Another day, another uninspiring transfer target for Arsenal fans to glaze over.

The Gunners are reportedly interested in Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham, according to The Sun.

Abraham spent last season on loan at Bristol City, helping them to fend off relegation with an impressive 23 goals in 40 appearances. The England Under-21 is said to want a move away from Stamford Bridge if he is not to be included in Antonio Conte’s first team plans next season.

Arsene Wenger is an apparent admirer, and sees Abraham’s technical ability as complementing his forward line.

Despite the rivalry between the two clubs, Wenger is confident of landing Abraham if he does not get the promises he seeks at Chelsea.

 

The Verdict

He has clearly done well in the Championship. But, seeking to buying a player – a young one at that – who has only proven himself in England’s second tier bespeaks the woeful lack of ambition that perpetuates the Emirates.

If Arsenal want to compete they need to buy stars, and Abraham simply isn’t.

Perhaps a good squad addition, but the reason he would quit Stamford Bridge is for first team football so he won’t want to simply warm the bench at Arsenal, too.
