Arsenal should go all out to get this Chelsea striker in the summer

Abraham Could Be A Good Arteta Addition

 

After enjoying a 2019/20 campaign where he was the main man in Chelsea’s attack, Tammy Abraham now finds himself down the pecking order. It appears the striker’s time at Stamford Bridge is coming to an end, but could he find an opportunity elsewhere in London, and could that club be Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal?

The Gunners, who are tenth in the Premier League table at the time of writing, have limited striking options. If rumours are to be believed, they could be losing Alexandre Lacazette in the summer. So far, Eddie Nketiah has failed to live up to expectations, although there is still time. And Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be thirty-two when next season gets underway. It makes Abraham an exciting proposition and one worth mulling over.

Abraham, at twenty-three years old, is considerably younger than both Lacazette and Aubameyang. Arteta is showing his willingness to integrate younger players into his thinking, developing them along the way. So, it would be a tick in that respective box. While Frenchman Lacazette could leave the Emirates this summer, Aubameyang will stay put, and he can be a mentor to Abraham and Nketiah.

Londoner Abraham has a fair amount of top-flight experience under his belt already, having made eighty-seven appearances in total, including a loan stint with Swansea City. The forward has amassed 5,007 on pitch minutes in those eighty-seven games, bagging twenty-six goals and eight assists. It means he has a direct goal involvement every 1.6 games, which is some going for a player who you wouldn’t class as a regular starter at the level.

Arsenal continues to battle in the league, but football odds at William Hill Sportsbook suggest securing a place in Europe via their league finish could be beyond them this season. The Gunners are still active in the Europa League, and winning the trophy could be their route into the Champions League for 2021/22. Either way, you’d imagine Abraham can benefit Arsenal. If they aren’t in Europe, it will allow him to show what he can do by focusing on the league. If they qualify for a continental competition, he will add depth to a restricted forward line.

You can be sure that Abraham will fit into Arteta’s style of play and preferred formation. At Chelsea and elsewhere, he has proven himself capable of leading the line as a sole striker, bringing others into play while getting amongst the goals as well. Standing at 6’2″, the six-time England cap has the frame to deal with the game’s physical side but has athleticism and flair, too.

West Ham and other clubs have already been linked with Abraham, whose deal at Stamford Bridge ends in 2023. He is likely to be one of the hottest properties around in the summer transfer window, but if Arteta and Arsenal did make a move, you’d imagine he would find it hard to resist if the project and terms were right. And, he will fit in with the new-look Arsenal that is being moulded.

    sorry is it the same Abraham we all watch or there’s another Abraham you’re talking about?
    The boy offers nothing and is basically Auba 2.0 if he’s not running into the 18 yards box to tap in.
    He’s basically a passenger if he’s not on the score sheet so hell no and what happens to Martinelli as 9? As Arteta already says he sees Martinelli as a perfect 9 instead of a winger

    Size isn’t everything for a CF he might be 6’2 but i can’t think of the last time he scored a header and i wouldn’t call him a physical player nothing like Giroud Wood..no not worth the money.

  5. Jo-Gunz says:

    I’d rather offer Balogun and Martinelli more play time

  6. HAPISOL says:

    NO, thanks but NO. Period ✅

  7. Sue says:

    Abraham? Bambi on ice a lot of the time. No thanks!

    In contrast to most other opinions so far on this thread, I much rate Abraham and would be keen to see him wear our shirt. But it will never happen while Kroenke owns us and thus it is pointless discussing clear hypotheticals any further.

  9. Nazzy nice says:

    I think and i know he’s not the right man for Arsenal, he shoud find somewhere else and fix him self thank you!

  10. Joe. S says:

    Yes, definitely. Arsenal would suit his playing style. I think he’d have the same impact that Danny Welbeck did before his serious injury.

    Arsenal is best among all epl teams
