Bundesliga club preparing £20m official bid for 21-year-old Chelsea forward

RB Leipzig are weighing up a £20m end-of-season offer for Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham, according to a report.

The Bundesliga side may be about to lose Timo Werner to a rival club as the striker will not commit to a new deal, leading to the likes of Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain sniffing around.

Abraham has been identified as a possible replacement up top, with The Sun suggesting that Leipzig want the 21-year-old to become the latest English talent to star in the German top flight.

Wolverhampton Wanderers tried to sign the Chelsea academy product for £20m in January, but he turned down the move as he wanted to see out the rest of the season on loan with Aston Villa, where he has scored 21 goals in 29 Championship outings.

The lure of playing regular top-tier football abroad may appeal to Abraham, it is claimed, with his chances likely to be limited at Stamford Bridge.

Tammy Abraham is not the only young Chelsea forward who has been linked with a departure from the London giants at the end of the season. The Blues another youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has been closely monitored by Bayern Munich and Bundesliga champions are expected to make official move for the talented forward in the summer transfer window.
