England manager Gareth Southgate is set to do everything possible to beat his Nigerian counterpart Gernot Rohr to the service of Chelsea’s in-form striker Tammy Abraham as soon as possible.
The Three Lions boss seems to be uncomfortable after the player’s decision to give Nigeria a chance in the race for his international future and he is reportedly set to keep a close watch on the Chelsea striker during tonight’s Champions League clash with Valencia.
According to the Telegraph, Southgate will send his assistant Steve Holland to the Stamford Bridge Stadium to run the rule over the 21-year-old with a possibility of handling him a recall to the National team.
The newspaper further revealed that Holland will equally keep an eye on another Nigeria-eligible star Fikayo Tomori who scored a beautiful goal during the weekend.
Tomori, who has featured for Canada and England’s youth teams, is also a target for Gernot Rohr who could be in search of Leon Balogun’s replacement anytime soon.
