What's the latest on Tammy Abraham coming back to Aston Villa?

Journalist Graeme Bailey has revealed that the Villans are keen on bringing the England international back to the club ahead of the 2023/24 campaign as NSWE eye a swoop for the attacker.

The reporter Tweeted: "Aston Villa ready to move for Roma striker Tammy Abraham. Abraham remains a fans favourite after his previous loan spell with the club and would be a hugely popular arrival."

In the accompanying article, it has been revealed that the Italian giants are set to demand a fee in the region of £40m for the marksman and that Villa are not put off by that valuation.

Imagine him & Ollie Watkins

NSWE could find Unai Emery a dream partner for Ollie Watkins by bringing Abraham back to the club where he spent the 2018/19 season on loan - scoring 25 goals in 37 appearances in the Championship.

The former Chelsea centre-forward has been superb for Roma since arriving in Italy in the summer of 2021 and has proven himself to be a lethal striker who can also create for his teammates.

Since the start of last season, the 25-year-old has plundered 23 goals in 54 starts in the Serie A, numbers that come after the attacker found the net 21 times in 37 starts in his final two Premier League campaigns at Stamford Bridge.

The Englishman, who was once dubbed a "goal machine" by former professional Stephen Elliott, has also showcased his creative talents to go along with his terrific scoring ability.

In the Serie A, Abraham has created six 'big chances' and provided his teammates with 1.1 key passes per game across 22 appearances this season, which shows that the dynamo can regularly create opportunities for others whilst also being clinical with his own shots.

He could form a deadly partnership with Watkins at the top end of the pitch in Emery's narrow 4-4-2 formation. The current Villa forward has been on fire in the Premier League with four goals in his last four appearances this season and has caught the eye with his creative quality in the past.

In the 2021/22 campaign, the ex-Brentford predator scored 11 goals and produced one key pass per game, whilst creating four 'big chances' in total. This indicates that the striker has the quality to regularly find the back of the net and provide others with chances to score.

Therefore, by signing their ex-loanee, Villa could well have two excellent centre-forwards who can cause havoc in the opposition half. A tantalising prospect for everyone involved at the club.
