Chelsea and Wolves in talks over move for Tammy Abraham

However, reports of an £18m bid being accepted are premature - and a number of other Premier League clubs are interested and are expected to also enter discussions with Chelsea.

Abraham is now on loan at Championship side Aston Villa and has been clocking regular minutes at Villa Park.

With the striker continuing to impress in the Championship, a host of Premier League sides are said to be monitoring his situation. He's on loan for the season from Chelsea but can be recalled and then loaned out again in January.

Concerns over Financial Fair Play have led to claims that Chelsea could cash in on the player in a deal that may well include a buy-back clause, with the striker not in Maurizio Sarri's immediate plans.

Abraham is now on loan at Aston Villa from Chelsea and the England worldwide has netted 16 Championship goals for the club to top the scoring charts in the second tier.

Abraham scored twice in Tuesday night's 2-2 draw with Queens Park Rangers, the result leaving Villa 10th in the Championship, five points adrift of the play-off places.

Chelsea and Abraham may agree that a Premier League loan can aid his development further during the second half of the campaign, and Villa face the prospect of losing one of their star players earlier than they would have hoped for.
