Wolves had a major transfer howler over Tammy Abraham

Wolves have not been shy when it comes to spending money on bringing new players to the Midlands club, particularly on their attacking players such as Raul Jimenez, Fabio Silva, Daniel Podence and Adama Traore among others.

However, as tends to happen with a lot of clubs, they don’t always end up signing every player they get linked with.

One player the Old Gold were linked with but didn’t manage to secure the signature of and will now be regretting is striker Tammy Abraham.

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

Back in the 2021 summer transfer window, Wolves were mentioned in a report from the Daily Mail as being interested in signing the Englishman from fellow Premier League side Chelsea before he eventually joined Italian club AS Roma in a deal worth a reported fee of £34m.

Before moving to Roma, the striker had racked up 75 goals in 170 games across the Premier League and Championship, highlighting his deadliness in front of goal and why Roma came in to sign the £40.5m-rated star.

Three of those goals came against the Old Gold during their 5-2 defeat against Chelsea in the Premier League back in September 2019 where he also managed to score an own-goal.

Labelled as “Drogba-esque” by Rio Ferdinand in terms of his attacking hold-up play as well as being a goalscoring “threat”, Abraham has since taken to Serie A like a duck to water having racked up 15 goals in 23 league appearances, in addition to the seven strikes he’s scored in eight Europa Conference League games.

To further highlight the Englishman’s prevalence in front of goal in Serie A this term, only Ciro Immobile and Domenico Berardi (83) have managed to have more shots at goal than the former Chelsea man (82), which is more than the likes of Paulo Dybala, Edin Dzeko, Lautaro Martinez and Dusan Vlahovic have managed to make in this campaign.

Taking all of this into account and the fact that scoring goals hasn’t been the easiest of tasks for Bruno Lage’s side this season compared to other teams in the top half of the Premier League table, it’s safe to say that Fosun had a howler by not being ruthless in the transfer market and signing Abraham when they had the chance.
