Pundit ideas Manchester Metropolis to focus on ‘elite’ Chelsea striker
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has been tipped off to make an unlikely summer move from Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old has been fighting for playing time since Thomas Tuchel was appointed coach and could be on his way out of the club by the end of the season.
West Ham United and Aston Villa are closely linked to Abraham, but former Manchester City winger Trevor Sinclair has come up with an alternative idea.
“I’m telling you who might be interested in him is Manchester City – I think he’s an elite striker,” he told talkSPORT.
“I think he would fit Pep’s way. He is clinical and has shown that he is at the top with the top scorers this season and has barely played. “
The suggestion that Abraham could join City is likely in line with England’s urging to name Joe Cole as the new manager of the U21 team.
Sinclair was guilty of that particular nugget, and he has outdone himself with his latest take on Abraham’s future.
The 23-year-old is undoubtedly a decent striker, but 26 goals in 89 Premier League games don’t put him in the elite category.
If City signs a striker this summer, chances are it will be someone who deserves the Elite distinction.
Erling Braut Haaland and Harry Kane immediately come to mind. Abraham won’t be on the city’s radar.
Sinclair is well paid for these opinions. How? Why?
