Aston Villa reportedly have their eyes on securing a 2023 transfer for AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham.
The Lowdown: Villa’s previous spending
In terms of their attacking recruits, the Villans have splashed out to sign the likes of Danny Ings, Ollie Watkins, Emi Buendia and Philippe Coutinho.
It now appears that Villa have their eye on signing another attacking talent who already knows what it takes to play in England.
The Latest: Villa eyeing Abraham
According to a recent report from Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Villa are keeping an eye on Abraham’s position at Roma, with his future in doubt and a potential move back to England apparently very much on his mind.
The report also claims that a potential move away from the Stadio Olimpico for the striker will not happen during the upcoming January transfer window, although he is reportedly ‘waiting to see what will happen in June’.
The Verdict: Villa should move for Abraham
This shows how capable a goalscorer the centre-forward – who has been hailed for his “magnificent” ability in this regard by Henry Winter – is and how he’d be a big asset for Unai Emery’s side.
With Ings and Watkins only scoring seven goals between them in 14 league appearances each so far this term, perhaps adding a player like Abraham could be just what Villa need in order to be more consistent and clinical in front of goal.
Moving forward, if the opportunity to sign the 25-year-old comes up during next summer’s transfer window, the Midlands club should do all that they can to bring the striker back to Villa Park.
