Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is a target for Everton, according to a report published by The Sun. The youngster, who has spent the season out on loan with Aston Villa in the Championship, has shone as he has so far scored 25 goals from 37 appearances.
The Toffees will need a new striker this summer. Cenk Tosun could be moved on this summer after failing to live up to expectations. Due to a lack of faith in the Turkey international, Toffees manager Marco Silva has often resorted to deploying wide-man Richarlison as a false-nine. The club will probably aim to bring in a specialist striker this summer.
The 21-year-old Abraham is regarded as one of the best young English talents and has drawn comparisons to Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney. The Blues must not sell him. If they do, they could end up regretting such a decision in the future.
One would hope that the Blues would learn from their mistakes after having allowed Kevin de Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Romelu Lukaku to leave prematurely. The trio have since established themselves as world-class talents in their respective positions elsewhere.
With Chelsea facing a two-window transfer ban, they may have to rely on re-integrating players out on loan into their first-team squad this summer. It may make perfect sense to re-integrate Abraham into the squad next season. He has shown remarkable potential and while he still does have flaws in his game, he could develop into a world-class talent under the right guidance.
There will likely be a number of clubs looking to test Chelsea’s resolve and submitting offers for Abraham this summer. The Blues must, however, go all out and reject these offers. They must give the player good opportunities to crack the first-team before even considering letting him go permanently.
