Brighton have reportedly entered the race to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham on loan for the season.

Abraham was a target for the Seagulls last summer, before he signed for Swansea on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old scored five goals in 31 Premier League appearances as the Swans were relegated from the Premier League.

The Daily Mail and Birmingham Mail are reporting Albion and Aston Villa are looking to secure Abraham's services for the season.

Abraham played for Chelsea in the Community Shield against Manchester City on Sunday but is not expected to be part of new manager Maurizio Sarri's plans.

Albion already have Glenn Murray, Florin Andone, Jurgen Locadia and Tomer Hemed as their forward options.
