Chelsea deal expected with prolific forward said to be in transfer talks

Having celebrated a Premier League title win, the Chelsea fans still partying in the Transfer Tavern are ready for a big summer of activity. 

While the idea of discussing big transfer target to light up Stamford Bridge next season is far more appealing than talking about potential exits, reports from the Daily Telegraph have proved interesting today.

They claim the Blues have given both Brighton and Newcastle United permission to talk to striker Tammy Abraham about the notion of a loan move to either side over the course of the summer.

The 19-year-old notched 26 goals in all competitions while on loan with Bristol City in the campaign just past and is reportedly in line for a new long-term deal in west London.

Still, the Premier League champions are thought to want to loan him out for another season to further his development. Indeed, Chelsea are understood to have snubbed permanent interest in their academy graduate, as they look to integrate him into the first-team after next year.

The Seagulls are reportedly leading the Toon Army in the race to land him, much to the delight of our locals from the south coast.

Thoughts?
