Former Celtic target now worth £34m set for move to English Premier League

Former Celtic target, Tammy Abraham is being targeted for a move to Aston Villa.

The 25 year old Roma striker is being allowed to leave the club this summer after making just ten starts and scoring one goal this season for the Serie A giants.

Journalist, Ekrem Konur has said Roma are willing to listen to offers for the player they shelled out £34m for to get from Chelsea.

Did Celtic miss the boat with Tammy Abraham

Brendan Rodgers was looking to bring the talented teenager to the club on loan during the Invincibles season after he scored 26 goals for Bristol City in the English Championship.

The move never materialised and Abraham joined Swansea City. He scored eight in 39 appearances for the Welsh club.

Abraham got his big move to Roma but it’s fair to say it hasn’t worked out for him. In 106 appearances he has scored just 36 goals but now it looks like he could be on the move after this latest announcement.

So it seems Celtic may not have missed out on anything from the striker as his recent scoring rate suggests.

He could have scored goals for fun being supplied by the likes of Paddy Roberts, Scott Sinclair and Tom Rogic.

However, there is no doubt that he is a quality player. And rather than Celtic missing out, I would suggest that not coming to Celtic was Abraham’s mistake, not Celtic’s.
