Tottenham now reportedly want to sign £34m attacker who Harry Kane thinks is a ‘great player’

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for A.S. Roma striker Tammy Abraham over the weekend and Harry Kane thinks he’s a ‘great player’. 

Spurs will be looking to bolster Antonio Conte’s squad in January after a difficult spell of form before the World Cup. 

The Italian has been slightly short in terms of attacking options over the past few weeks, with Richarlison, Heung-Min Son and Dejan Kulusevski suffering injuries at various points. 

Kane has been forced to start in every single game for Spurs this season due to Conte lacking a real back-up option for the England captain. 

But they are seemingly looking to solve this issue, with Corriere dello Sport claiming that Tottenham want Roma’s Tammy Abraham.

The report notes that Abraham isn’t considering a January exit but he will be able to leave Jose Mournho’s side next summer.

The 25-year-old enjoyed a brilliant debut season in Italy last year, scoring 27 goals in all competitions. 

His form has dipped this season and he has only managed to get on the scoresheet four times in 20 appearances. 

But Kane is certainly a big fan of the former Chelsea man and was full of praise for the striker when he spoke to TalkSPORT back in June.

“I think that Tammy is a great player,” he said. 

“He’s had a fantastic season at club level, he’s still learning and has experience to gain but every time he comes here he works hard and trains hard.

“He wants to impress the manager, he wants to score goals and of course it’s great to have competition in every position and in the Premier League we have some great English strikers who are scoring goals on a regular basis.

“Tammy is doing that for Roma as well so he’s a great player and I’m sure he’ll want to keep improving, keep working hard and that’s what he’ll try and do in this camp and going back to club level as well.”

Abraham’s £34 million switch to Roma from Chelsea last summer has largely been a successful move, despite his struggles this season. 

Spurs are in need of a quality option to take some of the burden from Kane’s shoulders and Abraham could provide this. 

But as Conte’s men have found in the past, it’s a difficult gig to sell and it’s unclear whether Abraham would be willing to play a back-up role to Kane.
