Roma Potentially Open to Offers for Struggling Striker

Tammy Abraham has taken a decisive step back in his second season at Roma. He has scored just 4 goals in 21 appearances so far, routinely missing sitters. His team hopes he can get back on track in the second half of the campaign. Otherwise, they’ll inevitably have to mull a summer departure considering how much they spent to sign him.

As per Calciomercato, the Giallorossi no longer consider him untouchable, but the fee to part ways with him would have to be very sizeable. They paid €40M to acquire him from Chelsea in 2021. It’s hard to imagine the Blues activating their €75M buy-back option at this point. But the striker could have different suitors in the Premier League. In particular Aston Villa, where he had a fine campaign on loan in 2018/2019, massively contributing to their promotion from the Championship.

Despite some lulls, Abraham generally fared well in his first year with Roma, tallying 27 goals and 5 assists in 53 appearances. He hasn’t been able to build on it nor to gel with Paulo Dybala and Nicolò Zaniolo, who generally partner with him offensively.

The Englishman will have to turn it around in a hurry. Otherwise, José Mourinho is ready to bench him, giving minutes to Andrea Belotti or newcomer Ola Solbakken. In addition, the Giallorossi can also build the attack around Dybala, playing without a pure no.9.

Our Take on Roma and Abraham

The reasons for the season-long funk of the center-forward are mysterious, but he has really been a shell of himself so far. The best-case scenario for the capital side is him finding a way out of his struggles, as they risk a financial bloodbath if he doesn’t.
