Winterburn insists Chelsea striker Abraham ideal Arsenal signing

Arsenal hero Nigel Winterburn is backing their move for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

Abraham's Chelsea future remains uncertain with the 23-year-old falling down the pecking order under new boss Thomas Tuchel, leading to speculation surrounding his future this summer.

"Arsenal have been linked with Tammy Abraham from Chelsea. He certainly would fit the bill of recent Arsenal signings, young with a point to prove," Winterburn told Goal.

"People will question his consistency but what you want is for these young players to get a run in the team.

"Is he going to get a run in a team if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is playing well? Probably not unless Aubameyang can be switched to the left-hand side - although you then need to leave out either Nicolas Pepe or Bukayo Saka.

"With Abraham, there's potential there and development for a young, young player. So, I think it's an option that Arsenal, although with Alexandre Lacazette being linked with a move away, it could be just a name that has been thrown into a hat."
