Arsenal is interested to sign Tammy Abraham, the 23-year-old Chelsea English striker to their club. This comes after the forward not being a part of Thomas Tuchel’s consistent starting 11 since the arrival of the manager.

Tammy Abraham scored 12 goals and assisted 4 goals in his 32 apparencies last season for Chelsea. This made him the joint highest goal scorer for Chelsea. The other play being Timo Werner who played 20 more games than him last season. Currently valued at 34 million euros by Transfermarkt and has two years left on his current contract. The last full match he played was against Barnsley in the Fa Cup in February. Tammy Abraham had scored the only goal in the game and was awarded the man of the match. This reduction could be concerning the current playing style of Chelsea to play Kai Havertz as a number 9.

Tammy Abraham emergence is credited to the 19/20 season where he scored 15 goals helping Chelsea qualify for the Champions League while under a transfer ban. Many contributed the success of the 2019-20 season to the performances made by Tammy Abraham

Why are Arsenal fans worried ?

Arsenal currently might be looking for a new striker as Alex Lacazette who is 30 now as well as Eddie Nketiah who is 22, have only one year left on their contracts. Due to this, Arsenal is trying to sell them in this transfer market for a reduced fee. If not successful, they could leave Arsenal at the end of the season for free as free agents.

Many of the Arsenal fans have displayed a fear of this a being form of history repeating itself. In the past, Arsenal has signed players from Chelsea such as Willian who haven’t performed as expected. Taking from history the idea of signing a former Chelsea player hasn’t worked in favour of Arsenal many times but Tammy feels to be a different case.


If Arsenal can sign Tammy on a seasonal loan-to-buy deal, it would be quite the transfer for Arsenal. Tammy has 2 years left on his current contract with Chelsea and after the loan move, just a year left which will drastically reduce his market value. Being a player for England adds to his value as well it helps to fill the club quota of having more than a certain number of English players in the club’s final squad.

Mikel Arteta had shown during the games towards the end of 2020 an emphasis on crosses into the box. As well as long balls towards the striker from the goalkeeper to start the play. While not opting to play from the back to add more variation in the team’s style of progressing with the ball. Tammy Abraham last season won 3.4 aerial duels per 90 which is more than any other Arsenal player. This trait can help him become the pivot the team could use in the attack.
