Tammy Abraham has previously talked about Arsenal , revealing he was a Gooner growing up.
The 23-year-old is out of favour at Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel and has already been offered to Borussia Dortmund as part of a player-plus-cash deal to sign Erling Haaland.
However, the Bundesliga side snubbed the offer resulting in other clubs expressing an interest in the forward, including Arsenal.
According to The Sun, Gunners are currently leading the race to snap up the forward on loan, with an obligation-to-buy clause worth £40million included in the deal.
Abraham has not yet addressed the prospect of signing for Arsenal, but he has spoken out about the north London club in the past, admitting he was a Gooner growing up.
Abraham told The Telegraph: “To be honest I was an Arsenal fan. It didn’t make any difference at Chelsea.
“When you’re young and you choose who to support, if it’s a family thing, it’s a family thing. Luckily for me it was a family thing, so it wasn’t really a problem at Chelsea.
“Someone I looked up to was Thierry Henry. His variations of finishing, his movement, the way he dribbles… someone like that has a key impact on me. I would love to be as big as him and maybe even better.”
