Former Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, wants to return to the Premier League as soon as possible.
What’s the word?
That is according to a report from Corriere dello Sport, who analysed Abraham’s progress, options, psychology and stimulus in their latest report on the England international.
The detailed piece evaluates the 24-year-old’s desire to “attract attention from his country and return to the Premier League as soon as possible.”
And, as per the same piece from the Italian outlet, this desire is unveiled and is not harmful to Roma in any way.
If Abraham returns to form this season, it is expected that Chelsea will take advantage of the €80million (£71.4m) release clause that is valid from 2023.
This would certainly not be the first time that Chelsea have toyed with the idea of bringing back one of their former assets.
Romelu Lukaku was indeed the last example of this, so it would not come as a surprise to see Chelsea move for their former frontman.
It will definitely depend on Abraham’s form, though.
This season, he has not been able to hit the same heights, with just two goals and a solitary assist to his name in seven appearances.
The 24-year-old will need to rediscover his form of last season if he is to tempt Todd Boehly into biting at his release clause next summer.
It is a move that certainly makes sense though, with the Blues’ former “goal machine”Abraham, as dubbed by the admins at Goal, a viable option to lead the Blues line long-term.
And whilst it’s a move that will please Graham Potter, it’s one that will surely frustrate Chelsea fans, after seeing their side let go of the highly-rated talent for a snip of the now-mooted release fee.
But, that was under the old regime, with Boehly surely more astute in that regard.
Would you want to see Abraham return to the club in a surprise transfer U-turn?
