Some Arsenal fans were reacting after Gianluca Di Marzio released some news about the club’s chase of Tammy Abraham.
What’s the story?
According to the transfer expert, the Chelsea man would prefer a move to the Gunners over AS Roma.
However, in order to complete a transfer, the north Londoners must first sell a player. Alexandre Lacazette is the closest to the exit door with the ace having just one year left on his current deal.
The move will come as a blow to the Serie A outfit, who have agreed on a loan deal with a compulsory purchase worth €40m (£34m) with Chelsea.
Abraham would be a different type of striker to Lacazette if he came to Arsenal
Abraham would be a different type of striker if he replaced Lacazette at Arsenal amid Di Marzio’s claim.
The Frenchman is very good well-rounded centre-forward and is better with his back to goal.
His hold-up play and ability to bring his teammates into play makes him one of Mikel Arteta’s favourites. But, there have been question marks over his finished, especially last season.
Meanwhile, you’d say Abraham is more lethal in the penalty box as he’s shown during his career.
Given Arsenal’s struggles to score goals last campaign, the Englishman could be an astute purchase.
Here is how fans reacted…
