Tammy Abraham hints at potential return to Premier League

AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham has found himself at the centre of discussion as there has been growing speculation linking him with an exit this summer and a return to Premier League.

The English striker has well and truly bedded in at the Italian capital since his move from Chelsea in the summer of 2021, racking up 32 goals and 11 assists in 94 appearances for Giallorossi.

Abraham has courted interest from Aston Villa, Arsenal and Manchester United. There are also reports that the Blues want to exercise the buyback clause worth around €80 million included in his deal.

The Premier League trio have been handed a huge boost in their pursuit as the 25-year-old has hinted that he might return to England in the summer.

Speaking in an interview with FourFourTwo, when Abraham was quizzed about a possible return to the English top flight, he replied: “In football, you can never say never.”

Abraham insisted that his objective is to finish the season with Giallorossi on a high note but refused to rule out a return to the Premier League.

“Right now, my focus is here at Roma – we want to finish the season strongly,” the former Blues star continued.

“I haven’t started thinking about anything yet, apart from being here and doing my best.

“I wouldn’t say there’s unfinished business in England – I’m in no rush. Football has no location, it could be anywhere.

“Maybe I stay at Roma for the next decade, maybe I don’t. You never know what’s around the corner.”

The Gunners are looking to further reinforce their attack with a striker this summer and have shortlisted a handful of names.

Abraham himself recently revealed that he was approached by the north Londoners in 2021 when he was struggling for chances at Stamford Bridge.

The Three Lions international can take his game to next level under the tutelage of Mikel Arteta, and the chances of winning more titles are higher at the Emirates Stadium.

Florian Balogun, the Gunners loanee who has been a huge hit in Ligue 1 with Reims, has also been heavily linked with a return to the Emirates Stadium.

A return to Stamford Bridge looks complicated for Abraham due to FFP regulations. Having already splurged hundreds of millions on new signings under Toddy Boehly’s reign, the Blues are prioritising a clear-out this summer to avoid sanctions.

However, Man United have identified Abraham as one of their potential striker targets, alongside Victor Osimhen, Dusan Vlahovic and Goncalo Ramos.
