Aston Villa close to losing prolific striker – rivals ready to pounce

The on/off, change/switch, on again/changed situation of Tammy Abraham at Aston Villa seems to be entering the endgame according to Sky Sports.

There was talk of Villa’s rivals, Wolverhampton Wanderers, buying Abraham outright from Chelsea, although this is apparently a no-go deal.

Instead, Villa fans will be waving goodbye say Sky Sports, to Abraham as he leaves for Wolves on a half-season loan arrangement. The article, linked in the opening paragraph, says that “a temporary move could now be agreed” with Wolves looking for a boost to their strikeforce.

Chelsea loanee Abraham has been in sparkling form for Villa since signing on at Villa Park. He’s scored 16 goals in the first half of the season, and is a key reason in Villa looking to push on for a play-off place.

The headline thing that Abraham will bring to Wolves is the very thing that Villa fans will worry about losing – a goal threat. The 21-year-old has shown that he’s able to tuck them away in impressive style during loans at Bristol City and Swansea.

Villa currently sit in 10th place in the Championship table, five points shy of the last play-off place currently held by Derby on 43 points. With Villa looking to kick-on from where they are now, Abraham’s goals will be vital.

You can argue that if he goes, then Villa’s chances of reaching to play-off picture will diminish. Aside from Abraham’s red-hot form, Villa’s main strikers are somewhat cooler. Ivorian Jonathan Kodjia has just the six goals, with Anwar El Ghazi, Conor Hourihane and defender James Chester all on four apiece.

For now, though, it looks like Villa will have to explore other options as they ready to say goodbye and thank you to Tammy Abraham.
