Arsenal had Tammy Abraham on their shortlist last summer

Arsenal had Roma striker Tammy Abraham on their roster last summer before he left Chelsea.

Abraham left Chelsea last summer after they brought in Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan, pushing him further down the pecking order.

The England international has been active since leaving England, and appears to be thriving working with Jose Mourinho.

Roma weren’t the only club interested in signing Abraham last year, and according to Fabrizio Romano, speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside via his Substack column, Arsenal had Abraham on their shortlist, but Roma were quick to secure his sign.

Romano has also confirmed that Abraham was not approached by Arsenal this year, and the 24-year-old appears comfortable in Italy.

“Abraham is more than happy in Rome, with the club, the city and with José Mourinho,” said Romano.

What the future holds for Abraham is unclear at the moment, but a return to England could be tempting, especially if he wants to cement his place in the England squad.

As we’ve seen with the likes of Fikayo Tomori, sometimes moving abroad makes it more difficult to be seen by Gareth Southgate.

With Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract expiring next summer, could Abraham be the answer for Manchester United?
