Tammy Abraham, an English striker who is 25 years old and currently plays for AS Roma, is supposedly a player that Chelsea is considering acquiring this summer.
After making the move from Chelsea to AS Roma, Tammy Abraham has left quite an impression on everyone. In addition, a report that was published by Football Insider suggests that the Blues are considering re-signing the 25-year-old player at the conclusion of the current campaign.
The Italian club has certainly strengthened its roster with the addition of Tammy Abraham. In the previous campaign, he was successful in scoring 27 goals across all competitions. In the 2022–2023 season, he was a major contributor to their success in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
This year, the English international has contributed to ten points on the scoresheet, including seven goals and five assists across all competitions. Despite the fact that his performance has been declining, he continues to be an essential member of Jose Mourinho’s team. Abraham’s name has also been mentioned in connection with Arsenal.
It is unknown at this time whether Chelsea are willing to pay an exorbitant amount of money for him. Because of a condition in the player’s contract that was introduced during the course of his sale, the Blues have the ability to exercise their option to sign the player at the conclusion of this season for a fee that is about 70.5 million pounds.
It is not a mystery that Chelsea will need to strengthen their offense by signing new players at the end of the current campaign. They would benefit greatly from having a consistent goal scorer. Even though the Blues have strengthened their squad with a number of talented new players in recent transfer windows, they still do not have a reliable goalscorer who is capable of finding the back of the net on a regular basis.
Abraham has without a doubt demonstrated that he is capable of scoring goals in Italy. In addition, he has already demonstrated his talent in England when playing for Chelsea and Aston Villa. It is not yet clear whether Abraham has any interest in staying with Chelsea beyond this current campaign and returning to Stamford Bridge. It is likely that he will have the perception that he has unfinished business at the Premier League club, and he will be driven to demonstrate his quality in England.
A return to Chelsea might improve not only his prospects of playing for England regularly but also his chances of playing for Chelsea again. But, the 70.5 million pound clause is a high price to pay, and Chelsea will likely believe that they can recruit someone with a greater ceiling for the same amount of money if they go elsewhere.
It is going to be fascinating to watch how the circumstance evolves over the next few months from here on out. If the provision is activated by the Blues, Roma will be unable to prevent the player from departing because they do not have the authority to do so. As this is going on, Chelsea is keeping an eye on a number of other strikers, one of them is Marcus Thuram.
