Chelsea set to confirm striker transfer with FIFA approval pending

Chelsea are reportedly on the cusp of sanctioning the loan departure of Tammy Abraham to Wolverhampton Wanderers, London Evening Standard reports.

Wolves had proposed a permanent move for the England international earlier in the month but the Blues snubbed their advances after deeming the marksman as a prospect for the future.

However, the Capital club are still prepared to allow another temporary move for their striker once they trigger the break clause in his loan contract at Aston Villa.

According to reports, Wolves are confident of landing the Englishman thereafter with a FIFA approval being the sole formality restricting the move from going through.

The ‘two-club’ rule from FIFA has previously been highlighted as a potential deadlock towards Abraham’s switch to the Wolves but Evening Standard indicates that won’t be a concern.

FA are said to deem the Community Shield game in which Abraham featured as only ‘invitational’ and FIFA are likely to view in the same manner before permitting his temporary switch.
