Man United continue to keep tabs on AS Roma striker, Tammy Abraham.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a thing of the past. Wout Weghorst is viewed as nothing but a stop-gap solution until the end of the season.
When the summer rolls around, Manchester United simply have no choice but to sign a high-level striker. It’s what Erik ten Hag needs to help take this side to the next level.
Several names have been linked. Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen among them. More will no doubt follow before the summer transfer window arrives.
Another name the club has been keeping an eye on is Tammy Abraham.
It’s iNews with the latest on Abraham’s future. They reiterate that United are monitoring the 25-year-old Englishman, who has been in good form since moving to Serie A side AS Roma.
Abraham isn’t United’s main target to fill the striker role, though he could be brought in if their other options aren’t viable when the transfer window opens.
What’s interesting is that Roma will ‘listen to offers’ for their player this summer, but only if the buying club is willing to pay a premium. That figure is set at around £67m – which is double what Roma paid to sign Abraham from Chelsea.
There’s no doubt that Abraham would add quality to this squad. The Englishman is someone who can be prolific in front of goal, while under Ten Hag, you’d expect him to improve as a footballer even more.
However, it does feel quite expensive for a man who isn’t a top target. I’d much prefer United to go all out and sign the guy that Ten Hag truly wants – much like the club did with Antony last summer.
