Arsenal legend Ian Wright recently stated that he would love to see Tammy Abraham return to the Premier League, and the striker has now hinted that he may do so. Despite Arsenal’s interest, Abraham left Chelsea to join Roma in Italy last summer.
In his first season in Italy, the England international has scored 23 goals. Despite having a contract in Rome until 2026, he has already been linked with a return to his homeland.
Abraham told talkSPORT that he enjoys seeing other teams reportedly interested in signing him and has hinted at a return to England, specifically London.
“It makes me feel good when I see reports linking me with other clubs,” he said. “It makes you feel like you’re doing something right.”
“Seeing your name in newspapers is a nice feeling.” But for me, it’s about concentrating on my work here.
“I’m sure I’ll continue to be linked with a number of clubs, but who knows what the future holds?” Of course, I’m a Londoner who grew up in England.
“Perhaps one day I’ll return to the Premier League to make a splash.” But for now, it’s all about focusing on Rome, doing my best, and hopefully winning a trophy for these guys, which they haven’t won in many years.”
Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both out of contract at the end of the season, so Arsenal will need to sign at least one striker this summer. Abraham admitted in 2017 that he was a Gunners fan since he was a child.
Wright, the club’s all-time second-leading goalscorer, said last month that Abraham would be ideal for Mikel Arteta. “If he came to Arsenal, I think Arsenal would play directly for him,” he said on the Wrighty’s House podcast.
“He’d put the play together, and he’s got the energy to get in the box.” Tammy is hungry to finish the chances that Arsenal are currently squandering.
“They’re taking chances, but no one is taking advantage of them.” Tammy is now at the point where he’d be in there gobbling it all up. I believe so [he’s now ready]. Absolutely.
“He’s moved to Roma, which is a huge club, and he’s the main man, as he has been since the first game.”
