Aston Villa fans on Twitter are loving link to Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham

According to the Daily Star, Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce is hoping to sign Tammy Abraham on loan from Chelsea before the window shuts at the end of August, and Villa fans on Twitter have been buzzing with the rumour.

The 20-year-old spent last season in the Premier League on loan at Swansea, scoring eight goals and providing five assists in all competitions and Bruce is hoping to convince him to make the step down to the Championship for a promotion push.

The 6ft 3in striker has been given a boost at Stamford Bridge though, with new boss Maurizio Sarri sending Michy Batshuayi back out on loan, meaning that Abraham is joined by just Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud as strikers in the first-team squad.

Villa suffered financial problems earlier in the summer after losing to Fulham in the Championship playoff final and failing to achieve promotion to the Premier League. However, with new majority owners now in place the club are starting to spend money again and were also able to hold onto Jack Grealish amid interest from Spurs in the transfer window.

Check out some of the best reactions from Villa fans to the Abraham rumours below.
