Could Aston Villa benefit if £50m Alvaro Morata deal collapses?

Aston Villa could yet reportedly bring Tammy Abraham back to Bodymoor Heath.

The Birmingham Mail claimed on Friday that Aston Villa aren't ruling out a move for Tammy Abraham.

Aston Villa signed Wesley Moraes earlier this month in a £22 million deal which seemed to put paid to Dean Smith's plan of bringing the Chelsea striker back to the club.

Abraham netted 26 goals in 40 Championship outings last season, playing a huge role in leading the Villa Park side back to the Premier League.

Fans fell in love with the young hitman and if reports from Spain are accurate, Smith may have a good chance of bringing the £25 million-rated marksman back on a permanent basis.

 

According to The Telegraph, Atletico Madrid could terminate Alvaro Morata's loan and send him back to Stamford Bridge. Unless the Spanish side cough up £50 million for the Spanish striker, the Blues will cancel the agreement which would see him return to West London.

This potentially benefits Aston Villa because there's no chance that Abraham is going to play regularly ahead of Morata, which may convince the 21-year-old that he needs to leave for the sake of first-team football that he has become accustomed to.

Obviously other Premier League clubs could express an interest, but he already knows Smith and his system, so maybe, just maybe, a return to the West Midlands might appeal to him.

If you're a Villa fan, you'd be hoping that Chelsea make good on their threat to recall Morata.
