Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has been in good form on loan to Aston Villa in the Championship. The 21-year-old has banged in 24 goals so far this season and is in hot form for the Villans.
The in-form striker has been in good goal-scoring form in recent games, with three goals in Villa’s last four games. However, there were injury concerns he could be out for a long period after he was taken off midway through the second half in Villa’s game against Bristol City, as the 21-year-old was taken off with a hamstring issue during Villa’s 2-1 win over Bristol City last Saturday.
Villa boss Dean Smith has eased concerns about the fitness of Tammy Abraham after the Chelsea loanee was taken off through injury during the weekend.
Smith has now revealed to the Birmingham Mail that he took Abraham off only as a precautionary measure.
“Tammy was fatigued, he has put an awful lot into the last two or three games and his hamstring had just gone tight,” he explained.
Abraham has scored 24 goals this season and is the Championship’s second highest scorer behind Teemu Pukki of Norwich City, who has 27.
Abraham has shown that he’s ready for topflight football and is the latest Chelsea player to be linked with a move to the German league after Bayern Munich submitted a bid for 18-year-old Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi in January.
According to The Sun, Bundesliga side RB Leipzig want to make a move for the striker in the summer.
It is believed Abraham could be tempted to join RB Leipzig following the success of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson in the German Bundesliga.
RB Leipzig see Abraham as a potential long-term replacement for Timo Werner, who is set to leave RB Leipzig at the end of the season.
RB Leipzig are considering offering Chelsea a fee of £20million for Abraham this summer.
