Newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion are hoping their handling of Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori when he spent last season on-loan at the Amex Stadium would have pleased the Blues enough to deal with them on the transfer of Tammy Abraham this summer.
The Seagulls are targeting the attacker that set the Championship alight for struggling Bristol City last season.
Abraham has several suitors but the Blues have not made a decision on his future just yet. The Seagulls are hopeful they can convince Chelsea to allow him to join them for at least a season long loan.
Chelsea sees Abraham as a future first teamer, and they would be unwilling to sell him permanently leave this summer. But Everton is thought to be asking for his signature as a sweetener in the deal that would take Romelu Lukau back to his old stomping ground this summer.
Ronald Koeman sees Abraham and Manchester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho as the closest players to the Belgian if he leaves Goodison Park this season.
