Aston Villa make contact with Roma over Tammy Abraham return

Aston Villa are reportedly one of the clubs who have made contact with intermediaries regarding the availability of Roma striker Tammy Abraham, with a potential return to the Premier League on the cards.

What’s the story?

That’s according to 90min, who claimed that Villa – alongside Arsenal and Newcastle United – have made contact in an effort to bring the 24-year-old back to the club where he scored 26 goals on loan in the 2018/19 campaign.

The Englishman has been exceptional in Italy this season having left Chelsea last summer, with the striker scoring 27 goals in 53 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side.

Abraham has been a major contributor to the Giallorossi’s sixth-place finish in Serie A as well as their triumph in the Europa Conference League, winning the inaugural edition of the tournament.

Which club did Villa sign Leon Bailey from in the 2021 summer transfer window?

Villa must secure Abraham deal

Already a fan favourite at Villa Park for his contribution to getting the club promoted, the 24-year-old would be a sensational addition to Steven Gerrard’s squad.

The West Midlands outfit have already shown serious ambition by confirming the signings of Boubacar Kamara and Diego Carlos before the end of May, and a deal for their former loanee would most likely trump any other transfer that NSWE complete this summer.

Naturally, though, there are plenty of obstacles in the way of making this deal a reality.

Firstly, Abraham’s current deal at Roma doesn’t expire until 2026, having only played one season so far in the Eternal City, and it is believed that the Giallorossi value the Englishman at £100m.

Labelled “unreal” by Chelsea journalist Nizaar Kinsella whilst being claimed to have enjoyed a “perfect start” at Roma by Sky Sports’ Angelo Mangiante, the 24-year-old has finally settled at a club, having endured a mixed spell in the Chelsea first team.

Earlier this season, the player himself claimed: “I got to the point that I needed to leave and explore. All I knew was Chelsea. It’s nice to explore, learn a different culture, and a different language. It’s different, but I am enjoying it.”

Should Aston Villa pay £100m for Tammy Abraham?

Yes

No

Abraham was limited to just 12 Premier League starts for the Blues last term, with Thomas Tuchel handing the forward little game-time after taking over from Frank Lampard.

Although the 24-year-old would likely be guaranteed regular playing time at Villa Park, Abraham has settled in Rome, and it may prove a tall task to lure him back to England after just one season at the Stadio Olimpico.
