Brighton Targeting Chelsea Star For First Season In The Premier League

Brighton and Hove Albion don't seem to be wasting any time in preparing for their first season in the Premier League.

Chris Hughton's men may still have a title race with Newcastle United to negotiate as they head into the final game of the Championship season, this weekend, but the Seagulls already appear to have their transfer targets for next season lined up.

And the name at the top of Hughton's shopping list should be pretty familiar to Brighton fans having spent this season scoring for fun in the Championship.

With 23 goals in 39 league games to his name this season, Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has caught the attention of scouts from across the country in helping Bristol City secure their Championship status during his season long loan at Ashton Gate.


Brighton wouldn't be able to sign Abraham permanently, with Chelsea currently unwilling to sell the 19-year-old, but the England U21 international would be available on another season long loan.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is reportedly happy to allow Abraham to gain Premier League experience away from Stamford Bridge next term, but Brighton aren't the only club interested in signing Abraham.


Everton and Leicester City are also rumoured to be interested in loaning the prodigious striker.

With Diego Costa seemingly destined for the Stamford Bridge exit door, this Summer, with several clubs in China ready to engage in a bidding war for the Spanish striker, there were some Blues fans who thought Abraham would be given a chance to impress in a Chelsea shirt during the 2017/18 campaign, but with a move for Everton's Romelu Lukaku imminent, Abraham will find first team opportunities difficult to come by once again, next term.


But should Antonio Conte give the youngster a chance in his first team or allow him to leave for another year to gain some valuable Premier League experience?
