Alex Stewart has been speaking on the latest edition of The Athletic’s Tifo Podcast about the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, where he suggested that Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham could be a good fit for Leicester City.

Nice easy one to start off with, who currently sits top of the table?

Since Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge, the 23-year-old has played in five of the German’s 16 games, and he was an unused substitute against Porto in midweek.

This led Stewart to speculate on his future, and he believes that Abraham could be a good signing for Leicester City.

This followed on from the previous edition of the podcast (6th April), in which Seb Stafford-Bloor claimed that the Foxes need another striker who is a mix of Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho, and Stewart thinks Abraham would fit that role.

He said: “I could see him maybe working at Leicester, for example; we talked in the last pod, Seb made a point about Leicester needing options up front, somebody who can sort of work between what Vardy brings and what Iheanacho brings, and Abraham is potentially an answer to that.

“I think he’s too good a player to go to most sides on loan as a rotation option or something.”

Would you like Abraham at Leicester?

Yes, that would be brilliant

TIF Thoughts on Abraham joining Leicester…

currently only have Vardy and Iheanacho as first-team strikers, though can play there as well.

So, you can see why the Foxes might need another forward in their squad, and Abraham, who is valued at £36m by Transfermarkt, could be that .

The former Swansea City loan man has scored 26 Premier League goals in 87 appearances, which is around a one-in-three goal record, which is not as good than Vardy’s but is better than Iheanacho’s.

He is also vastly experienced despite only being 23 and has over 200 senior appearances to his name already, and at the moment, he doesn’t look to be in favour with Tuchel, so he could be the ideal signing for Leicester, and we would like to see it happen.
