Young Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is wanted by Brighton & Hove Albion as they prepare for there first season in Premier League.

The 19-year-old has spent this season out on loan at Championship side Bristol City and has been a huge success at Championship level scoring 26 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions.

Seagulls boss Chris Hughton has the youngster on his radar  and wants to add fresh talent to his strike force. He got a closer look at the forward at the weekend as his team were denied being crowned champions with a 1-0 defeat to Bristol City.

There’s also been interest of a number of top flight clubs with Everton and Leicester both keen on trying to secure a permanent deal for him. Hughton will be hoping the Blues reject any big offers for the player this summer instead opting to send him out on loan again.

Since the turn of the year there’s been rumours Diego Costa will leave Chelsea which would leave the club short of in the striking department. Young Abraham deserves a chance after his performance this season and will get a chance to impress manager Antonio Conte during pre-season.
