‘Welbeck 2.0 Imo’ ‘Would Be A Great Buy’ ‘We Don’t Need Him’ Fans Discuss Arsenal’s Interest In 40M Chelsea Star

Arsenal are interested in signing Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham, according to the Daily Telegraph‘s Matt Law:

The journalist is usually very reliable when it comes to transfer stories so it seems likely that the Gunners are genuinely interested in snapping up the 23-year-old.

Supporters on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the news, with some believing Abraham isn’t an upgrade on what they already have in the first-team squad:

Abraham’s reported price tag is £40m, which is pretty steep, considering Arsenal are not in desperate need of a striker. Things may change in the coming weeks, though.

Both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah have less than a year left on their contracts at the Emirates and if either one or both depart, it could leave manager Mikel Arteta short of options up front.

Folarin Balogun and Gabriel Martinelli are young players so it could be argued it would be asking too much of them to provide cover for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but whether Abraham is the solution, it is an open question.
