Former Leeds United star Jon Newsome has suggested to Football FanCast that the club should consider a swoop for Tammy Abraham this summer.
Reports have suggested that Chelsea are willing to part with the striker in the next transfer window and The Daily Telegraph have reported that he will cost £40m to extricate from Stamford Bridge.
Abraham has struggled for minutes this season and was not even included in the squad for the FA Cup final against Leicester City.
That could well open the door to a summer exit and Newsome thinks that Leeds ought to consider making a move for the 6 ft 3 England international.
He has scored a total of 30 goals in 82 games for Chelsea and Newsome says he has been watching the 23-year-old since he played for Bristol City on loan as a teenager.
During his time in Bristol, Abraham netted 26 goals in 48 games and Newsome thinks he would be a superb acquisition for Leeds.
Speaking exclusively to FFC, he said: “I see they’ve put a price tag of £40 million on Tammy Abraham. Do you push the boat out and go and buy Tammy Abraham?
“I’ve watched him since he was out on loan at Bristol City as an 18-year-old and I think he’s a fantastic player.
“He leads the line, he just needs that club where he’s the number one target and the number one man and I think he’ll just blossom again. So do the club do something like that?”
