Arsenal should sign Tammy Abraham in the January transfer window, claims Kevin Campbell.
Campbell suggested that Arsenal need to continue to strengthen further up front if they’re to finish the season strongly.
The Gunners’ fantastic start to the season sees them currently top of the Premier League table by five points as we near the halfway mark of the campaign.
Mikel Arteta’s side look set to bolster the pack with Mykhailo Mudryk, who ESPN journalist Jorge Baravalle claimed “will be an Arsenal player” before the end of the month.
The January window has also seen TEAMtalk linking Arsenal with a move for Roma and former Chelsea striker Abraham.
Despite Arsenal now being in reach of their priority target, former Gunners striker Campbell told Sky Sports that Arteta needs more depth as they prepare to enter the business time of the season whilst fighting on three fronts.
He said: “Obviously Jesus has been out injured, Eddie Nketiah has come in and done a really good job but it’s still firepower that Arsenal lack, you look at their bench it’s great to see Emile Smith Rowe come back but it’s not enough.
“Mudryk will be a really good edition, I still think they need another striker, rumour has it they are interested in Tammy Abraham, I think that would be a good alternative as well so they can mix and match and play different players because there’s a lot of games to come.”
TIF Thoughts on Campbell’s comments…
With Arsenal flying in the league so far, they’ve put themselves in their best position to win their first Premier League title since 2004.
Despite Nketiah’s form which has seen him bag four goals in his last four games in Jesus’ absence, there still remains the question mark over whether he can extend his form until the end of February when the Brazilian returns.
Abraham is one man touted and although he’s failed to live up to his high standards this season with only five goals in 22 games, last season the man who claimed Jose Mourinho was helping him become a “monster”, bagged 27 in his debut campaign in Rome proving his goal-scoring ability.
The arrival of Abraham would give Arteta another dimension up front with the 25-year-old standing at 6 foot 4 and surely the man to add goals to get them over the line.
