Rome based media outlet II Messaggero have suggested that Spurs are interested in AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham.

Abraham, 26, is coming off the back of an unfortunate ACL injury, sustained during Roma’s final game of the 22/23 season against Spezia.

As a result, the Englishman only played in 320 minutes of last season, scoring one goal away at Napoli (Transfermarkt).

This certainly adds risk to any possible signing, although you would think a full pre-season would do him the world of good as he looks to get back to his best.

Abraham served up a modest return of 8 goals in the 22/23 Serie A campaign, but did score 17 in his debut season the year before, as well as 9 goals in the Conference League as he fired AS Roma to the trophy in the competition’s inaugural season.

His best top-flight season to date, as far as minutes per goal are concerned, was the 19/20 Premier League season with Chelsea. The striker scored 15 goals, all from open play, in just 25 starts, scoring every 148 minutes (SofaScore).

The same publication are reporting that the Rome club are open to selling Abraham for €25m (around £21.1m), and that London rivals West Ham are also interested.

Abraham of course is a homegrown player, which is a useful tick in the box.

Despite the risks of the signing, that does seem a reasonable price for someone with 11 England caps and with multiple 15+ league goal seasons on his CV.

Although, Ange, rightly so, will be wanting the best option up front for his side, not the cheapest, or the best value for money. The best.


However, Daniel Levy, not so much. So let’s see.
