Everton: Toffees targeting summer move for Tammy Abraham
Everton are reportedly targeting a summer move for AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham.
The Lowdown: Firepower needed
Everton are in desperate need of some more firepower up front if they want to avoid another relegation battle next season, assuming that they stay up.
They are currently the lowest scorers in the Premier League with 17 goals, while striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin keeps picking up injuries, and cannot be relied upon.
The Latest: Abraham interest
As per iNews, Everton, along with fellow top-flight rivals Aston Villa and Manchester United, are interested in signing Abraham this summer.
The Goodison Park outfit had an approach turned down in January, and Roma have slapped a £67m price tag on him.
They established contact over Abraham though, and Roma could be willing to listen to offers that match their valuation of the player.
The Verdict: Ambitious
A Toffees move for Abraham would be a very ambitious one at that price, and would smash the club transfer record.
Hailed as a ‘very talented‘ player by pundit and former Villa team-mate Alan Hutton, the Englishman has notched up an impressive 127 senior goals for club and country combined by the age of 25, and has plenty of experience in English football.
However, any deal for him will rely on the Blues avoiding relegation, and even then it may prove difficult to sign him with the likes of United and Villa lurking.
