ASTON VILLA are interested in signing Tammy Abraham, according to reports.
The striker spent a season on loan at Villa Park in 2018-19, helping the club to promotion from the Championship with 26 goals in 40 games.
Aston Villa want to sign Abraham
He broke into the Chelsea team after that before a £34million switch to Roma, where he scored 27 goals in all competitions last season.
Abraham, 25, has just seven goals this term but that has not deterred Villa’s interest, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The report claims manager Unai Emery has identified Abraham as the man to improve his attack.
It is claimed Abraham would be open to returning to England, particularly as it could bolster his chances of being called up by Gareth Southgate.
He has not asked to be sold but Roma are reportedly open to offers.
It is believed the Italian outfit need to bring in between £44-48m to budget for losses this year.
That could see Abraham leave with the striker worth a reported £35m.
Roma are considering options to replace the 11-cap star too, with Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino top of their wishlist.

The Brazilian has told the Reds he wants to leave at the end of the season when his contract expires.
He has spent eight years at Anfield, winning the Premier League and Champions League, but has decided it is time to seek a new challenge.
Firmino is open to offers and Roma could reportedly make a swoop if they offload Abraham.
