In an exclusive interview with Transfer Tavern, Steve Bull, who made 561 appearances for Wolves, has claimed that his former club were interested in Tammy Abraham but his price tag may have put them off.
Abraham has reportedly been made available this summer, however Chelsea are wanting to receive £40 million for the England international and Wolves are one of several teams credited with an interest in the striker.
Should Wolves sign Tammy Abraham?
Nuno Espirito Santo may want to have more than just Raul Jimenez as a reliable striker option going into next season after he has seen how poor Wolves have been without their talisman.
Speaking on how Wolves were interested in a move for Abraham and why they have been put off by his large price tag, Bull exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“I think there were talks early on this season about Wolves going in for him but I think the price tag put them off because it was about £40 million, but for me I think £40 million is absolutely nothing these days for a proven striker.
“I think he is someone that could settle in our side, but when Jimenez comes back he’s going to get straight back in the team so it’s up to the club whether or not they want to pay that much for a second striker.”
Abraham enjoyed a great season last year under Frank Lampard but since the former Chelsea midfielder was sacked and replaced by Thomas Tuchel, the striker has found game time difficult to come by.
Tuchel has favoured playing Kai Havertz or Timo Werner as their focal point over both Abraham and Olivier Giroud with the latter’s contract set to expire this summer.
