Arsenal offer Lacazette to Jose Mourinho as Roma close in on Tammy Abraham

Arsenal have offered Alexandre Lacazette to AS Roma to try and sign Tammy Abraham, according to reports in Italy, as per Sport Witness.

The Rome-based club are said to be advanced in negotiations for Abraham, who the Gunners also want, and Edu has offered Lacazette to try and lure Jose Mourinho away from their target.

Corriere della Sera explain ‘his agent pushes to bring him to Roma, which, compared to Arsenal, would guarantee him greater opportunities for growth’.

As things stand, Roma have offered him a €4m/year contract, which is below the €5m/year he is asking for, and that’s when Mourinho picked up the phone to ‘induce him to accept’.

Either way, Abraham’s future is far from Chelsea it seems, and it’s now up to him to decide what’s best for his career.

Meanwhile, Roma’s General Manager, Tiago Pinto, has been pictured on his way to London to conduct talks with Chelsea executives over the possibility of signing Tammy Abraham.
