Chelsea are considering to end Tammy Abraham loan at Aston Villa and bring him back to Stamford Bridge during this winter transfer window.
The England Under-21s international has 11 goals in 14 appearances since dropping down for a second stint in the second tier.
The Mirror reports that Chelsea can bring Abraham back to Stamford Bridge in January should they wish and integrate him into their first-team squad for the second part of the season.
However, a separate report carried by the Birmingham Mail suggests that Villa are confident the Blues will respect the season-long loan agreement.
Villa coach assistant John Terry maintains a strong working relationship with Chelsea, which the West Midlands outfit hope will help them in their quest to keep Abraham in place until next summer.
