Aston Villa are fighting hard to secure the loan services of Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham before the end of the month – as recently covered by The Telegraph.
Abraham, 20, scored five Premier League goals for Swansea City last season, but could not prevent the Welsh outfit from being relegated to the Championship.
The England international is back with his parent club, but has not been involved in the early stages of the 2018-19 Premier League season amid talk of an exit.
A number of clubs have been credited with an interest in the centre-forward, and it is understood that Villa are very much in the hunt.

That said, Birmingham Live have reported that the 6ft 3in ace is currently reluctant to drop down to the Championship as he feels that it would not be the correct career move.
A lot could happen in the final days of the window, and the Villa supporters have been reacting to the speculation on social media – a selection of which can be seen below:
Let him carry on sitting on the bench down there then, move onto other options 🤷🏻♂️

Obviously thinks he’s too good for us. Move along. Never cut it at Swansea last year anyway.

It’s amazing how lots of potential loan signings say the same thing. But regular game time is surely the main aim. Maybe that shows the mentality of certain individuals.

Don’t chase him then if he thinks he’s too good for us

Says the kid rotting on the bench at Chelsea, do these kids not see what happened to KDB, Salah, Lukaku, etc… they all moved away and ended up back at the elite level as star men

Didn’t he have a mare at Swansea? Championship might be his level
