Man Utd have 'genuine interest' in shock transfer swoop for ex-Chelsea star Tammy Abraham if they can't get Osimhen | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED have "genuine interest" in Tammy Abraham if they cannot land Victor Osimhen, reports claim.
The Napoli striker is among Europe's deadliest forwards and has long been tipped for an Old Trafford move in the summer.
But he is not the only goalscoring talent in Serie A who has impressed.
Former Chelsea hitman Tammy Abraham has re-energised his career after moving to Roma.
While he is not enjoying his best season he remains an important piece of Jose Mourinho's side.
Caught Offside report that Man United are keeping tabs on the striker as they look for long-term options up-front.

Journalist Ben Jacobs writes: "For Manchester United, the admiration for Abraham is very genuine.
"Ten Hag likes the player. But like Chelsea there are others ahead of him in the queue.
"We know Manchester United love Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, as in fact do Chelsea. Manchester United won’t bill Abraham as a ‘back-up’ to Osimhen, but it’s not a bad way of putting it."
Previous reports have also claimed Abraham is on United's radar, but the star has been linked to Arsenal.

After being turfed out during Thomas Tuchel's reign, he also adapted quickly to life in Italy and struck 17 league goals during his first season at Roma, with the club winning the inaugural Europa Conference League.
He has only managed six in 22 Serie A game so far this season with Roma sat fourth and battling it out for a Champions League space.
Wout Weghorst was recruited as a stop-gap loan for United until the end of the season amid Anthony Martial's injury issues and Cristiano Ronaldo's sudden departure.
