Tottenham ended the summer without signing a single player – that was a Premier League first.
That was not for the want of trying, though. Jack Grealish was continually linked with a move to North London, but that move never materialised. Spurs also launched an audacious raid on Chelsea.
According to Goal, Mauricio Pochettino’s side made a £25M bid for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham. The Argentine was seemingly keen to bolster his options in attack.
Chelsea flat out refused the bid, however. Roman Abramovich stood firm, having no interest in allowing Abraham to walk out the door and join a direct Premier League rival. Well in, Roman.
Abraham’s development may have taken a knock at Swansea last season, but his raw potential remains. He has all the attributes to be a full England international in the future, he just needs the right nurturing.
He’s a Chelsea boy and it should remain that way until he decides his dream is no longer to make it at Stamford Bridge. Credit to the club for snubbing such a sizeable offer.
