The former Chelsea and England forward moved to Italy in 2021 for £34 million and he has had a decent time at the Olympic Stadium overall.

His first campaign in Serie A saw him net more than twenty goals. However, subsequently he hasn't been as prolific, and Abraham only managed one goal last season as his appearances were severely restricted.

Anyway, media reports claim he is back on Everton's radar although these stories also say he is possibly going to go to West Ham or even more likely to Aston Villa rather than Goodison Park.

What does give this story more of a twist is the fact that Roma's owner Dan Friedkin is one of the parties apparently trying to takeover Everton.

He is considered a strong contender to become the Toffees new owner although others too have put concrete bids on the table for Farhad Moshiri to consider.

This might create a possible conflict of interest between the two clubs both of whom can claim to be significant clubs in their repsective leagues historically.

Another group who are considered strong contenders now are the so-called A-Cap Group of investors who have links to 777 Partners.

This group have provided capital for 777 Partners to loan to the Blues during their ultimately abortive attempt to take control of Everton, which finally failed at the end of May.

Despite this background, apparently Moshiri is prepared to talk to the group about their potential to take over the club that he is desperate to sell.

While this saga rumbles on most Everton supporters just want to see something sorted and a new owner to be in place with a coherent plan for restoring the club's place in English football.
