Trevor Sinclair urges Manchester City to swoop for £40m 'top player' reportedly on Arsenal radar
Trevor Sinclair thinks Manchester City should move for reported Arsenal target Tammy Abraham.
The Gunners have been linked with the Chelsea striker for a number of weeks.
According to the Daily Express, Arsenal are willing to meet Abraham’s £125,000-a-week wage demands.
The Emirates Stadium outfit is apparently at the head of the queue for a loan move with a view to a permanent deal.
The 23-year-old reportedly has a £40million price tag, and West Ham and Aston Villa are apparently monitoring him too.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are reportedly looking to bring in a new forward to replace Sergio Aguero.
Obviously England captain Harry Kane is believed to be the Citizens‘ top target this summer.
But understandably, Spurs don’t seem willing to let their star player go – at least not for a stratospheric fee.
Reported Arsenal target is a “handful”
Former City ace Sinclair would rather Pep Guardiola sign Abraham for £40million than Kane for over £150million.
Asked by Jamie O’Hara if Sinclair would take Abraham over Kane at City, the latter replied on Monday’s talkSPORT Breakfast: “I would, yeah.
“He’s a young enough player and with Pep Guardiola’s coaching ability and the teammates around him… he’s a top player.
“The season he had at Aston Villa and then he went back to Chelsea and did very well.
“He’s a handful, his pace, he looks to stretch the lines, he’s a finisher.
“No player’s perfect, especially at 22 or 23, but there’s a lot of growth there with Tammy.
“He’d be someone I’d be very interested to see at Manchester City.”
On City’s reported £160million bid for Kane, Sinclair added: “It just goes against my principles of what I think about the club.
“Honestly, it really does. I just don’t want to see the club going out there and spending that ridiculous amount of money to bring one player in.”
