Transfer: Tuchel told to bring back ex-Chelsea striker as Lukaku, Werner leave
Chelsea could re-sign Tammy Abraham from Roma, as Thomas Tuchel continues his search for a player to lead his line.
Tuchel has sanctioned the returns of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner to Inter Milan and RB Leipzig on loan and permanent deals respectively.
However, according to former Crystal Palace chairman, Simon Jordan, the German could now bring back Abraham just after one year in Italy.
“Both Chelsea and Manchester United need centre forwards, Abraham has scored 17 or 18 goals for Roma last year, I am not sure why he is not in the conversation for Manchester United or Chelsea,” Jordan said on talkSPORT.
“Even sides that clearly have a need for a certain type of player, because I don’t think Raheem Sterling is going to be the answer for Chelsea from a focal point.”
Chelsea sold Abraham to Roma last summer for £34million and the 24-year-old netted 17 goals and provided four assists in 37 Serie A games.
He also scored nine times in 13 Europa Conference League games as Roma won the inaugural competition.
