Chelsea set to bag £38m from the sale of this unwanted forward: Superb bit of business
Aston Villa seem to be on a spending spree this summer and as per the latest updates they are willing to break the bank for Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham.
In a recent article, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano had claimed that the Blues are yet to make a final decision on Abraham but it’s pretty obvious he has no future at the club.
A few days ago he had written in his column for the Benchwarmers: “Chelsea will certainly buy a new striker but no decision has yet been made.
“Borussia Dortmund are hoping to keep Haaland, while as mentioned Lukaku is not on the market at the moment.
“Pending a final decision on the new club for Tammy Abraham who wants to have more space, AC Milan asked Olivier Giroud for free after reaching an agreement on personal terms with the French forward.”
Tammy Abraham spent one full season on loan at Villa Park and as per Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are ready to spend as much as £38 million to bring him back.
The report cites journalist Ruby Galetti saying: “Villa are in ‘advanced talks’ with Chelsea over Abraham and could soon meet the club’s asking price for the striker, according to Italian journalist Rudy Galetti.
“Galetti states that Villa are preparing to make an offer of 45million euros (£38m) to bring Abraham back to Villa Park.”
Last season, the 23-year-old played in only 22 Premier League games for Chelsea most of which came in the first half of the season. In the final few months, Tammy Abraham was nowhere close to the starting line-up as he played only 17 minutes during Chelsea’s final 13 league matches.
£38 million might seem like a big number but he is currently valued at £34.20 million and has two years left on his current deal. So, this offer from Aston Villa seems pretty fair.
On the other hand, Thomas Tuchel is planning to bring in someone like Romelu Lukaku or Erling Haaland this summer so a transfer fee of around £38 million will go a lot way in helping them fund the arrival of their new centre-forward.
