Former Arsenal player Nigel Winterburn has joined calls for the Gunners to sign in-form AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham.
The England international left the Premier League to join Jose Mourinho’s side last summer despite reported interest from Arsenal in signing him.
He took Italy’s top flight by storm and is now one of the competition’s finest players, having scored 15 goals in 29 league appearances for his current employers.
Arsenal don’t have a striker who can score so many goals for them this campaign, and a move for Abraham could solve our goalscoring problems this summer.
The likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ollie Watkins and Alexander Isak have also been linked with a move to the Emirates, but Winterburn would be happy to see Abraham join the club instead.
He said via The Daily Mail: “Last summer when he was moving there was a connection with Arsenal, I don’t know how much, but it fits the bill of what Arsenal were trying. to do.”
“A young player with huge potential, so my opinion doesn’t change that he would have been a great option for Arsenal.”
Just the opinion of Arsenal
Abraham has proven abroad that he is a quality striker who can thrive in any competition, and he is the type of striker we need as we get closer to a return to European football .
The former Bristol City loanee is still just 24 and will improve at Arsenal if Mikel Arteta works on the parts of his game that need more tweaking.
