In a recent report, Calciomercatoweb revealed that Aston Villa have set their sights on re-signing AS Roma forward Tammy Abraham. It has been claimed that the Villans are showing interest in bringing the English striker back to Villa Park next year.
Abraham’s Impressive Run Of Form In Serie A Last Season
The 26-year-old enjoyed a fruitful campaign at Roma recently after he put in a series of impressive displays as the focal point of their attack. Abraham banged in nine goals and picked up seven assists in 54 appearances for the Italian outfit last season on all fronts.
The London-born talent led the line well at times and deserves credit for averaging 1.6 shots, 0.9 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per game in Serie A football. However, he was sloppy when distributing possession deep inside the opponent’s half as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 68.3% in the top tier of Italian football (stats via whoscored).
Abraham has missed a lot of games because of a cruciate ligament injury. He is under contract at Roma until the summer of 2026. Hence, the Villans would have to make a convincing offer if they want to recruit the English talent next year.
Should Aston Villa Boss Unai Emery Bring Abraham Back To Villa Park?
Abraham can engineer some space for himself to get a few strikes in at goal. He can be a good finisher in the final third when he is playing well on the pitch. The English forward can even create the odd chance for his teammates up top. He is a decent dribbler with the ball as well but needs to find a way to improve his passing accuracy in the opponent’s half.
Abraham previously had a fruitful loan spell at Villa Park when he was employed at Chelsea. Hence, he won’t take any time to settle into life at Aston Villa if Unai Emery can find a way to get a deal done for him in 2024.
At 26, Abraham is about to enter his prime in the coming seasons. We can expect him to bring more firepower to the West Midlands club‘s frontline. Hence, the Villans should consider going all out to bring him back to the Premier League soon.
