Manchester United and Liverpool amongst six Premier League teams eyeing Tammy Abraham
Along with rivals Liverpool, Manchester United are amongst the six Premier League teams eyeing AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham, according to Spanish outlet Fichajes.net.
The England international is considering parting ways with the Italian outfit in the upcoming transfer window. To that end, a return to the English top flight could be on the cards.
Apart from the Red Devils and the Merseysiders, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Chelsea have the 25-year-old on their radar. The Serie A giants have set a price tag of around £40 million for him.
Abraham made his way through the youth ranks at the Stamford Bridge side. Subsequently, after an encouraging loan spell with Villa, the striker got an opportunity in the Blues’ first team.
However, under Thomas Tuchel, the English national became a bit-part player and decided to sign for Roma in the summer of 2021. After an impressive debut campaign in Italy, the 25-year-old has struggled at the Giallorossi.
Liverpool have an abundance of talent in the attack. They signed Darwin Nunez last summer and got Cody Gakpo in January. They also have Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz and Diogo Dalot in their ranks. However, Jurgen Klopp’s team are set to lose Roberto Firmino at the end of the season.
As for United, Anthony Martial and Wout Weghorst are the only two natural number nines at Erik ten Hag’s disposal. As a result, the gaffer has had to rely on Marcus Rashford to find the back of the net consistently.
The England international has been the only one the Dutch manager has been able to count on in the attack to score a considerable number of goals.
