Mikel Arteta’s side are now said to be ‘monitoring’ former Chelsea attacker Abraham along with fellow Premier League side Aston Villa, as per a report by CalcioMercato. He has scored three Serie A goals so far this season in 15 appearances.
Arsenal are five points ahead of Manchester City in the table right now and bringing in another striker this winter would be a shrewd move ahead of the second-half of the campaign, especially if Jesus is struggling with injury. Abraham, 25, would give them something different up top if they were to lure him back to London.
He made the move over to Italy last year on a permanent basis and fired 27 goals in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s side last term. Despite not reaching the same heights this time around, he is still a highly valued member of thier squad.
The England international rose up through the youth ranks at Chelsea and went on to find the net 30 times in 80 games for the Blues. He also had loan spells away from Stamford Bridge at Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa to gain experience.
