Manchester United have reportedly ramped up their transfer interest in AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham.
Last month, it was reported that the Red Devils have the Englishman on their list of summer transfer targets alongside the likes of Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen.
With the summer transfer period approaching, some behind-the-scenes details have emerged regarding the Old Trafford outfit’s interest in the former Chelsea figure.
According to a recent report from La Repubblica, as relayed by Giallorossi.net (via Sport Witness), United sent scouts to watch Abraham in action in Roma’s recent Europa League match against Real Sociedad.
The report also adds that the Red Devils and Borussia Dortmund have now decided to watch the striker more closely ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.
Since joining Roma back in the 2021 summer transfer window, the 25-year-old has scored 34 goals in 89 appearances across all competitions.
The 2-0 win over Sociedad that United scouts were thought to have watched Abraham in action, saw the centre-forward provide the assist for Roma’s first goal of the game.
In terms of his efforts in Serie A, the England international has scored six goals in 26 league appearances but racked up more shots at goal (49) and shots on target (23) than any other player at the club.
Would you be happy to see Man United sign Tammy Abraham this summer?
As well as that, only two other players in Jose Mourinho’s side have completed more key passes than Abraham (26), which shows that he is capable of creating chances as well as finishing them.
Hailed for his “sensational” performances in the past for Roma by CBS analyst Matteo Bonetti, the former Chelsea star may have to add some more goals to his tally this season if he wants to get United fans excited about him potentially making a return to England this summer and joining Erik ten Hag’s side.
Moving forward, we feel that if the Red Devils aren’t able to secure deals for the likes of Kane and Osimhen this summer, Abraham could be a valid option for them if their recruitment staff feel he’d be a good fit for the team.
