According to The Daily Mail, Aston Villa are still interested in signing Tammy Abraham from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

Villa have recently secured the services of Wesley Moraes from Club Brugge for a transfer fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £22 million.

 

The 22-year-old Brazilian forward has arrived at Villa Park with a strong reputation, but The Daily Mail has claimed that Dean Smith’s side are still interested in Abraham and will check the availability of the 21-year-old striker later in the summer transfer window.

Good signing for Aston Villa?

Abraham’s record in the Premier League is not great, and with Chelsea not able to sign players in the summer transfer window due to a ban, the Blues may not be willing to let the England international striker leave.

The youngster, though, was brilliant for Villa in the Championship this past season and was a key figure in the Villans’ promotion to the Premier League via the playoffs.

According to WhoScored, the 21-year-old striker scored 26 goals and provided three assists in 40 Championship appearances for Villa this past season.
