Chelsea's wantaway striker Tammy Abraham has continued to be linked with a departure from Stamford Bridge and it's looking like it's now a matter of when, and not if he will leave the London club. The striker has seen playing time very hard to come by and from all indications, especially judging by his lack of game time, he may be forced to start looking for another club sooner rather than later.

Ever since the arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig last summer, the England international star has been reduced to holding a bit-part role at the club, and even though he is currently the second option in the striking department, he has still not been playing enough games.

It was reported last summer that he would be sent out on loan because he would not be promised regular playing time under Frank Lampard, but according to the report, he rejected the chance to move away from the club and was insistent on fighting for his position in the team. But things have not gone his way this term as he continues to spend more time on the bench than on the pitch

The Daily Mail is reporting that the 23-year-old forward could be set for an exit this season and he has been receiving offers from a host of Premier League clubs, most especially Aston Villa. Abraham was sent out on loan to Villa Park where he played for one full season in the Championship and was instrumental in their return to the English top-flight, and reports are currently suggesting that he could be returning to the club in the summer.

According to the Independent, Aston Villa manager Dean Smith would fancy a reunion with Abraham and could convince the Villa board to table an offer to Chelsea for the striker when the summer transfer window opens in a few weeks.
