Chelsea are reportedly considering taking up the recall option in Tammy Abraham's loan agreement with Championship side Aston Villa.
The England Under-21s international has 11 goals in 14 appearances since dropping down for a second stint in the second tier.
According to The Mirror, Chelsea can bring Abraham back to Stamford Bridge in January should they wish and integrate him into their first-team squad for the second half 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 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.
