Arsenal’s move for Roma man could be hindered by heavy annual agent fees

Tammy Abraham has been on the radar of Arsenal since he was at Chelsea before he moved to AS Roma at the start of this campaign.

The Gunners want a new striker after losing some of their key frontmen in the last few months.

A move for Abraham makes sense considering that he has scored almost 70 goals in English football.

The Three Lions star has also done very well in his first season in Serie A with Roma.

However, the move could suffer a setback because his agent currently makes a fortune each transfer window he remains in Serie A.

Corriere Dello Sport claims Neil Fewings receives £345,000 for every transfer window Abraham stays at the club.

This will probably make him keep his client at the Italian club for the foreseeable future unless we agree to inherit that agreement.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Abraham has done well in his career so far and he could add more goals to our team if we bring him back to the EPL.

However, the former Chelsea man will likely want to keep playing under Jose Mourinho for now.

Roma will also demand a very huge fee before allowing him to leave the club.

  1. How can an agent make a player stay at a club? Surely you fire your agent if they insist you stay put.!

  2. Don’t see it as an embarrassment TRVL, more just a world we live in today with regards to the agent.

    However, as Declan says, if Abraham actually WANTS to play for The Arsenal, he would make it happen surely?

    Why didn’t MA / Edu get him when he was up for grabs?

    1. that fact alone doesn’t make it any less embarrassing, albeit I clearly know what you’re inferring…I would imagine that Tammy can’t simply fire his agent without having to take on that financial burden

      1. Peanuts for him and then he’d fire him.
        Do you think the agent would kill the golden goose?

    2. Exactly – we coulda had him for 32m. Edu insisted we shift Auba or Laca before moving and bloody Maureen sneaked in.

  3. It’s not embarrassing, 345000 per window or 670000 per year is pea nuts comparing to what we paid for a useless non productive person for donkeys years 7 million GBP or 350000 per week for another useless uninterested player to warm the bench (and ended up in a back injury if you remember). Tammy is class, an English national and the only alternative to Kane (who once again the genius let go). Make it happen Mikel, bring back our boy to our shores, makes more sense than signing some other non homegrown player from the Italian / Spanish league.
