Tammy Abraham is on the verge of becoming Rafa Benitez's first signing of the summer at Newcastle with Chelsea ready to agree to a season-long loan. The deal is excepted to be tied up this weekend.

The Magpies look to have beaten several clubs to secure the services of the highly-rated 19-year-old with Brighton and Hove Albion and Leicester City both said to be interested.

Leicester and Brighton were also keen on Abraham, but Newcastle have won the race, according to the Daily Mail.

Chelsea do see the England Under-21 global as a future star, but can't give him enough game time at Stamford Bridge next season.

He scored 26 goals across all competitions during his 48 appearances, showing a real striker's instinct in the 18-yard box all season.

Newcastle boast Dwight Gayle as their man striker, while they can also rely on the talents of Aleksandar Mitrovic.

While Abraham was unable to find the net against the Magpies last term, the England U21 global hit 26 goals in all competitions - informing clubs of the talent that the 19-year-old possesses.

The Blues failed to agree a new contract with Dominic Solanke who is expected to join Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
