Report: Wolves will target Tammy Abraham transfer
Wolves are set to join Aston Villa and West Ham and target a move for Tammy Abraham in the summer transfer window, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
Chelsea are prepared to sell Abraham in this window. He fell out of favour following Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at Stamford Bridge.
The Daily Mail reports that the Blues want to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the club. And thus, they will let Abraham leave for around £40 million.
There are a number of Premier League sides interested in taking him.
The Daily Mail claims that Villa are set to reignite their interest. Meanwhile, West Ham and Wolves are also in the running.
The Mail notes that they each want to pay a lower fee for Abraham, so much may come down to which club can reach a compromise with Chelsea.
Molineux move for Wolves transfer target Abraham looks unlikely after previous reports
It was recently claimed by The Athletic that Wolves were likely to sell Ruben Neves this summer.
The report suggested that the £35 million fee was set to help funds moves for their own targets in this window.
Whether that is true or not, it does potentially highlight that Wolves are unlikely to be amongst the biggest spenders unless key players leave.
So spending around £40 million on Abraham seems hard to imagine at this stage.
Abraham has proved that he can score goals at the highest level. But Wolves will hopefully have Raul Jimenez back next season. And Fabio Silva has shown glimpses of amazing potential.
So if Wolves are going to part with a huge sum this summer, perhaps it may be fair to assume that it will be to strengthen another area of the squad.
