Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has had a successful campaign at Aston Villa this season and he will be looking to top it off by helping them earn promotion to the Premier League.
The 21-year-old has netted 25 goals for Dean Smith’s side in the second tier of English football [transfermarkt], but recent news coming out at Stamford Bridge will interest both Abraham and the current team he is playing for.
Chelsea confirmed on their official website on Wednesday that FIFA have rejected their appeal to overturn their current transfer ban.
As a result, it now means that the London club will not be able to sign any players for the next two transfer windows – the up and coming summer window and the winter window.
If Villa don’t earn promotion then it all but ends their hopes of having Abraham play for them next season, but if they are in England’s top-flight next term then it may well change things.
If Chelsea’s current ban stands then the club will have no choice but to give their academy products a chance in the first-team next season and more than likely Abraham will be one of those players.
There is no doubt that if Villa earn promotion then Dean Smith would like to either loan Abraham once again or sign him on a permanent basis, that’s how influential he has been to the club this season.
