Roma’s Tammy Abraham is keen on the idea of a return to London with Arsenal interested in signing the former Chelsea striker.

Abraham, 24, has been a revelation in Italy this season, scoring 27 goals in 52 appearances.

The Gunners are looking to sign a new striker to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who left to join Barcelona in January and have identified Abraham as one of their top targets.

According to The Athletic, Arsenal tried to sign the Englishman last summer before he headed to Serie A and have been watching him closely ever since.

It is likely the north Londoners would have to pay a premium for Abraham with Roma reportedly reluctant to sell.

Mikel Arteta is in desperate need of strikers with the possible departures of both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah, whose contracts expire next month.

Abraham fits the bill having played in the Premier League before, scoring 21 goals in 58 appearances for Chelsea.

Reports suggest Arsenal also hold an interest in Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus and Juventus’ Paulo Dybala.

However, securing those two signings could be harder without Champions League football to offer.

The Gunners have qualified for the Europa League next season and need additions to their squad to manage the extra games.

Meanwhile, Arteta is targeting a top-four place next term and believes signing a top striker will help his side achieve their aims.

Speaking earlier this year, the Spaniard revealed the characteristics he is looking for in Arsenal’s new centre-forward.

He said: ‘He puts the ball in the net, that’s priority number one. Goal threat. Any successful team needs enough goal threat in the squad. Without it, you have nothing. You can play good football but you need enough goal threat in the team.

‘The other thing is that he has to complement the other people we have, personally and on the pitch, and for that, we need the right profile.’
