Atalanta enter race to sign Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham

Atalanta enter race to sign Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham with England striker also attracting interest from Arsenal and West Ham… but Aston Villa less likely after signing Danny Ings

  • Atalanta are the latest club to signal an interest in Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham 
  • Abraham, 23, is also on the radar of Premier League clubs Arsenal and West Ham
  • Another potential option, Aston Villa, signed striker Danny Ings on Wednesday

Atalanta have confirmed their interest in Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

The Italian side held a meeting this week to assess targets as Inter Milan are keen to sign Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata.

Inter want the Colombian as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku who they expect will join Chelsea once their £100m plus valuation is met.

Abraham has interest from Arsenal and West Ham while one of his other options Aston Villa moved to sign Danny Ings from Southampton for £25million on Wednesday.

Chelsea value Abraham at around £40m but Atalanta are expected to offer around £25m plus bonuses for the England striker.

Atalanta are due in London this weekend for a friendly against West Ham and are expected to discuss whether they can afford a proposed move for Abraham.

Chelsea are also looking to send reserve striker Armand Broja out on loan. The 19-year-old has interest from Udinese.
