Football pundit Dean Ashton has suggested that if striker Tammy Abraham is an ambitious player, he will leave Aston Villa this month.
The 21-year-old Abraham has been phenomenal for Villa so far this season as he has so far scored 16 goals from 20 Championship appearances which included a brace during their New Years Day 2-2 draw with Queens Park Rangers.
Abraham is already a proven player at Championship level-he previously scored 26 goals from 48 appearances in all competitions for Bristol City during the 2016-17 season.
However, the youngster is unproven at top-flight level. He did have a season long stint with Swansea in the Premier League last season but failed to make a big impact as he went on to score just eight goals from 39 appearances from all competitions.
Despite his failures from last season, the youngster definitely deserves another go at the top-flight. He has been strongly linked with a move to Premier League high-flyers Wolves this month if he manages to engineer a move back to Chelsea.
It appears that the Blues do not have any interest in integrating Abraham into their first-team just as yet. Villa must go whatever they can to keep Abraham at their club this month. If he moves, their hopes of securing promotion for next season will take a major dent.
Discussing the situation of Abraham, Ashton said as quoted by The Birmingham Mail:
“He might really enjoy being at Aston Villa like I did at Crewe.
“But if you want to be at the top level and you’ve got ambition, then I’m afraid he will want to do well at Aston Villa and then move to test himself in the Premier League again.
“He will feel like he didn’t do himself justice at Swansea (last season).”
