Arsenal are ready to meet Tammy Abraham’s wage demands to bring the Chelsea striker to the Emirates this summer, according to reports.

The Gunners have emerged as the frontunners to sign Abraham with Blues boss Thomas Tuchel ready to offload the 23-year-old this summer.

Abraham has popped up with regular goals for Chelsea – and shown his ability during loan spells at Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa – but Tuchel appears to be unconvinced, leaving the forward out of multiple of his matchday squads last season.

A potential stumbling block to Abraham’s move to Arsenal was his wage demands – he is currently on around £80,000 a week and is said to want around £125,000.

But the Daily Express say Arsenal have indicated in talks that they are prepared to meet Abraham’s demands as Mikel Arteta looks to bolster his attacking options.
