According to the print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport (as relayed by Sport Witness), Tammy Abraham is more likely to join Aston Villa than Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Tottenham are linked with Tammy Abraham

Over the last week, several outlets have reported that Roma are prepared to cash in on Abraham and have named Tottenham as one of the clubs circling over the striker.

The latest publication to make that claim was The Telegraph, who said on Thursday that Spurs, Villa and West Ham were all monitoring the 26-year-old’s situation and were considering offering him a route back to the Premier League.

However, it was explained that Ange Posecoglou’s men were yet to make a firm decision on whether or not to push ahead with a move for the former Chelsea man.

Villa are the favourites to sign Abraham

Gazzetta have now named the same three clubs as well as Everton as the ones eyeing a move for Abraham this summer.

The report reveals that the centre-forward came close to a move to Villa Park last summer, with a €40m deal ‘practically agreed’ at the time before the player suffered a cruciate ligament injury.

It is said that a return to the Midlands is the most likely scenario for Abraham, who previously had a loan spell at Villa when they were in the Championship.

Spurs Web Opinion

I can see why Abraham is on the radar of many Premier League sides but given that the striker only recently returned from a long-term injury, I do not think too many clubs would be prepared to pay a big fee for him this summer.

I think most clubs would insist on an initial loan deal with an option to buy the centre-forward next summer.
