Arsenal Are In The Race To Land AS Roma Striker: What Will He Add To Arteta’s Side?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Tuttomercatoweb mentioned that Arsenal are in the race to land AS Roma striker Tammy Abraham. It has been mentioned that the Gunners will have to fight it out with Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United in pursuit of the English centre-forward.

Abraham’s Decent Goal-Scoring Record At The Stadio Olimpico

Abraham is experiencing a fruitful campaign in Italian football as he has put in a series of productive performances as the focal point of Jose Mourinho’s attack. The ex-Chelsea marksman has banged in 24 goals and secured five assists in 46 matches for the Italian outfit this season across all fronts.

The London-born talent has proven himself to be a valuable asset at Roma by averaging 2.6 shots, 1.0 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in Serie A. However, he needs to work on improving his ball distribution based on his pass completion rate of 72.1% in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).

What Will Abraham Add To Arsenal Boss Mikel Arteta’s Team?

Abraham can use his pace and power to create some headaches for the opposition centre-halves. He is slowly transforming himself into a decent finisher in the final third and has done well to also contribute by picking up the odd assist from time to time. Abraham can even make a few intelligent runs with the ball in behind the opponent’s backline.

The London-born talent is about to enter his prime, so Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta can expect to get the best out of him if he can figure out a way to recruit him this summer.

We can expect Abraham to add a lot of firepower to the Gunners‘ frontline and even help them compete for a major trophy in the coming seasons. At 24, the English frontman has got a promising future ahead which makes him a good option for Arteta to consider at the end of this campaign.

Abraham knows the Premier League well from his time at Chelsea, so he won’t have any trouble settling into life at the North London club if they manage to get him on board later this year.
