Arsenal must do this one thing before they can sign Tammy Abraham

Arsenal is keen to land Tammy Abraham, but the Gunners will have to offload some of their current players to complete the transfer.

Abraham has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel.

He was a favourite of their previous boss, Frank Lampard, but Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud moved ahead of him in the second half of last season.

Despite the departure of Giroud to Milan, there will still be no space for him at Stamford Bridge with the Blues targeting a new striker.

The Athletic says Arsenal are favourites to add him to their squad and he is even a childhood Gunner who idolised Thierry Henry.

However, they will have to sell before they can add him to their squad this summer.

Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette have been identified as two players who could leave the club.

Both strikers have entered the last year of their current deals at the Emirates and Mikel Arteta knows he has to offload them before he can sign Abraham.

Arsenal has given a new deal to Nketiah, but he wants his future to be clarified before he signs it.

It seems the Gunners will sell Lacazette or allow him to leave for nothing next summer, rather than offer him a new contract.

    AFC – rename it to Arsenal (Flops of Chelsea).Sack Edu and Mikel before more damage is done to the club. Ramsdale 30million? Ben White 50million and Saliba booted out? When we need a CDM and striker? Patson Daka gone for 23million and we want Tammy who will cost nothing less than 40million? Nuno signed when Kolasinac is there and not sold? Some 8million wasted there? Booted out Guendozi and hired some unknown Lokonga for 17million? We should count ourselves lucky if we finish 10th as we slipped from top 2 to top 4 to top 6 to top 8, hopefully not top 10, all due to wrong signings.

    I don’t even know if Arteta and Edu have decided to milk the club dry by trying to sign average players at high prices while other clubs get quality players at a reduced price.

    It seems like we never learn. Always going for Unfancied / reject from other Top clubs.
    How many rejects from Chelsea, United etc have ever worked out for us as compared to not?

      I wonder what arteta is waiting for with Eddie… This guy is at best a cover for the CF position… He has one year left only… What are we doing ? MA did not have enough to think about him ? Made him start ahead of laca in 2020, then benched him for months….

  4. Goonster says:

    We have always called for big money signings but we seem to always end up spending massively on average / okay players.
    Laca
    Ozil
    Pepe
    white
    Partey
    Etc

    It’s not totally our fault as the market is so inflated but our transfer business has been a disaster for the last 8 or so seasons. Ridiculous wages on top of that.

      @Goonster
      Ozick was never average or okay…His form might have dipped. But he was World Class…Get out of your feelings dude. ✌🏾

        *Ozil…

        1. Goonster says:

          @NY_Gunner
          Okay……
          Whatever helps you sleep better.
          👍

      Give the signings a chance to play everyone wanted TP NOW HE’S CRAP Just let them play and after 10 or so games then judge them

      1. Goonster says:

        Partey seems okay. I will give him another season. But from my first impressions of him, Don’t think he is near Gilberto or even injury prone Diaby. Comes off a bit lazy, hardly ever puts in a tackle, slow to recover once he loses the ball. Poor passing. Can’t shoot, gives the ball away far too much etc..

        He is more into the Alex Song category..

    All the same we need a header.Of Lacazette,Aubameyang and the
    Midfielders can work on their Heading abilities, then signing
    Tammy is not necessary at all. But if it is not possible then we do all to aflload from the attack and bring in the tall Tammy who still has much work to do.
    Honestly, Arsenal attackers WASTE the numerous corner kicks that we rightfully earn from enormous pressure that we put. But we always fail to convert into goals since all our attackers shy away from heading in the BOX.
    This aspect of efficient headers in the Arsenal FC must be considered in our defence and our attack, especially during CORNER kicks and in the BOX. This is important in our recruitment policy. It is one of the solutions to our severe goals drought in the PL.
    This is what gives Harry Kane an edge over Sterling at Tottenham and England squads.

    selling lacca is not a good idea I don’t think Abraham is good enough we should buy 3 attacking midfielders instead and try to convince lacca to sign

  8. Nickerless Bender says:

    Ok… might be out there but, I would sign Abraham, resign Eddie, keep Laca for the last year and if I could, sell Auba.

    Abraham and Eddie played together at Chelski and I may be wrong won quite a few youth trophies together. So they already know how each other play. Like Saka, ESR, Willock and AMN.

    Laca needs to be kept… his pure endeavour will rub off on Abraham, Eddie and Balogun for the future. He is known to be a team player.

    Now Auba… sorry, he is (at the moment) a luxury player that didn’t perform last year. It may be me, but his legs seem to have gone. No burst of pace any longer. Not blaming the contract but I think it may have caught him up. Those wasted minutes should have gone to Martinelli to prep him for this season.

    Don’t get me started on Willian🤔

    I just want to fall asleep and wake up when this nonsense is over to find that Abraham is playing his football in claret and blue, (take your pick which team). We don’t want or need another Chelsea cast-off!
