Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Tammy Abraham from Chelsea.
According to a report from TEAMtalk this weekend, the Magpies are monitoring the 23-year-old, who is really struggled for game time right now.
The England international has made just five appearances so far under Thomas Tuchel, and appears to be way down in the pecking order.
Newcastle’s interest comes at a time where supporters are now starting to think about the summer transfer window, and how the squad could be improved.
Newcastle signed Callum Wilson last year, but aside from him the forward options aren’t great.
Joelinton has improved of late but is still struggling in the Premier League, and Dwight Gayle’s top-flight record leaves a lot to be desired.
Andy Carroll is set to leave when his contract expires, so really Newcastle need to be putting the wheels in motion for a new number nine.
And Abraham could be a great addition.
The star would potentially be a very good partner for Wilson.
Abraham plays the target man role quite well, and Wilson is impressively mobile and could really benefit from potential flick-ons and hold-up play.
Price depending, Abraham should be strongly considered
A pursuit of Abraham should be launched if Chelsea are looking to cash in.
Although not prolific, he has proven himself capable of scoring goals in the top-flight.
He seems like a player who would really benefit from playing regularly in a partnership with someone.
If the price is right, the Magpies should definitely press ahead.
Attacking partnerships have been fruitful down the years at St. James’ Park, Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez, Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse, Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan, and Alan Shearer and anyone to name a few.
Potentially Abraham and Wilson could be extremely effective.
