Swansea need to sign Chelsea’s England under-21 striker Tammy Abraham on credit for next season.
Abraham scored 26 objectives for Bristol City in the Championship last season and Swansea executive Huw Jenkins says the Welsh club are engaging Newcastle and Brighton for his mark.
Chelsea are sharp for Abraham to acquire understanding on credit, and the 19-year-old knows Paul Clement from the Swansea supervisor’s opportunity as a mentor at Stamford Bridge.
“Tammy does not have Premier League understanding, but rather we are intrigued,” Jenkins disclosed to BBC Wales. “Paul knows him from Chelsea. In the event that you take a gander at the alternatives which have been advanced, [they are] Brighton, Newcastle and ourselves. So it is left to Tammy and his family to choose where he needs to go next.”
Abraham is right now with the England U21 squad at the European Under-21 Championship in Poland.
He said a week ago that he would hold up until after the competition before choosing his best course of action.
“I’m not very beyond any doubt [about my future]. Ideally it will be in the Premier League,” Abraham said. “After this season I have to take myself to the following level. That is the sort of individual I am, I generally need to improve.”
Swansea would like to add Abraham to their flow assault of Fernando Llorente and Gylfi Sigurdsson, both of whom have been the subject of exchange hypothesis this late spring.

Llorente scored 15 class objectives last season, while Sigurdsson scored nine times and enrolled 13 helps.
“We will do our best to add to the group, not detract from it,” Jenkins included. “We’ve had no immediate contact from any club [over players], it is immaculate hypothesis and we trust it remains so.
“Keeping your top players is dependably a troublesome one. It is a moderate market as the players have been away on global obligation. We need to keep our best players and to that end Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente had great seasons with us a year ago.
“Normally that causes intrigue and there is a lot of media scope, however our point is to keep our best players and attempt to add to that.”
Be that as it may, one player who appears to be set to leave the Liberty Stadium is Bafetimbi Gomis. The 31-year-old has one year left on the arrangement he marked in 2014, however spent keep going season on credit at Marseille and is nearing a move to Galatasary in Turkey.
“Gomis [moving] to Galatasaray is conceivable, we have been talking,” Jenkins said. “Paul has a reasonable piece of cash to consider and there are maybe a couple players we are hoping to get marked. The fundamental positions we are searching for [with the way that we play] is a focal midfielder and a moment striker.
“Those are our principle concentrates, however there might be maybe a couple different zones if some periphery players leave the club, as some last year didn’t get enough diversion time.”
