Newcastle United are tracking two Chelsea wonder-kids

Newcastle United interested in signing Chelsea players Tammy Abraham and Billy Gilmour on loan

Chelsea youngsters Tammy Abraham and Billy Gilmour are monitored by Newcastle United. The Tyneside club’s coach Steve Bruce needs both the players on loan.

Thomas Tuchel had a brilliant season with the Blues after taking charge from former coach, Frank Lampard. However, Abraham was the one who got comparatively lesser playing time under Tuchel. Gilmour too, is facing a tough competition as a midfielder to start for the starting eleven.

However, he is highly unlikely to got out as the manager considers him to be a part of his plans. Tammy has two years more left at his contract and the Champions League winners are asking for at least £40 million whereas Gilmour has also two years left at his contract.

Both the players are developing well at Chelsea but still may be out of the club due to uncertainty in playing time

Signing them both would be a boon for Newcastle but a bane for Chelsea

Tammy Abraham made his senior debut aged 18 in 2016 in a 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the Premier League. The 23-year-old forward was brilliant for the recent two seasons under Lampard but was unable to produce the magic under Tuchel.

Although the England international made into the senior squad in 2016, he had three different loan stints at Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa in the following years. However, it may be the time that he might be leaving the Pensioners after scoring 30 goals in 82 appearances so far.

Whereas Billy Gilmour, aged just 19 years, made his debut at the senior team last season for Chelsea after signing from Scottish heavyweights Rangers. His development has been brilliant but the lack of playing time is surely concerning.

According to Daily Mail, Newcastle United are keen on signing both the players on loan. But, the chances of signing the Scottish youngster is very slim. The Magpies finished 12th in the Premier League last season and are looking forward in strengthening their attack.

Rivals West Ham United are also interested in a permanent deal for Abraham. Thus, it would be a difficult competition in acquiring his services.
