Premier League side, Arsenal, are willing to meet Tammy Abraham’s wage demands in a bid to bring the out-of-favour Chelsea striker to the Emirates this summer, according to The Express.
Gunners boss, Mikel Arteta is revamping his squad, after Arsenal finished eighth in the Premier League last season and has already secured the signatures of the young duo of Nuno Tavares and Albert Lokonga, while a deal for Ben White is near completion.
The Spanish coach is expected to bring in more additions with a right-back, central midfielder, goalkeeper and playmaker all on the agenda, while it looks as though Arteta is also hoping to land himself a new striker too.
Abraham has emerged as a top target, with The Athletic confirming last week that Arsenal are keen to sign the England international this summer, with the striker understood to be open to the idea of moving across London.
The Express are now reporting that Arsenal have initiated talks with Abraham’s representatives and indicated they’re prepared to meet his £125,000-a-week wage demands – an increase on his current £80,000-a-week salary.
Chelsea are ready to offload the 23-year-old, as they look to make room for a marquee signing and The Express says they’re prepared to sell if £40m is put on the table this summer.
