Tammy Abraham could be the latest player to head to the Saudi Pro League. With Lukaku looking set to join Roma in the near future, Tammy could well find himself dropping down the order at Roma. One option, according to Calciodangolo, is that Tammy could be sold to a club in the Saudi Pro League.
With an injury keeping him off the pitch till at least January 2024, Roma might look to cash in while they can, with Saudi clubs willing to take the risk on his injury.
Tammy Abraham to Saudi?
If sources in Saudi are correct, Al-Ettifaq is the club looking to bring Abraham to the Pro League. And while his injury will be a risk, it might be a calculated one giving what Tammy has already proven he's capable of in Italy.
Tammy has been great since moving to Italy. In his 107 appearances for the Italian side, he's scored 36 goals and 12 assists. Though sadly for Tammy, this glowing form hasn't seen him make much of an impact for the England national side, as he remains mostly forgotten about by manager Gareth Southgate. A situation that will unlikely improve if he moves to the Saudi Pro League.
At just 25 years old, Tammy isn't even in his prime years, and with a 3-year contract demand, Tammy might have that in mind. Assuming he joins and sticks with the contract, Tammy could get another shot at proving himself in the Premier League, after he was tossed aside by Chelsea at a young age.
How much would Tammy Abraham cost?
Joining from Chelsea in the summer of 2021, Tammy Abraham has hit the ground running in Italy. Even briefly sparking rumours that he might head back to Chelsea, given the London club has an option to trigger a buy-back clause in his contract.
For now, however, it looks like Roma might be looking to cut their losses on a player currently set to miss nearly half the season. Roma appear to be willing to accept offers in the region of just £17m for the English attacker. While the fee might seem low, this is mostly due to said injury. Al-Ettifaq, the club interested in signing Tammy would need to give him a three-year contract of at least £8m per year after tax. Roughly rouble what he's earning in Italy right now.
With both Roma and Tammy seemingly willing for the deal to happen, it might just come down to if Al-Ettifaq are willing to take the risk, giving his current injury. Al-Ettifaq, currently managed by Steven Gerrard, have allegedly inquired about just how bad his injury currently is. Providing they get the details they need, that should be enough for them to make a move. Regardless, it looks like a bargain signing given some of the numbers being offered for players currently.
Al-Ettifaq currently sit 5th in the Saudi Pro League, and having a striker of the quality of Tammy Abraham would probably go a long way to seeing them climb up the table.
