Arsenal reportedly want to sign striker who's been compared to Drogba, fans should be thrilled - TBR View

Arsenal have reportedly set their sights on Tammy Abraham.

According to The Telegraph, the Gunners have been alerted to the Chelsea striker’s availability.

As well as Arsenal, the likes of Tottenham and Inter Milan have apparently been offered Abraham.

The Telegraph claims the 23-year-old striker has a £40million price tag.

The 23-year-old is contracted until 2023 on a reported £58,000-a-week deal.

But it looks as though Abraham’s parent club is prepared to cash in on him and use the funds to move for someone like Erling Haaland.

Nonetheless, Arsenal’s reported interest in Abraham should excite Gunners fans, as he’s a great player.

Tammy Abraham: The story so far

Abraham has enjoyed a successful career so far after coming through the ranks at Stamford Bridge.

He took in three loan stints, two of which were especially fruitful.

Abraham scored 23 Championship goals at Bristol City in 2016-17, helping them survive in the second tier, plus three more in the League Cup.

As a result, he won a clean sweep of club awards – Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year and Top Goalscorer.

The following season, Abraham played for Premier League Swansea, where he scored eight goals in 39 appearances across all competitions.

Sadly, he couldn’t prevent them from being relegated that season.

In 2018-19, Abraham linked up with Aston Villa and, like at Bristol City, was sensational, scoring 26 Championship goals en route to promotion.

Since then, the 6ft 3in marksman has become a regular at Chelsea, making 79 first-team appearances over the past two seasons.

Abraham claimed 18 goals and six assists in 2019-20, and 12 goals and six assists last season.

Style of play

The Coaches Voice wrote last year: “Operating as a central striker, Abraham offers a variety of supporting movements to join and create attacks.

“His most common movement involves attacking the spaces in behind an opposing defence, to pursue through-balls.

“Those direct, penetrative runs contribute to regular goalscoring chances, though his finishing when one-on-one still needs to improve.

“Abraham most commonly scores from instinctive efforts, inside or near the penalty area, even when he has limited time and space.”

In the past few years, fans have compared him to the likes of Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Adebayor.
