Arsenal are ready to meet the wage demands of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham ahead of a potential transfer this summer, The Express report.
It has been reported by The Express that Arsenal want to sign Abraham from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
The England international striker is on £80,000 per week at Chelsea.The 23-year-old wants £125,000 per week as salary.
Arsenal have reportedly indicated in talks that they are ready to pay Abraham that salary to sign him.
Chelsea are willing to send Abraham out on loan this summer, with Aston Villa and West Ham United also interested.
However, the Champions League winners want £40 million for any permanent deal.
Would Tammy be a good signing for Arsenal?
Described as “unbelievable” by Aston Villa attacking midfielder Jack Grealish during an Instagram Q&A last year when asked about the England international striker, Abraham is a brilliant footballer who is still only 23.
Yes, the striker could not play regularly for the Blues last season, but he has shown what he is capable of when he takes to the pitch on a consistent basis.
The striker scored 15 goals and gave three assists in the Premier League for Chelsea in 2019-20.
During his loan spell at Villa in 2018-19, Abraham scored 26 goals and provided three assists in the Championship.
His stats could speak as he would be a good signing for Arsenal, not just for now, but in the long term as well.
