Ally McCoist has told Chelsea on TalkSPORT to learn from their mistakes and sign Tammy Abraham from Roma this summer.

The Englishman enjoyed a stellar campaign with the Serie A side last season, scoring 27 goals and leading his side to Conference League glory.

His time in Serie A has come as a result of him falling out of favour at Stamford Bridge, with Thomas Tuchel in particular hardly utilising the striker during his tenure.

This is despite him showing signs that he could become a top forward in the Premier League, especially in his first season working under Blues legend Frank Lampard.

McCoist has now claimed that the club should acknowledge the mistake they’ve made, and bite the bullet by buying him back for a raised fee.

He said: “The question and dilemma he will have to answer is whether he would want to move back to Chelsea or go to Manchester United.

“I tell you right now, if you’re Chelsea, I admire them for saying they probably made a mistake, and it was, because we were all scratching our heads at the time.

“It was not as though he wasn’t scoring goals or in any good form. I think he has been a bit unlucky at Chelsea.

“He has gone to another country, done exceptionally well, I am just so chuffed for him. He is a player I would like to see around the England squad again.”

Abraham has certainly improved drastically since working under Jose Mourinho, with him seemingly enjoying his football in Italy and not rushing to move away.

Staying in Serie A might be best for his World Cup hopes too, with him no doubt looking to push England captain Harry Kane all the way for a start in Qatar this winter.
