Arsenal odds-on favourites to seal switch of Chelsea star
Arsenal are considered favorites to seal Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham’s transfer this summer in front of players like West Ham and Aston Villa.
Bookies appear to believe Emirates Stadium is the most likely target for Abraham if he leaves Chelsea, with recent transfer rumors linking him to a surprise move to their London rivals.
The England international has been linked to Arsenal by the Telegraph and the Gunners are now favorites with Ladbrokes as his next club.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out as Arsenal might benefit from bringing a new face to the front this summer after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s huge drop in form last season.
Still, many Gooners will wonder if Abraham is really good enough to take the lead for them as the 23-year-old finds himself in and out of the Chelsea team and never quite looks like “Big Six” stuff.

Abraham had productive loan games early in his career with 48 goals in two games in the championship, but he has only scored 21 goals in 58 Premier League games for Chelsea.
Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said: “Tammy Abraham is quick to fall into the pecking order at Chelsea but chances are a surprise move across London is on the horizon, with Arsenal apparently keen to secure their services.”
