Atalanta interested in Abraham

Atlanta are the latest club to enter the race to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

The 23-year old is also attracting interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal and West Ham, although another potential target, Aston Villa, now seem to be out of the picture.

Abraham had a successful loan spell with them three seasons ago, but they have now signed Danny Ings form Southampton instead.

Atalanta are looking for a potential replacement for Columbian striker Duvan Zapata, who is being linked with Inter Milan, in the event that Romelu Lukaku re-joins Chelsea in what may be one of the biggest transfers of the summer.

Valuation may be an issue though. Chelsea value the England striker at £40 million, but Atalanta are expected to offer £25 million , plus various add-ons and bonuses.

The Italian side are due in London this weekend to play a friendly with West Ham and are expected to hold preliminary discussions with Chelsea then.
