Stars Abroad

Bundesliga club, RB Leipzig are reportedly showing interest in signing Aston Villa striker Tammy Abraham in the summer.

The online version of the Sun UK has revealed that the Red Bulls will attempt to test Chelsea's resolve on the 21-year-old who is having a fine season on loan with Aston Villa.

Leipzig are willing to make an initial offer of up to £20 million (approximately N9.34B in Nigeria currency), a sum which could increase in the event of a bidding war as Premier League side Wolves are reportedly also ready to pay that amount to prize the player away from Stamford Bridge.

Abraham has scored 21 goals in 29 Championship games this season and is the highest goal-scoring player of Nigerian descent in England's top four divisions.

There is a little likelihood to the Blues hierarchy sanctioning that though as the club have been hit with a transfer ban for the next two windows, an indictment which means they will not be able to negotiate for incoming additions.

RB Leipzig are currently third on the Bundesliga log with 45 points tallied from 45 points from 24 games played.
