Newcastle United are the favourites to sign Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham in the summer according to odds released by Ladbrokes.
Abraham is currently on loan at Bristol City and while he was an unknown outside of West London last year, her certainly announced himself on the scene this season. He has scored a stunning 22 goals for the Robins and is one of the biggest reasons they aren’t in the relegation zone this season. But with him being so good this year, it is unlikely that he will be heading back to Ashton Gate and as the Chelsea first team doesn’t beckon yet, he’ll probably be loaned out again.
And it appears that his new home for next season will be St James Park as Newcastle are the favourites to sign him, with Ladbrokes pricing them at 3/1 to be Abraham’s next club. They have been able to get a close look at the starlet this year as they are in the same league, with Abraham playing against Newcastle at the start of the year when he was just starting to emerge as a star player. However he didn’t end up scoring against the Magpies.
However it does seem that Newcastle will need to be promoted if they want to sign Abraham as all their competition will be coming from teams from the top tier of English football. Stoke City are the second favourites to sign the youngster with them being priced at 4/1, while West Bromwich Albion and Bournemouth are also likely new homes for Abraham.
