Transfer Talk: Man United, PSG tracking Roma’s Tammy Abraham
The transfer window may be closed around Europe, but teams are looking ahead to the summer and there’s plenty of gossip swirling around. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings, goings and, of course, done deals!
TOP STORY: Man Utd, PSG monitoring Abraham
Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are both watching AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report says that the two European giants sent scouts to watch Roma’s 1-1 draw on Saturday against AC Milan, in which Abraham opened the scoring. It is reportedly not the first time United’s scouts have been to the Stadio Olimpico to watch the England international this season. Coach Erik ten Hag is looking for somebody to replace Wout Weghorst in the summer, with the Dutchman set to re-join Burnley upon the expiration of his loan deal at Old Trafford.
However, there could be competition from PSG, who are considering a move for Abraham ahead of Hugo Ekitike, who has been on loan at the Parc des Princes from Stade de Reims.
Chelsea also have the option to re-sign Abraham for €80 million, and Roma general manager Tiago Pinto is believed to be insisting that any club looking to sign him will need to meet that valuation. Even if a club does offer that, the Blues will be given first refusal to bring back the striker, who departed Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2021.
Tottenham Hotspur‘s scouts were also in attendance for Saturday’s match, although it isn’t certain whether that was regarding Abraham.
