Aston Villa have been linked with a move for former loanee Tammy Abraham.
The Lowdown: 2018/19 loan at Villa
Abraham spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Villa Park under Dean Smith and helped the club to achieve promotion to the Premier League. The forward, who has previously been labelled a “goal machine” by former Sunderland striker Stephen Elliott, netted 26 goals in the Midlands during that promotion campaign.
He has been with AS Roma for the last 18 months, where he has continued to score at a regular occurrence, with his tally for the Serie A club currently at 31.
The Latest: Villa linked with Abraham
Calciomercato shared a story on Tuesday evening regarding Abraham, with Roma no longer considering the forward non-transferable.
The report name-checked Villa, saying that they ‘can afford an important engagement’ for the 25-year-old.
The Verdict: Shrewd move?
Abraham has scored goals wherever he has been during his career, with his senior tally for club and country currently at 124.
Still just 25 years of age, the England international could be just what Unai Emery is seeking as he searches for a new A-list forward, and you’d like to think that NSWE could afford a deal after promising the manager a ‘huge’ budget.
The former Villa loanee could prove to be a smart prospective signing to provide another option alongside Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins, so a possible 2023 move could be one to monitor.
