Arsenal is seriously considering making a move to raid Chelsea football club for the services of striker Tammy Abraham. The striker is said not to be in the plans of manager Thomas Tuchel and wants to leave Stamford Bridge this summer in search of more playing time.
The Sunday Express says Arsenal is ready to meet Tammy Abraham’s wage demands to bring the Blues forward to the Emirates this summer to bolster their striking options.
The player is on around £80,000 a week wages at Chelsea but wants £125,000, and the Gunners have indicated in talks that they are prepared to offer him that figure.
Chelsea is very willing to let the 23-year-old go out on loan this summer with a view to a permanent deal as they clear the decks to fund a £160million bid for Borussia Dortmund’s Norway striker Erling Haaland.
Arsenal are not the only Premier League team interested in the player, Tammy Abraham has been linked with a move to West Ham and Aston Villa but the £40m price tag placed on the striker by Chelsea is putting bidders off a permanent deal at the moment.
The striker strongly feels that with more game time he can force his way back into the England squad ahead of the 2020 World Cup after missing a slot in Euros 2020 where his country made it to the final.
