Aston Villa could be set to lose Tammy Abraham in what would be a major blow for Dean Smith’s side.
Aston Villa fans want Neal Maupay brought in by Dean Smith if Tammy Abraham does go.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to sign Abraham from Chelsea, and if the deal goes through his loan at Villa Park will be cut short.
That would be a massive blow for Villa, as Abraham has led the line brilliantly for Smith’s side this term.
But Villa fans already have chosen their replacement for Abraham, if he does depart.
The claret and blues support appear to want Maupay snapped up from Brentford, if social media website Twitter is anything to go by.
Abraham goes, Maupay comes in #AVFC— Dan Smith (@smithyy02) January 2, 2019
If the rumours are true about Tammy going to Wolves then I hope we can ship out hogan for some money and throw it at Brentford for Maupay, he’s definitely a Dean Smith player and shouldn’t be hard to persuade #AVFC #UTV— JJ De La Boy (@JewsonJosephYo) January 2, 2019
If #Wolves sign @tammyabraham for £18m then they will have made an incredible signing. Won’t be happy at all but good luck to the lad. Class player. Sign Maupay. Get rid of some deadwood & focus on backline. #UTV #AVFC #VTID— Steven Whiting (@Steven_Whiting) January 2, 2019
#avfc time to go get neal maupay— James (@ja2k13) January 2, 2019
Hogan would score in this team. If we can sort out our defence we won’t need to score as many. If Abraham goes I can see us signing Maupay in the summer at the latest #avfc— Luke Marshall (@marshallavfc) January 2, 2019
As much as I love Abraham but he won’t be missed if he leaves. Get Maupay in from Brentford and he scores the same amount of goals as Abraham if not more. Tammy is undoubtedly class but he’s not that important #avfc— Ryan (@Ryxn_AVFC) January 2, 2019
Obviously not ideal losing Tammy but Kodjia can just revert to CF and we have some of the best wide players to support him. Far from a derailing. Maupay is definitely worth a punt. #AVFC— Dan Cooper (@DanCooper9) January 2, 2019
Maupay worked with Smith at Brentford, so he is a player who the Villa boss knows well.
So far this season Maupay has netted 15 goals, which is just one fewer than Abraham has managed for Villa.
If the claret and blues were to bring in the French forward they would likely have to spend big, as Brentford would be desperate to keep hold of their top scorer.
