Everton consider to bring ex-Chelsea striker back to England due to ‘buy-back clause’

According to iNews, AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham, who is valued at £67m, is reportedly being sought after by Everton and Aston Villa this summer.

The 25-year-old had a successful loan spell at Aston Villa during the 2018/19 season, where he helped them win promotion to the top flight by scoring 25 league goals. Abraham has been doing well at Roma under Jose Mourinho for the past two years, but with Everton in need of attacking reinforcements, a return to the Premier League could be on the cards for him.

Both Everton and Aston Villa are interested in the England international. However, Roma is demanding a fee of around £67m, which is the reported figure of his buy-back clause, that could be activated by Chelsea, his former parent club. Everton tried to acquire forwards in the January transfer window but was unsuccessful. Nevertheless, contact was established with Roma over Abraham.

Relegation battle

It seems unlikely that Abraham would move to Everton, given his desire for a return to England and his ability to play top-level European football next season. As Everton is facing a relegation battle, they may not have the necessary pull to attract top elite targets like Abraham and may need to focus on more realistic options.
