Tottenham Hotspur are interested in bringing back AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham to London.
As revealed by Sports Witness, Tammy Abraham is contemplating his future at AS Roma and is being wanted by Tottenham Hotspur. The English international hasn’t been prolific this season netting just three times in 15 games in the Serie A.
The 25-year-old lit up the Serie A last season in his inaugural campaign as he returned with a tally of 17 goals and 4 assists but it hasn’t been the case this time.
His poor form also cost him a place in England’s World Cup squad as he missed out narrowly from Gareth Southgate’s 26-man desired list of players who will compete in Qatar starting tomorrow. The Chelsea academy graduate did show his capability to thrive in the Premier League in the 2019-20 season but the Blues surprisingly decided to cash in on him in the summer of 2021.
Amidst uncertainty looming over his future, the player is having doubts over his long-term feasibility on Italian soil. He has also been the subject of criticism from a part of the supporters and could pursue a move outside Italy if the situation permits.
Antonio Conte has been searching for a suitable backup for Harry Kane and Tammy could fill in the gap. The lanky centre forward has the skill to match up to the quality Conte demands and will thrive under him.
An old-school striker, Tammy also received some flak from Jose Mourinho and might fall in the pecking order if the situation remains the same. He still is highly regarded in the Premier League and a return to the Premier League might be in the offing in near future.
Given both Richarlison and Heung-min Son struggled for goals, Conte would look to add significant reinforcements in January and Tammy could be one of the options.
But his long-term contract could pose an issue as Roma would slap a massive fee on the player if they are to sell him in winter. A deal in the summer might suit Spurs as they could negotiate a much lower sum next year.
