Arsenal interested in signing former Chelsea star, he scored 27 goals last season

Arsenal interested in signing former Chelsea star, he scored 27 goals last season

He could be exactly what Arsenal need.

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

The 25-year-old was a Champions League winner during his time in England and he scored 27 goals for AS Roma last season.

Jose Mourinho said it was a "real coup" to sign Abraham for just £34million back in 2021 and under the Portuguese boss, the striker thrived in his debut season in Italian football.

However, this season, Abraham has seriously underperformed with just four goals in 20 appearances and that has coincided with his England World Cup squad omission.

Gareth Southgate put his decision to deny Abraham a seat on the plane to Qatar down to the striker's "poor run of scoring form at the wrong time".

“It's not a case where we're three to four weeks away from the finals, we're 10 days," said Southgate.

Abraham is "admired" by some clubs in England

One report suggests Mourinho has started to "lose patience" with Abraham this season after his underwhelming start.

Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb claims Abraham "has some admirers, including Arsenal" when talking about his future club.

While a January transfer is not expected, a summer move is a potential option for the England international.

When Abraham was set to leave Chelsea, The Athletic reported that he had told team-mates that he wanted to join Mikel Arteta's side.

The Gunners currently sit top of the Premier League table but striker Gabriel Jesus has not scored in the league since the first week in October against Tottenham Hotspur.

His lack of goalscoring form could prompt Arsenal to bring in another forward, either in January or next summer.
