Roma Demand Significant Figure for Struggling Striker

Roma have already been linked to a few high-profile forwards to replace Romelu Lukaku, but they won’t just let Tammy Abraham depart for a low figure. On the contrary, they still keep the Englishman in high regard. He could lead their frontline next season, Il Messaggero reported.

The striker missed almost the entire 2023/2024 campaign due to an ACL tear and didn’t look great afterward. He scored and assisted once in 12 appearances. He played second fiddle to Romelu Lukaku for the most part.

Roma paid €41M to sign Abraham from Chelsea in August 2021. They value him €30M currently. They aim to turn a profit on him to have more ammo to acquire a new center-forward and bolster other positions.

The Giallorossi were fully ready to part ways with him last summer, but he suffered the major knee injury in one of the final matches. He took a clear step back in his second year in the Italian capital, hitting the net just 9 times after doing so on 27 occasions in his maiden one.

Our Take on Roma and Abraham

It’s a fair stance but they’d be quite lucky to find a taker at those numbers. The big looming question mark is whether they’ll go ahead and onboard a quality striker anyway, or if they’ll have to wait for his departure to set the plan in motion, which could block them for a large portion of the summer. His best version would be a good fit in Daniele De Rossi’s scheme but might be a thing of the past.
