Aston Villa gained promotion to the English Premier League after beating Derby County in the Championship play-off final, and Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham played a key role for Aston Villa last season.
The 21-year-old played a major role in Villa’s comeback to the Premier League as he scored 26 goals for the Villains, spearheading the attack and ended up as the league’s second highest goalscorer.
Only Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki scored more goals in the Championship last season than Abraham with 29 and the Villains are keen on securing his services again in the Premier League, and are looking to place a bid of £25m for the young forward.
Abraham seems to have said farewell to Aston Villa as he looks forward to next season with Chelsea.
In a post on Instagram, Abraham said: “Where do I start. Firstly I want to thank everyone @avfcofficial for a unforgettable season ❤️felt the love and support from the get go & we did it together! This club will always have a place in my heart. @avfcofficial welcome to the premier league 🤘🏾😘❤️#UTV#TA18”
Abraham has revealed that his aim next season is to play at the highest level, and possibly with Chelsea.
Abraham said: “The aim is to be at the highest level and playing the best football and, if Chelsea say they need me there, I will put 100% in.
“I am a person who believes in myself. So, wherever I am at, I believe I will get in and play and score goals.”
The England international has made three senior appearances for Chelsea and spent the previous three seasons on loan at Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa.
