Transfer Talk: Roma place £100m price tag on in-form Abraham
Roma have slapped a £100million price tag on Tammy Abraham ahead of the summer transfer window.
The England striker has impressed since signing for £34m from Chelsea ahead of the current season.
His two strikes in Roma’s 3-0 win over arch-rivals Lazio on Sunday took his goal tally to 23 in all competitions.
And despite signing a contract until 2026 when he moved to the Stadio Olimpico, the Serie A side are braced for interest.
According to the Mail, major clubs in the Premier League and across Europe are weighing up a move for the 24-year-old.
Chelsea are able to re-sign the striker for £67m in 2023 when a clause they included in the deal comes into effect.
But Manchester City and Manchester United are both in the market for a centre forward at the end of the current season, while Tottenham may be as well should Harry Kane leave.
Though Jose Mourinho will be desperate not to lose Abraham, Roma’s financial position means if the right bid comes in, he will have little say in the matter.
