Report: Edu about to step up attempts to bring £82,000-a-week player to Arsenal
Tammy Abraham is available for transfer this summer, with Arsenal still interested in the England striker. The Express are now claiming, however, that the Gunners would prefer a loan to buy option.
The 23-year-old will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge. So far, only Arsenal have shown concrete interest, although they want the deal to suit them.
Abraham fired 12 goals last season and registered six assists. He is expected to fall down the pecking order though, with Thomas Tuchel keen to sign a striker.
Timo Werner has spearheaded the attack a lot during 2020/21, with Olivier Giroud in reserve. The Frenchman has now joined AC Milan, whilst Werner is likely to stay at Stamford Bridge.
Abraham would be an interesting addition for Arsenal. If they could take him on loan for the season it would certainly help financially.
Without European football, this term, £40 million would represent a serious outlay for the Gunners. In a year’s time, they might have qualified for Europe once more and those riches would help fund a permanent deal.
In total, Abraham has found the net 30 times in 82 appearances for Chelsea. He would arrive at Arsenal to bolster their attacking ranks, with both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah potentially surplus.
Ideal signing: Abraham could be perfect for Arsenal
This could be a game-changing signing for Arsenal. The Chelsea striker is a confidence player and under Mikel Arteta, he could thrive.
The Gunners incumbent has given lots of game time to the club’s younger players and Abraham could thrive with a show of faith.
He earns £82,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge and that would represent an affordable salary to the Gunners.
Abraham will have designs of being a regular call-up to the England squad and Arsenal could help him achieve that.
