Aston Villa ‘monitoring Tammy Abraham as Dean Smith looks to reunite with Chelsea’s £40m outcast following sensational loan spell during the Villans’ promotion-winning season’
- Aston Villa are reportedly monitoring Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham
- The Englishman, 23, has fallen down the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel
- The Blues are understood to be open to selling the £40m man this summer
- Abraham enjoyed a superb loan spell with Villa during their promotion season
- Villa are expected to face strong competition for the Chelsea star’s signature
Aston Villa are reportedly monitoring Tammy Abraham with the out-of-favour Chelsea striker understood to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge this summer.
The Englishman, 23, has fallen out of favour under new boss Thomas Tuchel, having enjoyed considerable game time under former manager Frank Lampard before his dismissal in January.
Abraham missed out on the 18-man squad that defeated Manchester City in the FA Cup semi final this month and was an unused sub in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League this week.

The West Londoners are understood to be open to offers for their academy product this summer, and are willing to accept an offer of around £40m to part ways with the striker.
And according to The Mirror, Villa could be an exit option for Abraham, with manager Dean Smith reportedly keen on reuniting with the striker following his strong loan spell with the club two seasons ago.
Abraham bagged 26 goals in 40 games for the Villans, helping them win promotion to the Premier League after beating Fulham in the play off final at Wembley.

The West Midlands outfit were interested in making Abraham’s stay permanent upon their promotion to the top flight, but the Blues were unwilling to sell the striker at the time.
The 23-year-old still has connections with the Villa squad, with Chelsea legend John Terry still a coach working alongside Smith in the dugout.
Abraham’s contract runs out in 2023 and he would certainly add the firepower needed at Villa with the club heavily relying upon talisman Jack Grealish.
Villa have enjoyed a superb second season in the top flight this campaign, but would face strong competition for Abraham’s signature with Leicester City reportedly keeping tabs on the Englishman.
