Aston Villa and Everton are reportedly considered front-runners for Tammy Abraham if Roma decide to sell the English forward in the summer.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport via Sport Witness, Tammy Abraham is a target for Aston Villa and Everton in the summer. The Premier League duo are reportedly in front of the queue of clubs eager to sign him, as Roma could decide to sell him when the season ends.
Tammy Abraham is having a difficult season at Roma after a bright start to life in Rome last year. The 25-year-old only has 7 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions this season, which is dismal compared to his previous 27 strikes.
Roma are reportedly unhappy with his performances and could decide on cashing in in the summer if there’s serious interest from Premier League sides. The 25-year-old is one of the top English strikers and is naturally linked with moves to big clubs.
Roma would like to profit from the sale, as they paid around €40 million to purchase him 18 months ago. Former side Chelsea remained linked with bringing the striker back to Stamford Bridge. But that may only happen if they fail to pursue top targets Victor Osimhen or Dusan Vlahovic.
Meanwhile, Roma reportedly want at least €75 million for how things currently are. The report insists the Serie A giants might demand more if Abraham’s form improves between now and the end of the season. The price tag is similar to what Manchester United were quoted a few weeks ago.
For now, neither Chelsea nor Manchester United are the supposed frontrunners for the 25-year-old. Aston Villa and Everton are reportedly chasing the striker ahead of the summer window. If Roma decide to cash in, either side could look to prise Abraham away.
Aston Villa are reportedly interested in Abraham as Unai Emery eyes attacking reinforcements. Ollie Watkins remains their undisputed choice to lead the line. Yet the manager might look at the void left by Danny Ings since his departure to West Ham in January.
In any case, Villa could bankroll a good summer window and provide Emery with the tools he needs to strengthen the squad. However, they are not a club that would pay €75 million or more for a player visibly declining in form. Moreover, Abraham’s goalscoring numbers are also a cause for concern to any potential suitor.
Meanwhile, Everton might have an interest in signing Abraham like many other Premier League sides, but the finances are a big problem. The Toffees are not in a good financial position. Hence one could effectively rule out a move to Merseyside for the 25-year-old.
Moreover, Everton may not appeal to Abraham as much as a return to London or Aston Villa would. For now, the 25-year-old remains a Roma player, but a lot could change between now and the end of the season.
