Tottenham Hotspur failed in a deadline day bid to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, according to Goal.com

The report claims that Daniel Levy lodged a bid worth £25million for the England international, but was rejected by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich who did not want to sell the player to a rival.

We all know how the transfer window eventually panned out, despite being linked with the likes of Jack Grealish on almost an hourly basis we became the first club in Premier League transfer history not to sign a player during the summer window.

Abraham spent last season on loan at Swansea City and struggled to score on a regular basis for the Welsh club, who eventually suffered relegation to the Championship.

The 20-year-old is some way down the striking pecking order at Chelsea and could leave on a loan stint to a Championship club before the end of the month.

  1. Yeah yeah yeah, don’t make me laugh, one we never intended to sign anyone and two he’s not worth a penny over £10m anyway.
