Back in January, Tammy Abraham rejected a move to Wolves over fears he wouldn’t be able to play for the club.
There was confusion after the striker had already played for two teams, Chelsea and Aston Villa during the 2018/19 season.
But Wolves may now be about to renew their interest in the forward with pundit Noel Whelan telling Football Insider that the Midlands club will come in with a new bid.
Abraham has been in red hot form for the Villains this term, leading their play-off charge with 25 goals in the league and would undoubtedly add to the firepower at Nuno Santo’s disposal.
With a possible fresh bid in mind, Football FanCast’s writers came together to give their verdicts on whether Wolves should be looking to pursue the player again. Here’s what they had to say.
“They definitely should. Behind Raul Jimenez, Wolves don’t really have a forward who can come in and have a similar effect up front. Tammy Abraham has proved with Bristol City and now Villa that he is too good for the Championship, and the chance to play in a thriving Wolves team with quality players would be a great move for him. They should definitely revive their interest in him.”
“In my opinion, Wolves should be looking to revive their interest in Tammy Abraham. The striker has proved over time that he deserves a chance in the Premier League and that doesn’t look likely to happen at Chelsea or Villa. There’s a real dearth of out-and-out strikers at Molineux with just Raul Jimenez, who they’ve only just signed permanently. Think of the partnership those two tall forwards could form – one that would strike fear into any Premier League defence and maybe even end the club’s issues with finishing.”
“No, they shouldn’t. Abraham showed during his spell with Swansea City that he often struggles as a lone striker, and therefore he would probably be most effective at Wolves alongside Raul Jimenez. To do that would of course mean breaking up the fruitful relationship between the Mexican and Diogo Jota, which would upset Jota. Abraham is at a stage of his career where he won’t want to play second fiddle any longer, and given his likely big price tag Nuno Santo should steer well clear.”
“Wolves would be making a big mistake if they revived their interest in Abraham. The fact the forward has a desire for game time means he’d probably be quite unhappy at the club and it’s unlikely he’d outmuscle Raul Jimenez in the pecking order. The club needs to add depth to their attacking ranks but given how settled Nuno Santo’s team is, finding someone who’s happy to play second fiddle should be at the top of their priorities. However, if they did move for Abraham for a second time, it would be a big statement of their ambitions ahead of next season.”
