Report: Arsenal willing to pay Tammy Abraham wages, he wants £125k-a-week
Arsenal are willing to give Tammy Abraham the money he wants in his next contract and are open to giving him £125k-a-week to tempt him from Chelsea.
Abraham has emerged as a target for the Gunners in recent weeks. Mikel Arteta is apparently looking for a new number nine, with question marks over the futures of Alex Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.
And now The Express have claimed that Arsenal do indeed have the money to land Abraham. They claim a £125k-a-week offer could be waiting for the Chelsea man. He currently earns around £80k-a-week at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are thought to want around £40m for Abraham. However, there has also been talk of a potential loan to buy deal. That, of course, would suit Arsenal, given their other pursuits this summer.
Abraham was shunted out of the picture when Thomas Tuchel arrived, despite flourishing under Frank Lampard.
A move, then, seems more and more likely as Chelsea themselves look to add more firepower this summer.
For all the good players Arsenal have, they don’t have a presence up top like Tammy Abraham. He’s big, quick for his size, and as Jack Grealish once commented, good with the ball.
“Unbelievable. Couldn’t believe how good he was with the ball for how tall he is. Loved playing with him,” Grealish previously commented.
Abraham could make a big difference for the Gunners. He has scored goals already at Premier League level and will have a point to prove too.
With other forwards looking likely to leave, paying £125k-a-week for Abraham is not the worst idea ever.
