Manchester City have registered their interest in Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, according to Le 10 Sport. The French publication reports the 22-year-old’s contract situation has alerted the Citizens to the player’s availability.
Talks between the Blues and Abraham’s representatives have stalled with the forward demanding £180,000 a week so he is given parity with teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi. The London club have so far refused to give in to the player’s demands.
Le 10 Sport report that City have recently enquired with Abraham and his entourage over whether he would be interested in a move to the Etihad Stadium in the future.
They reportedly expressed a desire to open discussions over the coming months if his situation at Chelsea has not been resolved. His current club are, though, said to be determined to tie down the striker for the long term, with his current deal expiring in 2022.
At this stage, there is no pressure for the Blues to sell but Abraham’s agents may use City’s reported interest as a bargaining chip in negotiations.
