    No he's not signing for us, the asking price is about £21 million too much

    But that's what Brentford have told Villa and Huddersfield to cough up if they're interested

    He was at Brentford last season and did nothing.

    However, as proven with Waghorn, all you need is one decent season and the asking price goes mental.

    Look at Tammy Abraham now - Chelsea apparently think his Championship exploits are worthy of a 50m price tag!

    That’s mental, but fair play to Brentford for asking for that. They always get good prices for their best assests. Why not?

    absolutely bonkers - interesting that Ken Anderson at Bolton said yesterday. his pockets aren't deep enough to run Bolton and is looking to sell.

    Worlds going bonkers - football has already gone bonkers.

    Top Brentford scorer last season - 12 (13 in all comps.) This season - 15 (16 in all comps.) 27 league goals in 66 league appearances for Brentford.

    Villa think they need more strikers?

    12 goals in a season for a top 7/8 championship side, is not a 20m quid striker.

    That's more to do with his age, nationality and performances for the England youth teams, rather than his championship exploits.

    Do they? Egan looks an absolute steal at £4m.

    Chelsea accepted a 16m bid from wolves for Abraham

    If that's the case, why hasn't he gone? Only reason Abraham hasn't gone to Wolves is because he didn't want another loan move.

    Certainly worth Brentford trying to maximise their proceeds if they have no need/wish to sell and anyone is desperate enough for a striker. However, H'field simply won't pay that and Villa no longer have the need for a new striker if Abraham does indeed stay so I can't see him going anywhere, which might just keep Brentford up this season

    Will be interesting how Villa disguise the potential 20m outlay in their accounts. They were on the edge of FFP previous to their takeover. The takeover doesn't change that.

    There's some doubt whether FIFA would clear Abraham to play if he went on loan. If Chelsea decide to sell him outright then he might still go to Wolves.

    All parties seeking clarity from UEFA on whether he can play for a 3rd club after some games for Chelski earlier. I am not sure what level the games were.
    UEFA wont rush a decision, player doesnt want to be in limbo until August.

    He was only 21, so 12 league goals wasn’t a bad season. Add to that the goals he’s scored this season and the current market, £20m sounds achievable to me.

    Well what's the benchmark for a scoring young striker from a championship club?

    I don't suppose there is one really.
