Juventus explore Tammy Abraham as potential backup for Vlahovic


Juventus have initiated preliminary discussions with Roma regarding Tammy Abraham as a potential backup striker for Dusan Vlahovic. The Bianconeri are looking to strengthen their attacking options and have identified the English forward as a viable candidate.

Gazzetta dello Sport report that in recent days, Juventus has made initial inquiries about Abraham’s availability and Roma’s willingness to negotiate. This exploratory contact aims to assess the situation of the former Chelsea player and explore the possibilities of a loan deal, either dry or with an option to buy.

While there is no formal negotiation yet, Abraham is more than just an idea for the Old Lady. The potential development of this interest into a serious pursuit will likely become clearer in the coming weeks.

However, before finalizing any move for a backup striker, Juventus Technical Director Cristiano Giuntoli has at least two priorities:

1. Completing the midfield restructuring by adding Teun Koopmeiners to Douglas Luiz (already official) and Khephren Thuram (medical scheduled for next week).
2. Securing additional player sales to generate funds and make room for new reinforcements.

The potential acquisition of Abraham aligns with new coach Thiago Motta’s request for a squad of potential starters to foster internal competition and raise the overall level of the team[5]. This strategy is particularly important as Juventus will compete in five competitions in the 2024-25 season: Serie A, Coppa Italia, Super Champions League, Italian Supercup, and the Club World Cup[5].

While Abraham is not the only profile on Juventus’ radar (Genoa’s Retegui is also listed), the club hopes he could become the most convenient option. The English striker’s potential move to Turin has emerged from direct and indirect talks with Roma, who continue to show interest in Federico Chiesa’s situation at Juventus.
