According to The Sun, Wolves are preparing to make a shock £18 million bid to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham – who is currently plying his trade on loan with Championship outfit Aston Villa – on a permanent deal in this January transfer window.
Aston Villa will be devastated to lose the services of the 21-year-old, but the 2-cap England international must take this chance to return to the top flight.
Molineux is the perfect destination for the young striker, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s newly-promoted side play the kind of fast-paced, attacking football that ought to bring the best out of Abraham.
Abraham is unlikely to have a future at Stamford Bridge, so a switch to Wolves would be his best chance of securing Premier League football in the immediate future.

Wolves currently lack quality depth amongst their striking options. Raul Jimenez has been in fine form so far this season but his back up, Leo Bonatini, does not offer enough goal threat to be an effective option for Wolves at the highest level.
Abraham, however, can give Santo an alternative option to Jimenez. The Chelsea man’s pace and 6’3” frame would make him a valuable weapon in Santo’s arsenal. Abraham’s ability to play off the shoulder of the last defender and make penetrative runs in behind would make Wolves an altogether more dangerous counter-attacking force.
Not only would a switch to Molineux be a great move for Abraham, but the striker would make the Midlands club a far more versatile outfit too.
