Newcastle to make a 'renewed approach' for Tammy Abraham

It's not the first time Newcastle have been linked with the 21-year-old frontman who has scored 26 goals during a loan spell at Aston Villa this season.

Abraham is still contracted to Chelsea and is due to play in the Championship play-off final for Villa against Derby on Monday.

But if the Villans don't win promotion to the top-flight, the Northern Echo have claimed Newcastle will make a renewed approach for Abraham.

Even so, it remains a possibility that Chelsea could keep the striker following FIFA’s decision to issue the Blues with a transfer ban, meaning they can't sign players during the next two windows.

Yet various outlets have claimed the Reds have placed a £25million price tag on the player, who has reportedly interested Wolves, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Brighton
