Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig are reportedly looking into a possible move for Tammy Abraham this summer as they seek to overcome the potential departure of Timo Werner from the club’s ranks. Werner has been a crucial performer for Leipzig since their promotion to the top tier but they are considering his sale amid the recent contract standoff.
According to The Sun, the German outfit are likely to consider the sale of Werner in the summer, should he remain reluctant to extend his contract beyond the summer of 2020. It is added that the club are already looking into reinforcements with Chelsea’s Abraham identified as one of the possible targets for the forthcoming transfer window.
Abraham has excelled on his return to the Championship with Aston Villa this season and he has contributed 21 goals for them. However, the striker is set to return to Chelsea when the season-long loan concludes during the summer, and he could thereafter be offloaded with Maurizio Sarri unlikely to consider him for the future.
“In this case, reports indicate that the Blues graduate could have the chance of staying in the Premier League“ with Wolverhampton Wanderers, though the prospect of a foreign challenge could tempt him. Abraham has already witnessed fellow compatriot Jadon Sancho excel with Borussia Dortmund over the past 20 months and the opportunity to feature in an “overseas league could enhance“ his national team prospects.
Abraham has been influential towards Villa’s Championship run this term but it seems that the west Midlands outfit could miss out on the top six amid the inconsistency at the back. Dean Smith’s current hold the third-best attack in the division but they have not been helped by the fact they have conceded more goals than 17 teams. Villa are currently six points off the playoff positions.
