Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham could be set to snub various Premier League offers in favour of a loan move to Dutch Eredivise side Vitesse Arnhem.
The young Englishman, who enjoyed a very successful spell on loan at Bristol City in the Championship last season, has been linked with Newcastle United and Brighton amongst others, but could be about to embark on quite a different adventure.
Vitesse might feel they stand a good chance of signing the 19-year-old, because they have taken Chelsea prospects on a temporary basis in the past such as Lewis Baker and Matt Miazga.
General director Joost de Wit has disclosed to respected Dutch news outlet De Telegraaf that his club have indeed been in contact with the Blues over a potential loan deal.
He said, via the Bristol Post: “With Chelsea we are working together with great pleasure, we have announced our wishes and are fully conversant.
“It is clear that we want to have a strong, broad selection next season. Also with a view to European matches.”
Should the move fail to materialise, that might sit well with Bristol City, who would ideally love to welcome the striker back next season – he plundered 26 goals in the Championship last season, which is a fantastic return given his tender age.
