Arsenal’s search for a new striker goes on, and they are preparing for an assault on several fronts to conclude that search in the summer.
Mikel Arteta’s side needs goals and their current forwards have failed to provide enough of that.
Several strikers have been linked with a move to the Emirates, and it could be a return to England for Tammy Abraham.
The former Chelsea man has been at AS Roma in this campaign after joining the Italians last summer.
Under Jose Mourinho, he has been doing well and has scored 24 goals in all competitions for them.
Daily Star Sports claims he has become Arsenal’s main transfer target, and the Gunners will push to sign him at the end of this season.
Roma will want to keep their key man so they can build a team capable of challenging for titles, but every player has a price.
The report claims the Gunners will offer the Italians £50 million if they clinch a return to the Champions League at the end of this season.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Abraham is a decent striker and he is proving in Italy that he can adapt to different systems.
The former Chelsea man could be the goal machine we have been looking for. If we bring him back and add other attackers to the group, we could do better than challenging for the top four next season.
WATCH Mikel Arteta on Granit Xhaka, a phenomenal game, and Tottenham…
Naaah!! Not a fan of his.
My only concern with Tammy is that his profile doesn’t seem to fit the modern trends in the game.
Teams seem to do better these days with a more rounded team player upfront compared to the traditional No: 9 target striker.
We can’t afford to make another PEA error or copy the failed 100M Lukaku mistake at Chelsea.
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is a better player, stronger, faster, almost the same height and more energetic. Their price might differ but Victor is better, my opinion though.
I would support MA and Edu if they go in for Tammy. Hes got PL experience, was underrated at Chelsea and they sold him to buy Lukaku which failed, is a real goal threat and has a good conversion rate from chances created and also has got good link up play. Also he is teammates with Saka and ESR at national team level and that will be an added help. He should give us lots of goals and if Nketiah signs an extension, we will have 2 young strikers, full of pace and running which will bode well for the next season and the seasons to come.
