“There’s no doubt about that” Pundit insists Serie A striker suits Arsenal

Noel Whelan is convinced that Tammy Abraham is the man Arsenal needs for their attack, and he urges the Gunners to move for the Englishman.

Abraham struggled for playing time at Chelsea and left the Blues to join AS Roma in last summer’s transfer window.

He had not been expected to thrive in a new country, but he has flourished under the guidance of Jose Mourinho in Rome.

A future back in the Premier League is something that cannot be ruled out for the lanky forward, and Arsenal needs new men upfront.

Mikel Arteta will be supported to improve his squad in the summer, and we expect him to prioritise signing new attackers.

Whelan believes Abraham has everything he needs to become Arsenal’s main striker next summer.

He tells Football Insider: “He’s still young, and he’s got the best years of his career ahead of him. I’m sure it won’t just be Arsenal looking at him, that’s for sure.

“He leads the line so well. Good in the air, good on the floor, and a real poacher’s instinct.

“They’re going to need to go out and get two or three forward players this summer at Arsenal, but he’s someone who will definitely complement them – there’s no doubt about that.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Abraham’s success in Serie A is proof that the striker is a quality player and that experience will help him do even better if he returns to the Premier League.

He is the type of forward that we need, and those skills that Whelan has highlighted will be very helpful if he moves to the Emirates.

  1. Serie A is where failed Premier League strikers go to fatten up their goal tallies.

    Morata could not cut it at Chelsea, but looks good at Juventus.

    Lukaku looked dreadful at United, but scored copious amounts of goals with Inter. But when he came back to the EPL, a dud!!!

    Tammy Abraham didn’t set the world alight at Chelsea, but is scoring for fun with Roma.

    I would go for Ivan Toney before Abraham, even though his ball skills are poor.
    I would rather we got a forward from La Liga than Serie A.

    Remember, the Italian National team struggles to score in International games.

    Just me.

  2. Tammy Abraham to Arsenal can aptly be described as (1) no-brainer (2) low-hanging fruit (3) a striker who ticks all the boxes.

    The player wants to return to his childhood club, his profile fits perfectly with our young squad and we won’t need to break the bank to sign him.

    Besides, Granit Xhaka could be used as a sweetener for the deal. Would Roma and Mourinho refuse Xhaka plus $10M for Tammy? Very unlikely.

    1. Really??? Like, are you seriously meaning that? I mean, did you read again what you wrote down?
      There must be 2 Tammy Abrahams, I don’t know the other one so well since he ticks all the boxes.
      Xhaka & £10m for Abraham? Arsenal players will bite you is you do that.

      1. The same Tammy we tried to sign last year, who has so far netted over 23 times for Roma. I accept your point re. 10M, but it’s a fair starting point for negotiations. Tammy’s upside potential is very high plus he’s British.

        1. Well, I personally don’t see him as elite enough or predatory enough to lead our line on a consistent basis.

        2. When they sold Abraham to Roma,Chelsea inserted a buy back clause( 80M€) from 2023.i can’t see us signing him.

  3. Just cant see Tommy at the level of Arsenal needs.

    Arsenal needs a brave attack bully, one with blistering pace and aerial dominance, highly technically clever with ball at feet.
