Reports claim Arsenal will agree to Tammy Abraham’s personal terms and are ready to sell an experienced striker to fund a move for the Chelsea man.

Alexandre Lacazette, who has recently entered the final 12 months of his contract at the Emirates Stadium, has been placed on the transfer list by Arsenal, according to a report from the Mirror.

Arsenal have slapped a £15million price tag on Lacazette, with a view to replacing the Frenchman with Abraham.

The Chelsea striker has attracted interest from West Ham, Aston Villa and Arsenal. Chelsea have placed a £40 million valuation on the English forward this summer.

The 23-year-old appears surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge after slipping down the pecking order.

He looked set for a stellar Blues career after his breakthrough season of 2019-2020. The Londoner bagged 18 goals from 47 appearances in all competitions.

He is yet to sign a new deal at Chelsea with his current contract set to expire in 2023. Abraham currently earns around £80,000-a-week in west London but wants to increase his weekly wage by £45,000 to £135,000-a-week.

And the Emirates outfit are willing to pay that amount, according to The Express. There is still confusion about his price tag.
