Aston Villa are interested in bringing back Tammy Abraham but the Chelsea striker is determined to fight Timo Werner for a first-team spot under Frank Lampard
- Aston Villa have asked about bringing back ace Tammy Abraham from Chelsea
- The 22-year-old frontman is eager to stay with the Blues and fight for his place
- Abraham netted 26 goals for Villa and helped fire them to promotion in 2019
- But after a successful season at Chelsea the youngster appears set to stay put
Abraham scored 26 goals for the Midlands outfit and helped fire them to top-flight promotion in 2019, but has enjoyed a successful breakthrough campaign with Chelsea.
The youngster is keen to once again prove his first-team credentials in west London and looks set to turn down any advances made this summer.
Aston Villa asked about Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham but the star is keen to stay at the club
Chelsea have recruited former RB Leipzig hotshot Timo Werner as well as Hakim Ziyech to strengthen their frontline, and playmaker Kai Havertz is also expected to join imminently from Bayer Leverkusen.
It appears that Abraham wants to be part of Frank Lampard’s efforts to challenge for silverware next season – despite the recent approach from Villa.
After falling short in their attempts to sign Abraham, Villa remain locked in talks with Brentford for Ollie Watkins.

After missing out on Abraham, Villa remain locked in talks over Brentford ace Ollie Watkins
The 24-year-old is understood to be Villa’s top target in attack and is valued at £25million by the Championship club.
He netted 26 goals in all competitions last term as Brentford missed out on the play-off final.
Villa’s billionaire owners, Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, will again back Dean Smith in the transfer market after splashing out more than £140m for the previous campaign.
