Former defender Michael Ball believes that Tammy Abraham would give Dominic Calvert-Lewin competition at Everton.
Abraham has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, with Chelsea’s London rivals Arsenal reportedly interested in the striker, according to The Telegraph.
The 6 ft 4 England international found himself a key figure in Chelsea’s side when Frank Lampard was in charge, as he featured 47 times in the 2019/2020 season. Whilst under now Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, the striker only managed 17 minutes of Premier League football in the Blues’ final eight games of last term.
With plenty of speculation around his future, Ball believes Abraham would be a good addition at Goodison Park, telling TT: “We need to bring somebody alongside DCL as well.
“When it’s not working, we need a different sort of plan B, but to also give Dominic a rest. He’s played a lot of football in the last couple of years and if Tammy Abraham is available and he can come to the football club, he would be a great addition.”
Calvert-Lewin was in inspired form last season finding the back of the net on 21 occasions in all competitions. With his goals and performances, Calvert-Lewin was named Everton’s Men’s Player of the Season and also Everton’s Players’ Player of the Season.
New manager Rafa Benitez has already started bringing his own players to Goodison Park, with both Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray penning deals with the club and with this increasing competition for places in his starting eleven.
