Mark Douglas has dropped some promising insight from close sources of Tammy Abraham on a potential transfer to Newcastle United.
Writing in his latest piece for The Chronicle, the journalist has revealed that sources close to the Chelsea striker mentioned the Magpies as well as West Ham United as ‘potential escape routes’ for him.
Should Newcastle sign Abraham?
This comes after a report emerged that the Tyneside club, in addition to both the Hammers and Aston Villa, are interested in signing Abraham in the summer transfer window, with the Blues prepared to sell for a fee in the region of £40m.
Newcastle must sign Abraham
Even though Newcastle already have Callum Wilson on their books, the backup options in case he gets injured are rather tame, and so what better alternative option to have up top than Abraham.
Described as a ‘phenomenal’ player by former Premier League manager Alex McLeish back in March, the England international is certainly not shy in front of goal. Abraham has managed a total of 18 goal contributions in 32 matches across all competitions so far this season (Transfermarkt), and at just 23 years of age, he is likely to get even better over the next few years.
£40m may well be a big gamble for Steve Bruce’s side, exemplified by the amount that they splashed out on the underwhelming Joelinton, but Abraham has a point to prove and could thrive at the Magpies.
