Everton opinion: Should Silva make a move for Tammy Abraham?
English news outlet the Bristol Post has reported that Everton have entered the race for Tammy Abraham. The Englishman is having an incredible season with Aston Villa and is currently the second highest scorer in the league.
So far, the Chelsea loanee has managed 25 goals in the Championship, beating his career best of 23 for Bristol City.
The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with Crystal Palace (Mirror), Newcastle United (Northern Echo) and even RB Leipzig (Daily Mail). This is despite the fact that in his one spell at a higher level, he struggled to make an impact.
This was at Swansea City last season, with the 21-year-old scoring just eight goals in all competitions, often being dropped for other options.
That caused a few issues between Chelsea and the Swans, but Abraham has clearly moved on since that experience. That is why Everton should consider making a move for the Chelsea man.
The Toffees spent their money wisely last summer, reinforcing key areas but have failed to add a reliable goalscorer. Manager Marco Silva has depended heavily on both Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison.
Neither Cenk Tosun nor Dominic Calvert-Lewin have managed to impress on a consistent basis, scoring just 8 goals between themselves.
Furthermore, a large portion of that has come from the 22-year-old Englishman. It means that there might be a space for Tammy Abraham to walk into, and the 21-year-old would fit well in Marco Silva’s team.
The 21-year-old does some of his best work inside the box, although he can find the net from further out as well. Abraham’s work-ethic and tireless running is a lot like Calvert-Lewin, but he outdoes the Evertonian in other areas.

Tammy Abraham may not be the world class striker that Everton fans yearn for, but the 21-year-old is certainly effective in front of goal. His spell at Swansea City should be taken with a pinch of salt.
The Chelsea man has shown his ability to move on from a mediocre season and has the mentality to survive in the top-tier.
