Gamble: Aston Villa fans react to Tammy Abraham transfer claims

Tammy Abraham was back in the Aston Villa line-up last Saturday and back among the goals too.

The young striker tucked away a penalty to give his side the advantage going into the second leg of their play-off semi-final with West Brom after a 2-1 victory.

However, Abraham has now emerged as the subject of a possible £25m permanent switch to the club, per The Telegraph. Currently, the 21-year-old is only on loan from Chelsea.

Having been in phenomenal form this season, you’d be forgiven for thinking Villa supporters would be delighted with the news. That was far from the case, though, with certain members of their fanbase sceptical about the magnitude of the transfer on Twitter.

One fan said that spending that much money would be a big gamble and represents a steep price. Another supporter claimed they’d rather the money was spent on Axel Tuanzebe and Tyrone Mings instead.

A couple of fans suggested they couldn’t see the deal happening, making reference to his parent club’s transfer embargo.

Abraham has scored 26 goals in 38 appearances for Villa this season, playing a monumental role in ensuring they’re still in the hunt for promotion.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
