Arsenal has contacted Tammy Abraham’s agent in an attempt to sabotage the Chelsea star’s deal to Roma.
Tammy Abraham is expected to depart Chelsea this summer, with Arsenal and Roma vying for his services…
Arsenal is said to have contacted Tammy Abraham’s representatives to discuss a possible transfer after it was revealed that Roma had agreed to a deal with Chelsea for the striker. The Serie A club is thought to have agreed on an initial loan for Abraham, which will be converted to a permanent deal for roughly £34 million at the end of next season.
Thomas Tuchel has stated that Abraham is free to move on if the right offer comes up.
Despite increased interest from Aston Villa, West Ham United, and Southampton, offers for the striker have been few and far between.
Abraham, who scored in Chelsea’s 2-1 friendly win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, wants to play regularly and is willing to leave the Blues to do so, but Roma is not his preferred destination.
If Abraham is to leave Stamford Bridge, it is thought that he would desire to stay in England, specifically London.
Arsenal has started working on a deal for Bernardo Silva after Man City requested his departure.
Arsenal has made a move for the player, according to Italian publication Corriere dello Sport, although they have yet to contact his representation.
The Gunners are well aware that they must act quickly if they are to beat Roma to the centre-forward position.
Arsenal, on the other hand, will be reluctant to pursue a trade unless Alexandre Lacazette is sold first.
That will be difficult as well, given the lack of interest in the Frenchman this summer.
DON’T MISS OUT Tottenham have agreed to a £60 million trade for Lautaro Martinez, who has a strong Arsenal bid on the table. Chelsea must decide on their next three moves. Man City is willing to offer Tottenham £130 million plus an Arsenal target to buy Harry Kane, while Inter Milan accepts a £97 million proposal for Romelu Lukaku.
Abraham would like to join Arsenal over Roma, as he was a lifelong Arsenal supporter before joining Chelsea.
“To be honest, I was an Arsenal fan,” he admitted in 2017. At Chelsea, it didn’t make a difference.
“If it’s a family issue, it’s a family thing when you’re young and you select who to support.
“Fortunately, it was a family issue for me, so it wasn’t a big deal at Chelsea.”
