Tottenham striker Harry Kane has hailed the progress of Tammy Abraham at Roma.
After leaving Chelsea last summer, the 24-year-old netted 27 goals in 53 games in all competitions in his first season under Jose Mourinho at Roma. It ended with him lifting the inaugural Europa Conference League last month, and Arteta is reportedly eyeing a move for him.
Ahead of England’s Nations League defeat to Hungary on Saturday, Kane heaped praise on Abraham after his ‘fantastic season’. And amid Premier League return links, Kane has placed his international teammate among other ‘great English strikers’ in the nation’s top flight.
He said: “I think that Tammy is a great player. He’s had a fantastic season at club level, he’s still learning and has the experience to gain, but every time he comes here, he works hard and trains hard. He wants to impress the manager, he wants to score goals, and of course, it’s great to have competition in every position.
“In the Premier League, we have some great English strikers who are scoring goals on a regular basis. Tammy is doing that for Roma as well, so he’s a great player, and I’m sure he’ll want to keep improving [and] keep working hard. That’s what he’ll try and do in this camp and going back to club level as well.”
