Chelsea’s Premier League season has started on a sour note. With only three wins in their first ten matches, they currently stand at 11th place on the table. Since Mauricio Pochettino took over as manager, Chelsea have faced various problems, but the biggest one is the absence of a reliable striker. Nicolas Jackson has been the primary choice for this role, but he has only scored two goals in the league, while Raheem Sterling is the top scorer with three.
Considering the substantial investments Chelsea has made in recent transfer windows, it’s surprising that they still lack a proper center forward. According to a report from Spain, The Blues are considering to bring back former striker Tammy Abraham from Roma. He is currently at Roma but hasn’t played a single minute in league this season due to an ACL injury. Abraham might want to leave Roma in January given his recent struggles, and Chelsea see him as a solution to their attacking problems.
Tammy Abraham’s Potential Chelsea Return
This potential signing of Abraham may raise eyebrows, as Chelsea let him go in the past, believing he wasn’t a key player for their future. However, Abraham has matured and improved as a player, with 36 goals in 107 matches for Roma. In 2019, Premier League legend Rio Ferdinand praised Abraham’s development, highlighting his hold-up play and ability to involve teammates. Abraham has also continued to progress, scoring three goals in 11 appearances for the England national team.
Bringing Abraham back to Stamford Bridge is not without risks, especially given the seriousness of his recent knee injury. He may not be the world-class striker Chelsea needs, and there’s no guarantee of his success. If Chelsea have the funds to spend on a high-quality player, they should consider other options. While Abraham could perform well, there’s uncertainty about whether he can be a resounding success for the team.
