Leicester City linked with a move for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham
When it comes to the transfer market, Leicester are simply one of the best in the business.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Leicester City are linked with a move for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.
The 23-year-old’s contract at Chelsea is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
The striker has banged in 12 goals and provided 6 assists in 32 matches this term on all fronts.
The 23-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England. Abraham has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in six senior appearances for the England national team.
He is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Chelsea this summer and the list of suitors in the England international continues to grow.
Brendan Rodgers wants to sign a new striker and Abraham is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The England international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of striker Rodgers wants to target in the summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Brendan Rodgers’ side.
According to the report, “Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is targeting Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham. The Leicester Mercury says the Foxes remain interested in Abraham. Rodgers’ side are set to sign Lille midfield star Boubakary Soumare in the coming weeks, and the Foxes are also sniffing around a striker much closer to home. After Olivier Giroud extended his stay at Stamford Bridge on Friday, Abraham’s minutes now look limited under Thomas Tuchel with Leicester one of many clubs credited with an interest in the frozen-out 23-year-old.”
