According to rumours today, Chelsea are willing to let striker Tammy Abraham join Arsenal on loan in order to expedite the deal. Abraham looks to want to stay in London, but his £40 million club valuation is deterring potential bidders, despite the fact that he has a lot of interest. Chelsea are ready to loan Abraham to Arsenal for the season with an obligation to buy him for £40 million at the end of the season, according to Andy Dillon of The Sun (who has a very good track record), in the hopes of speeding up the deal so they can focus on signing a new striker themselves. Of course, this would immediately free up Abraham’s earnings and ensure that the fee would arrive for him next summer. Chelsea would then be free to pursue their huge bid for a top striker target, who is widely thought to be Erling Haaland or Romelu Lukaku.
