Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been giving their thoughts on a possible big-money move for Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham on social media.
Dean Smith and John Terry remain huge admirers of the former Villa loanee, according to the Birmingham Mail.
Abraham’s Chelsea struggles under Tuchel
Abraham has only started three league games under Thomas Tuchel, with the new Blues boss preferring Olivier Giroud to the Englishman. The 23-year-old has still managed to net 12 times in all competitions this season, though, with his current Stamford Bridge deal running until 2023.
The Birmingham Mail asked Football.London’s Chelsea reporter Adam Newson all about Abraham and the possibility of a return to the Midlands materialising.
Newson believes that any deal for Abraham would have to exceed the £28m Villa spent on Ollie Watkins last summer and would depend on Chelsea bringing in a striker of their own.
Would you like to sign Abraham?
Villa fans react
@AVFC_News shared the Q&A with Newson on Twitter, asking supporters if they would like to see Abraham arrive in a club-record deal.
Here is what these Villa fans had to say in response, with one labelling Abraham as the ‘perfect’ player to feature alongside Watkins and Jack Grealish.
“Without doubt! Young, hungry, natural finisher, works hard, perfect to go up alongside Ollie and Jack!!”
“In a heartbeat!”
“100% – no brainer”
“I’d sign him up but need a few more players on top”
