Record – breaking striker Arsenal keen on signing – officially addresses rumours
Roma striker Tammy Abraham has pretty much told Arsenal where he plans to be for the start of next season.
After Chelsea made the big decision to let Abraham leave the club last season for a move to Italian football – Abraham has developed into a top forward for Roma
The former Chelsea and Aston Villa forward, 24, claimed his 16th and 17th league goals for Jose Mourinho’s side in Turin in their final league game of the season – which made him the highest scoring English player in a Serie A season.
His performances over in Italian football has led to constant speculation in the media that a move back to the Premier League may be on the cards – with the likes of United – Arsenal and Newcastle just three clubs linked with a possible transfer move
It is no secret that Mikel Arteta wants to improve that front-line that he has and knows that Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nektiah will never score him the amount of goals that he needs to progress the club
However – it seems that Abraham is very happy at Roma right now and has no plans to leave the club when the transfer window opens up – Abraham told DAZN: “Like I’ve always said, I fell in love with this club from the first day and I will always help the team as much as possible with my goals and assists.
“It’s been a good year for me, I hope to build on this year and hopefully we can finish with a trophy and it can be the perfect year.’
“I love this club. They’ve given me the opportunity to show myself, my heart is here. We’ll see what the future holds, but my heart is here.”
It has been amazing to see one one of the best young English strikers scoring goals for fun over in Italian football – and it is easy to see why Arsenal are keen
But right now – he does not need to come back to England before he is more established – he will be a good signing – but Arteta would still not see him as the clubs number one hitman
