Newcastle set to make move for Chelsea striker – whether Rafa stays or not – Report

According to the Northern Echo, Newcastle are set to make another summer move for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

The story also states that an approach is likely to be made if Rafa Benitez stays or goes.

The Spaniard tried to sign him on loan two summers ago and the Northern Echo also claim that he’s a player we’ve scouted extensively – not forgetting his age and potential means he fits into Mike Ashley’s ‘under 26’ transfer policy.

It is claimed that Aston Villa will have ‘first refusal’ on the striker – who’s scored 26 goals for them this season – but only if they win promotion back to the Premier League on Monday against Derby at Wembley.

Maurizio Sarri has hinted in the past that Abraham isn’t in his long-term plans at Stamford Bridge.

With a transfer ban likely, I would be surprised if Chelsea agreed to loan him out again, so it’ll be interesting to see what their asking price may be for such a promising young English striker.

He’s a talented young player who’s Championship form has been impressive for a 21-year-old, however I still maintain he is someone we should be signing ALONGSIDE Salomon Rondon.

Abraham is a goalscorer, but I don’t think he’d be able to lead the line, hold up the ball and link the play anything like as well as the big Venezuelan.
