Leicester City will reportedly be in the market for a striker this summer, and one of the names that has attracted their attention, according to Fabrizio Romano, is Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham.
The first name that comes to mind when it comes to strikers at Leicester is, of course, Jamie Vardy, but at the age of 34, the experienced goalscorer has definitely entered his declining years. He started the season rather well, but a groin surgery which he underwent in January seems to have completely put him off. He has scored only once in 11 games since.
The Foxes are obviously searching for a fresh source of goals. They’ve been linked with Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard, but it seems Abraham’s situation at Stamford Bridge has their eyebrows raised as well. The 23-year-old was a regular starter under Frank Lampard last season, but this term he has fallen down the pecking order following the arrivals of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. Since Thomas Tuchel took charge of the team, Abraham has started only three games (two in the Premier League, one in the FA Cup), though it should be said he missed the entire month of March with an ankle injury.
