Tottenham are active in the transfer window and most notably, Ange Postecoglou will want to sign a new striker. It is the one downside to Tottenham's overall impressive 2023/24 campaign, the lack of an out-and-out goal-scorer. While Son Heung-Min did an excellent job at carrying the attack, it has been proven in the past that he is better when partnered with a more central striker.

So, this is why it came as no surprise to see that yesterday, Hotspur HQ published a report stating that Tottenham had become interested in signing a former Chelsea striker. Well, today, the golden oportunity seems to be getting harder to believe. Tottenham simply HAVE to snatch him, before it's too late.

According to a report from Il Messaggero, Tottenham are on the trail to sign Tammy Abraham from AS Roma. The former Chelsea striker has recently returned from a long injury spell, which saw him ruled out of action for almost a year. Now he is back and Roma are listening to offers for him. What's even better is that the report states Roma only expect around £21m for his signature.

To sign a Premier League proven and homegrown talent for just £21m is an offer which Tottenham simply cannot refuse. As the old saying goes "some trains only pass once", and this is a train which Tottenham simply MUST jump on.

Tammy Abraham scored 15 goals and provided three assists in the 2019/20 Premier League season. More recently, he netted 17 goals and provided four assists for Roma in the 2022/22 Serie A season.

Ageing at 26 years old, Abraham is approaching the prime stages of his career. At least while Ange Postecoglou figures out his long-term plan, signing a player of Abraham's experience could serve as a great option in the striker role.

After all, Abraham will be keen to reclaim his place in the England team, so having the pedestal to do so at Tottenham would be a great opportunity. In many ways, it is a goal which would benefit all parties.

That said, Tottenham are bound to face competition. It is widely documented that Aston Villa and West Ham would also like to sign Abraham. Hopefully, Tottenham do not live with regret of losing their Champions League place to Aston Villa...
