Queen Park Rangers are about to be challenging Aston Villa over the signing of Chelsea star Tammy Abraham.
The Rangers manager was reported to have made attendance in a game between Chelsea U23 and Derby County U23 side and was impressed with the England born forward.
Aston Villa only just entered the race of signing the England international early this week as it was reported by ESPN and are interested in securing a loan deal from Premier League giants Chelsea.
The 20-year-old, who currently earns £50,000 a week as salary, was also reported to have been close to joining the Steve Bruce family.
Now jumping into the equation is Villa’s Championship rivals Queen Park Ranger who could be also be joining in on the race to sign Abraham.
Despite being included in Maurizio Sarri’s plans this season, Tammy Abraham has not featured in any of the two games for the Blues this season.
The 20-year-old forward, however, featured in the Chelsea U23 side against Derby County at Stamford Bridge on Friday night.
Speaking about the forward, Chelsea boss Sarri said: “I don’t know. It’s up to him if he wants to remain here.”
“We are very happy with him, so I think that, until January, he will stay with us. I think.”
Being twisted with his words, Aston Villa could still secure the signing of Abraham should they become desperate on the signing.
