According 90 minutesAston Villa have made contact to potentially sign Tammy Abraham from Roma this summer.
The England striker has had a fantastic season in Italy and, as all Villa fans know, he is an incredibly talented footballer.
Indeed, the faithful of Villa Park know well the genius of Abraham. The striker, of course, spent the 2018/19 season on loan at the Second City, and his 25 goals helped the Villans win promotion.
Villa fans were quick to appreciate Abraham, and the striker also impressed the club’s star player – Jack Grealish.
Indeed, Grealish had nothing but good things to say about Abraham in an Instagram Q&A back in 2020.
What was said?
Waxed-lyrical Grealish after being asked for his thoughts on Abraham.
“Amazing. Couldn’t believe how good he was with the ball for his size. Loved playing with him,” Grealish wrote.
Grealish says he couldn’t believe Abraham’s combination of size and skill, and that’s what makes him such a unique striker.
Standing at 6-foot-3, Abraham can play the role of an old-school number nine target man, but if he needs to, he can also be so much more than that.
Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa could really do with a striker like Abraham as the focal point of their attack, and as Grealish’s past praise shows, he is a fantastic footballer.
Whether or not Villa can tempt Abraham out of Rome remains to be seen.
