Football.London report that Tammy Abraham joins Gabriel Jesus on Arsenal’s shortlist of summer signings.

Arsenal reportedly submitted enquiries for the AS Roma forward in January, and could be set to make a move in the upcoming months.

Arsenal were also interested in Abraham last summer, with reports suggesting the Gunners would have liked to bring him in alongside all their other business in a busy 2021 window.

The problem was that the Gunners failed to move on Alexandre Lacazette or Eddie Nketiah. With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also still at the club at the time, they couldn’t afford a fourth senior striker for a fee of tens of millions plus wages.

It’s a different story this summer, with all three of Lacazette, Nketiah, and Aubameyang likely to be gone.

With Arsenal missing out, Roma signed Abraham for €40m, and he’s gone on to score 24 goals for them in all competitions. In Serie A, he has 15 goals and four assists in 33 games.

Abraham’s eight goals in 10 Europa Conference League games have led Roma to the semi-finals of the competition, where they face Leicester City on Thursday.
