Report: Wolves eyeing Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly eyeing a potential swoop for Tammy Abraham.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, the club are set to join a few other teams in the hunt this summer.

It’s stated Aston Villa and West Ham United will both look to sign the 23-year-old.

Abraham has had a frustrating past few months.

Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge, he has barely played.

Surprisingly, he was overlooked completely for both the FA Cup and Champions League finals.

Chelsea are being linked with a move for Romelu Lukaku, which further suggests he is surplus to requirements.

It’s claimed the Blues value him at £40 million, which is a lot to pay for someone so far down the pecking order at his club.

Wolves are back down to two strikers now in Fabio Silva and Raul Jimenez, with Willian Jose having headed back to Real Sociedad – there’s no indication at this stage that his buy option will be triggered.

Abraham would be a fine addition

Abraham would be a great addition for Wolves.

He is by no means a top level Premier League striker just yet, but he has certainly proven himself capable of scoring goals in the top-flight.

He’s more of a target man than Jimenez, and he could bring different qualities to the table.

That £40 million valuation is definitely going to complicate matters though.

It is difficult to see Wolves paying that, so some serious negotiation may be required.
