Clinton Morrison has claimed he has ‘heard all summer’ that Arsenal are looking to sign Tammy Abraham or Gabriel Jesus.
The former Premier League striker has said Manchester City’s hitman, Jesus, will be a ‘very good signing’ for the club as they aim to return to Champions League football next season.
Eddie Neketia has signed a new contract at Arsenal, while Alexandre Lacazette will join Lyon when his contract at the club expires this month.
As a result, this leaves Mikel Arteta in front of a big void and he needs to fill it with at least one striker, not to forget that a certain Pierre-Emerick Aubamuang was also left unturned in January. .
Morrison has rubbished claims that Roma’s record-breaking striker Abraham is on his transfer wishlist.
And he thinks that if Pep Guardiola allows Jesus to go, he will send him to his former assistant, Arteta, as he told BBC Radio 5 Live Sport.
“I’ve heard all summer that it’s going to be Jesus or Tammy Abraham,” Morrison said. “Arsenal were going for one of two.
“Will they get Tammy? I’m not 100% sure. I think Jesus would be a very good signing. I think Arteta and Pep Guardiola combination. If Pep lets him go, it’s up to Arsenal.”
Jesus or Abraham?
If Arsenal fans had a choice, it would be interesting to see which of the two forwards they would pick.
Abraham is the more out-and-out striker, while Jesus can play in the front three.
There is no doubt that inside the penalty area, Abraham’s movement, competition and finishing ability is far better than the Brazilian man.
But the four-time Premier League winner would argue that he is better at finding space, connecting games and creating opportunities for himself and his teammates than the former Chelsea player.
