Football Deal: Chelsea have now placed a £40m price tag on their striker.
Chelsea FC have reportedly slapped a £40m price tag on one of their club stars as they look to recoup money from his sale.
The Blues are expected to have a busy transfer this summer, both in arrivals and departures.
However, a lot has not happened at the club since the end of last season, with the only deals at Stamford Bridge said to be the departure of Fikayo Tomori to AC Milan on permanent basis and the transfer of Olivier Giroud.
However, about three to five players are still expected to leave the club, with Spanish left-back Marcos Alonso, Emerson Palmieri, Spain goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, England striker Tammy Abraham and Hakim Ziyech expected to leave.
However, Tammy Abraham is reported nearing an exit this summer and the club have now revealed what he would be sold for.
The out of favour striker could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge this summer, with reports claiming that Premier League side Aston Villa are interested in signing the England international.
According to The Mirror, chelsea has stamped a £40m price tag on Abraham and Aston Villa are reportedly willing to match that price.
Last season, Abraham finished as Chelsea’s joint-top scorer in all competitions, but he largely struggled for game-time after Frank Lampard was replaced by Thomas Tuchel in January.
The England international made just four starts and seven appearances in total under Tuchel and he was left out of the squad entirely for both the FA Cup and Champions League finals.
It has been said that Abraham is not in Thomas Tuchel’s plan for next season, with a move away from Stamford Bridge the only way the star who excelled under the guidance of Frank Lampard would get the chance to play regular football.
