"He's my boy!" - Arsenal targeting England star who is friends with Bukayo Saka

Arsenal have been linked with a shock move for former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

The England international, 25, is currently at Roma, having joined the Italian side in a £34m move from Chelsea in 2021.

He enjoyed an impressive debut season in Italy, scoring 27 goals in all competitions.

Abraham was part of the Roma side that won the inaugural Europa Conference League.

It came just a year after Abraham had won the Champions League with Chelsea.

The 25-year-old has found goals harder to come by this season, with the striker managing only four in 20 appearances.

Nevertheless, he is being linked with a return to English football.

Arsenal monitoring Abraham

According to Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal are monitoring Abraham and are said to be "admirers" of the striker.

While a January transfer is not expected, a summer move is a potential option for Abraham.

Should he join the Gunners, he could link up with another England international, Bukayo Saka.

Saka has previously revealed the pair are close friends.

'He's my boy!'

Speaking after Abraham scored for England in October, Saka told ITV Sport: "I'm really happy for Tammy.

"He's my boy. I'm just really happy he got his goal because he's been working really hard, he's been in really good form out in Italy so I’m really happy for him.

"It is football and different challenges will come up and I feel he's dealt with this one (moving to Roma) well so far, I just wish him the best and I'm happy he got his goal."
