Aston Villa fans surely won’t be surprised at latest striker reports

Aston Villa fans could be forgiven for wanting to take a seriously long break this summer, after a horrible season that has seen them experience many ups and downs.

They’ve been from agony to ecstasy more times in the last nine months than some fans do in ten years.

Financial troubles, big takeovers, managers coming in and out and finally a possible play-off assault from the ashes of a broken season.

One man who has been tremendous for them this season is Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

He’s on loan at Villa Park and has been scoring goals with regularity, giving them the faint hope of a top six finish.

With John McGinn back this weekend and Jack Grealish also fit and raring to go, the immediate future is bright.

Beyond that, they might have cause to worry. Whilst McGinn looks likely to stay put and Grealish is always the subject of speculation, it is the future of the Chelsea striker that will be causing concern.

From the fans point of view, the recent links with RB Leipzig are unlikely to be surprising.

The 21-year-old has grabbed 21 goals for the Villans this campaign and that sort of return surely demonstrates his value to other clubs.

Only the very naivest of fans could possible envisage anything other than him leaving the club in the summer.

The recent speculation might bring that reality home a little earlier than needed, but there’s surely no hope of a player valued at £20m in latest reports spending another season at Villa.

From their perspective, the focus has to be on replacing those goals, whether it is the misfiring Jonathan Kodjia stepping up, or indeed a new face.

Even if they seal Jack Grealish and get a huge amount of money to lavish on the forward line, they won’t tempt Abraham back to Villa Park. The only instance in which it might happen is if Chelsea want to keep him but don’t want him loaned to a Premier League rival, or a club on the continent.

That’s a very slim chance indeed.
