Chelsea are reportedly considering selling young striker Tammy Abraham in January according to a report on Standard Sport.

Abraham has scored 12 goals in 16 appearances for Aston Villa and you would expect the club to keep the striker and not cash in.

According to Standard Sport, Chelsea are considering cashing in on Abraham to fund a January move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

Chelsea reportedly believe they can get a considerable amount on Abraham due to his good form for Aston Villa.

While Abraham joined Aston Villa on a season-long deal, Chelsea have a recall option in place.

Newcastle tried to acquire him on loan in 2017 only to be beaten by Swansea and they are reportedly interested in a permanent move for the young striker.

Crystal Palace are also in the running for Abraham, although they are also interested in taking former Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke on loan from Liverpool.

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith admits he is unsure of Tammy Abraham’s future at the club with Crystal Palace and Newcastle reportedly interested in signing the 21-year-old.

“I’ve no idea about the contract situation if I am honest. All we can do is work with him, we have a good relationship with Chelsea,” Smith told SkySports.

“Eddie Newton [Chelsea’s loan technical coach] was up here over a month ago, looking and checking at his development.

“He’s been developing with us all the time. He is enjoying his football and I think that is a big thing in the development of the young lad’s future.

“He wants to go and keep scoring goals for us and that’s what we are in control of at the moment.”
