AS Roma and Chelsea FC strike Tammy Abraham has admitted that he supported Arsenal while growing up as a kid.
There have been reports that the Englishman is keen on returning to England with Arsenal currently in the market for a striker to replace Alexander Lacazette who is set to leave the club in the summer.
“To be honest I was an Arsenal fan. 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,” Abraham said about his childhood to Eurosport in 2017.
In another interview with Chelsea TV last summer after a friendly in north London, he said: “I love coming to the Emirates. Even if it’s only a friendly, I always love scoring goals. Luckily it was the winner again.”
There have been reports from the Daily Stars that the Mikel Arteta side are preparing a £50million bid for Abraham should they secure a Champions League spot at the end of the season.
