Man Utd keen on shock Tammy Abraham transfer as Arsenal also target Roma’s former Chelsea striker this summer

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly joined the race to sign Roma striker Tammy Abraham in the summer.

The 24-year-old Englishman has set Serie A alight since arriving from Chelsea for £34million at the start of the season.

He has scored 23 goals and provided four assists in 40 appearances for Jose Mourinho‘s side.

And his sensational form also saw him re-called to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the recent friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast.

Abraham was forced to pull out of the matches due to back pain, but the goalscoring prowess he has shown in Italy has undoubtedly caught the attention of some of the Premier League‘s biggest clubs.

And according to Corriere della Sera, Man Utd are willing to shell out £76m to attract the former Blues man.

This news will have put Arsenal on red alert as they have been heavily linked with a move for Abraham.

However, journalist Fabrizio Romano has gone on record as saying he does not believe Roma will sell Abraham in the summer.

He signed a contract until 2026 with the Italian giants.

If Abraham is not a viable option for Man Utd then they could turn their attention towards Benfica striker Darwin Nunez instead.

It was revealed on Tuesday that the Uruguayan forward has a £127million release clause in his contract.

But it is thought the Portuguese side are willing to do business for around £68m – with Man Utd and Arsenal linked with his signature.

However, the Red Devils could be set to miss out following the latest revelation.

According to The Telegraph, a deal for Nunez hinges on the club providing him with Champions League football.

And that is something Man Utd may not be able to give the prolific striker.

They currently sit four points adrift of the Champions League places with just nine games remaining.
