A number of England outcasts will be cheering Gareth Southgate’s side on from home this summer, as the Three Lions aim to win the European Championship for the first time. 

James Ward-Prowse and Jesse Lingard were both seen to be unfortunate not to be included in Southgate’s squad, with Ben White drafted into the 26-man group to replace the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold, much to the confusion of many England fans who questioned the need for so many defenders.

Another name who missed out on the squad was Tammy Abraham, with the 23-year-old left out after being ousted from the Chelsea starting XI for the majority of Thomas Tuchel’s reign.

A year ago, the Englishman looked likely to be involved at Euro 2020, having scored 15 league goals for the Blues during the 2020/21 season.

Now, it appears that the striker’s time in West London is coming to an end, and a new Premier League club have emerged as potential suitors.

According to Eurosport, Aston Villa are keen admirers of Abraham and could be tempted to make a move for the forward.

Abraham was involved in just six of the 19 league games that Tuchel took charge of after taking over in January.

Villa have already signed Emiliano Buendia from Norwich and are reportedly keen on adding Abraham to the Argentine, Ollie Watkins and Jack Grealish to create a star-studded attack ahead of next season.

The report also suggests that West Ham, who had previously been touted as the player’s most likely next destination, have been priced out of a move.

The Hammers budget is believed to be around £30 million, while the Blues are holding out for £40 million.

The Chelsea academy graduate spent time on loan at Villa Park, scoring 25 times in 37 games during the 2018/19 season.

Abraham, who collected a Champions League winner’s medal in May, has been prolific throughout his entire senior career, scoring 90 goals in just over 200 appearances for Swansea, Villa, Bristol City and Chelsea.
