Real Madrid are interested in raiding Chelsea for Tammy Abraham, with club president Florentino Perez tracking the striker according to reports in Spain.
Abraham has made a flying start to the season, scoring 10 goals and assisting four others in 17 appearances and sitting second in the Premier League scoring charts behind Leicester’s Jamie Vardy.
Real are at a crossroads with their attacking options, with 31-year-old Karim Benzema coming towards the end of his career and new signings Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard struggling to settle.
Hazard has only played six La Liga games this term while Jovic has featured in nine but only scored one goal and, according to Don Balon, the Spanish giants are looking for another addition up front to refresh their options.
The source says that Abraham is high on their list of targets and that Perez has been making checks on the striker’s progress, with the England international currently worth around £60m.
Chelsea sit second in Group H in the Champions League – level on points with top side Ajax and third-placed Valencia – following Tuesday’s 4-4 draw with the Dutch side, in which the Blues came back from 4-1 down to salvage a point.
