Aston Villa are interested in signing Tammy Abraham from Premier League rivals Chelsea in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Mail.

It has been reported that Villa have asked Chelsea about the striker, but the player himself wants to stay at Stamford Bridge and fight for his place.

The 22-year-old spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Villa, and, according to WhoScored, scored 26 goals and provided three assists in 40 Championship matches.

It has been reported that although Villa want the England international striker, he wants to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place.

Tough for Tammy Abraham

Abraham did well for Chelsea last season, as he scored 15 goals and provided three assists in the Premier League, according to WhoScored.

Perhaps the youngster could have been a bit more regular in terms of scoring goals, but overall on a personal level, he had a successful campaign.

With Chelsea having signed Timo Werner this summer, it is going to be tough for Abraham to play week in and week out next season.

Need for a striker

Villa need to sign a striker in the summer transfer window, as manager Dean Smith cannot become over-reliant on Wesley Moraes, who had injury problems last season and scored five goals in 21 Premier League matches, according to WhoScored.
