Trevor Sinclair has said on talkSPORT (8:41am, July 26, 2021) that he would sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

The former City winger has raved about Abraham, and the talkSPORT pundit believes that the former Aston Villa loanee is good enough to actually start for City.

Sinclair said on talkSPORT (8:41am, July 26, 2021) about signing Abraham for City: “I would, yeah. I would have him at Manchester City. Yeah, yeah (start him at Manchester City).

“He is a young enough player. With Pep’s coaching ability, with the teammates around him, I think he is a top player, I really do.

“I think the season he had at Villa, then he went back in at Chelsea and did really well. I think he is a handful. I think he has everything. He has pace, he looks to stretch the lines, he is a finisher.”

Uncertain future at Chelsea

Abraham struggled for playing time at Chelsea last season and has been linked with moves away.

The Express have reported this month interest from Arsenal, West Ham United and Villa in the England international.

Chelsea reportedly value the striker at £40 million, but the 2021 Champions League winners are willing to send the 23-year-old out on loan.

Tammy Abraham to Manchester City?

City do need to sign a striker this summer.

Sergio Aguero has left for Barcelona, and while there is reported interest in Harry Kane, Tottenham seem determined to hold onto the England international.

The striker scored 15 goals and gave three assists in the Premier League for Chelsea in 2019-20.

The youngster showed that season what he is capable of.

However, Abraham is not among the ‘elite’ strikers in the world and is not at the level of Aguero.

Moreover, Chelsea may not be willing to send Abraham to City and strengthen the Premier League champions.
