If you’re Tammy Abraham, you’re undoubtedly scratching your head about Chelsea’s current striker choices. Timo Werner’s chances of playing first team football were quickly written off when the club paid out £53 million on him last summer – but the German struggled to deal with the demands of the Premier League and failed to prove he was an upgrade.
Last season, Abraham scored the same number of goals as the former Leipzig striker (12) despite playing 20 fewer games and ending as Chelsea’s joint top scorer. However, having been given an opportunity at Stamford Bridge by predecessor Frank Lampard, he has fallen down Thomas Tuchel’s pecking order.
Despite the fact that Olivier Giroud has agreed to join AC Milan, the club is still ready to let him go, and their loss might be Arsenal’s gain. The Gunners are thought to be ahead of rivals Tottenham and West Ham in the race to sign Chelsea’s unwanted man, and with Mikel Arteta’s side struggling in front of goal last season, it may be a match made in heaven.
The 23-year-old was raised as an Arsenal fan who idolized Thierry Henry; he’d leap at the chance to follow in the footsteps of the iconic Frenchman and become a hero at the Emirates.
