line could be difficult, as interest is allegedly mounting from European clubs as well as sides in England. All Rights Reserved 2019
