Roma striker Tammy Abraham’s preference is to remain at the Serie A side, despite interest from Arsenal and Aston Villa, according to reports in Italy.
It is believed that the two Premier League clubs are keen on bringing the former Chelsea academy graduate back to the Premier League, but the player seemingly has other ideas.
Abraham had a strong first season with Roma, following his £34m move from Stamford Bridge, but he has struggled to recapture that form in his second year with the Giallorossi.
The 25-year-old has only hit the back of the net three times since August, and it led to him being left out of England’s squad for the World Cup as a consequence.
Whether the Gunners actually need a forward like Abraham, it is up for debate. Manager Mikel Arteta does have Eddie Nketiah as backup for Gabriel Jesus, while Gabriel Martinelli can also play as a number nine if needed.
