Swansea City have reportedly beaten off competition from Premier League new boys Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United to sign Chelsea striking sensation Tammy Abraham on loan for the 2017/2018 English Premier League season, AOIFootball.com can report.
The 19-year-old, who spent last season on-loan at Championship side, Bristol City, is currently out in Poland with the England U-21s at the European Championships and his club future, according to latest reports from Wales, looks to have been settled for next year.
Having smashed in 26 goals for The Robins, Abraham had hoped to figure in the plans of Blues’ boss Antonio Conte next term but with the imminent arrival of a new big-name striker, the youngster looks set to go out on-loan once again.
Swansea City boss, Paul Clement is renowned for giving young players the chance to shine and with current front man Fernando Llorente being linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, Abraham has been promised a starting-berth next season. It’s understood a deal could be finalised in the next 24 hours.
Abraham joined the Chelsea academy at U-18 level and progressed through the ranks, as Clement made his way from the youth team coach to the seniors and then assistant to Carlo Ancelotti, during their days at Chelsea.
