Wolves Opinion: Why Wolves should beat Leipzig to sign Tammy Abraham?
The 21-year-old is absolutely tearing it up in the Championship on his loan spell this season, where he has already scored 21 goals in 33 appearances for Aston Villa. Tammy Abraham was the subject of intense interest from Wolves in the winter transfer window but opted to stay put at Villa Park.
The report claims the Villa loanee is also a target for RB Leipzig, with the young English-based striker latest to attract interest from the Bundesliga. But Wolves should do everything possible to beat Leipzig to the signature of Tammy Abraham in the summer transfer window.
Wolves have been astonishingly so good in the Premier League since winning promotion last summer.
Nuno Espirito Santo showed his ambition in the transfer window by recruiting some really top talents from Europe. One of them has been Raul Jimenez, who made the switch to Molineux on a season-long loan from Benfica.
Jimenez has been a revelation for Wolves this season, impressing with his all-round displays as a traditional number 9. The Mexican has dazzled in the Premier League and deserves to get his loan deal turned into a permanent one.
Diogo Jota, Jimenez’s partner up front, has hit top form of late as he helped Nuno’s side knock Manchester United out of the FA Cup quarter-finals earlier this month. Regardless of Jota doing well, there is a lack of depth as far as Nuno’s options in the strike department are concerned.
Wolves are just an injury away from crisis and Nuno should address it by bringing in Abraham. Blessed with pace, quick feet and dribbling skills, Abraham is a talented player who has been ripping apart defences in the Championship this campaign.
The 21-year-old has a good first touch and wonderful ball control which allow him to keep the ball at his feet and run at defenders. He is a natural goal-scorer as he can put away chances that come his way inside the box.
One complication Wolves could face while signing Abraham is Chelsea’s transfer ban. FIFA slapped the Blues with a two-window ban on signing players and as things stand that will come into effect this summer.

Hence, it is possible that Maurizio Sarri would want to keep hold of Abraham and put faith on the young gun next season. If not, Wolves will bag a massive coup by signing Abraham as he will be simply brimming with confidence off the back of a stellar campaign with the Villans.
