Arsenal handed ‘dream’ Gabriel Jesus strike partner as Tammy Abraham makes huge transfer U-turn

Arsenal could look to make another move for former transfer target Tammy Abraham in the coming months after reports claim the striker has made a U-turn on his future. The Roma talisman has continued to impress since making the move to Italy, though a return to England could help progress him even further.

For the Gunners a move for the England international could help consolidate their striking options, with their goal scoring being a clear issue during last season. That led to Mikel Arteta investing heavily in the transfer market, signing Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City for £45million.

The Brazilian has made a good impression so far, working hard off the ball and combining that with his ability on it, he has looked to end the woes they had in the forward department last campaign. “I think it lifts the standards with the way he’s [Gabriel Jesus] training every day and the way that he’s talking and the way that they are connecting,” Arteta said on the impact he has made.

While it has been an ideal start for the forward, there could be plenty more to come in many various ways. For example, he is yet to start in a two striker setup or outside of the centre-forward role, despite the versatility he showed during his time at the Etihad under Pep Guardiola.

On the other hand, there could be concern surrounding him if he falls out of form or if he suffers a huge injury, leaving Eddie Nketiah as the only option left. So that could lead to eyeing a move for another centre-forward that may be able to compete in the future, which ties in neatly to a former target making a potential u-turn on his future.

According to reports from Corriere dello Sport, via Sports Witness, the 24-year-old doesn’t see his future in Serie A and would prefer a move back to the Premier League. It’s a potential spin on previous comments made by the striker, who claimed he wasn’t thinking about his future at all.

Abraham could give the Gunners the strength in depth they need to be serious contenders at the top end of the league, giving Jesus his “dream” strike partner in the making. It may end up costing the Gunners in the market, but it could help them get one up over their Premier League rivals who could be eyeing a move too.
