There is a major similarity between Inter striker Edin Dzeko and AS Roma forward Tammy Abraham this season, according to a report in the Italian print media today.
As has been pointed out by Tuttosport, both strikers have had a much more successful season than many expected them to after making high-profile transfers.
In Edin Dzeko’s case, he is now one goal away from scoring double what he scored in Serie A for AS Roma last season. That seven-goal campaign is why many believed he may now be past his best and unable to provide many goals at Inter.
He currently has 17 goals in all competitions which is a very good return for a 35-year-old striker. He also had the pressure of replacing Romelu Lukaku who was the attacking talisman of Antonio Conte’s side.
For Tammy Abraham, many felt he was not worth the €40 million investment that Roma made but he has now scored 24 goals in all competitions this season.
