According to 90Min, Everton are interested in snapping up Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham this summer, fighting with a number of Premier League clubs.
It’s claimed that David Moyes would like to bring Abraham to West Ham, but the Hammers, Southampton and Crystal Palace have all been put off by the asking price.
Aston Villa, Brighton and Everton are still in the race though, and Rafael Benitez’s interest in signing Abraham isn’t a huge surprise.
Rafael Benitez is Everton’s new boss, and he was desperate to take Abraham on loan at St James’ Park back in the summer of 2017.
Abraham joined Swansea City instead, and Benitez confirmed that he wanted the striker, believing that he is a player with ‘potential’.
Four years on, Benitez is back in the market for Abraham, though the move would be a little surprising given that Dominic Calvert-Lewin is at the club.
Both are tall centre forwards who play best as centre forwards occupying centre backs, meaning it’s a little hard to see them working in tandem.
Abraham wouldn’t take playing second fiddle after being left on the sidelines at Chelsea, and Everton will need to think about how much football they can give him before making a move.
Branded ‘unbelievable’ by Jack Grealish, Abraham needs a new start – and Benitez could finally get his man.
