Pundit reckons money will stop Arsenal from signing Serie A attacker

Former Arsenal player, Kevin Campbell believes their move for Tammy Abraham could be off already because of his price tag.

The former Chelsea striker only moved to AS Roma last summer, but he might return to England before the start of next season.

His first campaign in the Italian top flight has been a success and Arsenal is considering a move for him.

The Gunners will bolster their squad with new attackers at the end of this campaign as they prepare to build on their recent success.

Abraham’s fine form in Italy makes him attractive, but Roma will not allow him to return to England cheaply.

Football London claims the Italians will demand 80m euros to release the England international.

That fee is unrealistically too much for him, according to Campbell, and he believes the deal will not go through on those terms.

He tells Football Insider: “I don’t think he’s worth that much. Tammy Abraham is a very good player but not at that price.

“I think the price will prove to be the sticking point for Arsenal. If that is the case I’m sure the club will look at someone else.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We would sign more than one attacker when the transfer window reopens, and it doesn’t make sense to splash that much money on Abraham.

In the summer, there would be alternative targets that will cost less and probably guarantee more goals than him.

  1. Play-making strikers like nunez,osimhen,jesus and most especially martinez are up for grabs so i’d rather splash the cash on either of them than abraham.

  2. All depends where we finish ,all these rumours are just that ,I read that edu and Arteta have already identified our next players but how can that be when the season as not finished and we don’t know what European competition we will be in .
    Surely if the club have identified say a top tier forward he is t going to come in if we are playing in the second tier of European football ,same as the club talking about extended Artetas contract ,I would suggest waiting before we know how the season pans out .
    Given Arteta a new contract for finishing out of the top 4 would IMO be an absolute mistake of the highest proportions .
    Unfortunately bathe club seem to have drop their standards over the last few years and that includes player signings as well .

  3. We need quality players if we do or do not qualify for champions league football.

    And let’s face it the gaffer isn’t going anywhere
