Aston Villa and Everton are “leading the race” to recruit England striker Tammy Abraham from AS Roma this summer

According to iNews, Aston Villa and Everton are “leading the race” to recruit England striker Tammy Abraham from AS Roma this summer, with Roma demanding a cost of £67 million for the player. Manchester United is also reportedly looking at signing Abraham.

A deal for Abraham was being considered, but now Erik ten Hag has chosen to focus on signing Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen instead. Even though many experts have recommended they sign Harry Kane from Tottenham, they have decided not to.

Abraham is being examined by both Aston Villa and Everton, while Manchester United are interested in Osimhen, who has been impressive for Serie A leaders Napoli. According to the article, the two Premier League clubs are in the lead to sign Abraham for £67 million.

Of course, Abraham moved to Roma that summer of 2021. When playing for Jose Mourinho’s Conference League champions in his first season, Abraham scored 27 goals and sent out five assists in 53 games. 

Abraham has played and started in 25 of 33 games but has only contributed seven goals and five assists. Nonetheless, both Villa and Everton are serious. But, Chelsea has a repurchase provision in his contract with Roma set at £67 million.

Abraham was on loan at Villa for a year, during which he scored 26 goals in 40 games, a major factor in the club’s promotion from the Championship to the Premier League. Although Villa tried to sign him long-term, he ended up being Chelsea’s first option when they were unable to do so.

Meanwhile, Everton is trying to replace Dom Calvert-Lewin with a new striker, and their interest in Abraham implies they may be considering him. For the last year, the latter has suffered repeated injuries. Abraham would prefer the villa. Villa, who has played there before, is safely in the middle of the standings and not in danger of relegation. With yet another loss, this time a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Arsenal, Everton finds themselves in the relegation zone. Thus, Abraham may be making plans to move back to Villa.
