Report: AC Milan to propose Tammy Abraham deal to Chelsea
AC Milan could seriously consider a move for Chelsea star Tammy Abraham during the summer transfer window, despite his £40 million valuation, according to Pianeta Milan.
Thomas Tuchel will want to stamp his own authority on the squad when the window reopens. As a result, Abraham could be on borrowed time as the Frenchman looks to shake up his attack.
AC Milan have enjoyed some success with the signing of Fikayo Tomori. The centre-back checked in during the January transfer window and has played 18 times for the Serie A outfit.
Tomori joined on loan with the club holding an option to buy the defender and they could seek a similar deal as they ponder a move for the England centre-forward.
Abraham has missed some games of late with an ankle problem but since his return to action, he’s failed to really earn a proper chance under Tuchel’s management.
Furthermore at 23 and having enjoyed a taste of regular first-team action under Frank Lampard, he will now back himself to be playing regular football at the highest level.
In 82 games for the Stamford Bridge-based club, he has found the net on 30 occasions and helped himself to 12 assists.
TBR View: Chelsea wise to cash in on Abraham during the transfer window
As with any club that appoints a new manager there will always be a desire to add their own players to the squad already assembled at the club.
Tuchel will be no different and it’s no surprise that he will hold a desire to freshen his attack up before next season.
Abraham has been decent when called upon by Chelsea but it’s fair to say they might look for a better option during the summer.
If AC Milan are willing to do a loan to buy option for the youngster then the Blues might be wise to consider offloading the £57,000-a-week striker.
