Crystal Palace must revive their interest in Tammy Abraham

Crystal Palace must revive their interest in Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham this summer, with the Blues reportedly willing to consider any offers for the 23-year-old.

What’s the story?

The Eagles were first linked with a move for the England international back in 2018 and have been keeping an eye on the 6 ft 2 forward ever since.

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are set to demand £40 million for Abraham over the coming months after he was deemed surplus to requirement by Thomas Tuchel.

However, the report also states that fellow Premier League sides Arsenal and West Ham United are interested in acquiring his signature, meaning chairman Steve Parish may have to move quickly to secure his services.

Should Palace sign Abraham?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

No way!

Crystal Palace need him

Abraham first rose to prominence during an extremely productive loan spell with Aston Villa in the Championship during 2018/19 when he bagged 25 goals in 37 league appearances for the Midlands outfit.

And he evidently still has some admirers from his time at Villa Park, with club captain Jack Grealish revealing his admiration for his former teammate last year.

In a Q&A session on his Instagram, Grealish admitted he could not believe the levels Abraham showcased during his time with the Villans, writing: “Unbelievable. Couldn’t believe how good he was with the ball for how tall he is. Loved playing with him.”

However, despite impressing under former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, the highly-rated attacker has struggled for game time under Tuchel.

Abraham made just two Premier League starts under the enigmatic German manager last term and was substituted at half-time on both occasions. He subsequently failed to make the matchday squad for either the FA Cup final or the Champions League final, indicating his time in west London is coming to an end.

But Palace could offer the youngster a way out of his Stamford Bridge nightmare.

The Eagles are currently undergoing a major overhaul of the first-team squad under Patrick Vieira, with Joachim Andersen expected to join new arrivals Marc Guehi and Michael Olise in south London.

Despite their strong early showing in the current window, Palace are still in need of extra attacking reinforcements following the departures of Michy Batshuayi and Andros Townsend.

Adding Abraham to Vieira’s ranks would significantly boost the French tactician’s options, meaning Parish must revive his interest in the colossus before a domestic rival makes their move.
