Chelsea are reportedly willing to allow Arsenal to sign Tammy Abraham on loan this summer if a deal with a permanent switch can be secured.
The Blues are actively looking to sell the England international this summer but have been holding out for a £40m transfer fee.
West Ham United and Aston Villa both registered their interest early in the transfer window, with Abraham believed to be open to a move to either club.
But reports last week claimed that the Gunners have also entered the race to sign Abraham, who is who is a boyhood Arsenal fan and idolised Thierry Henry growing up.
Chelsea’s £40m valuation could prove tricky for Mikel Arteta’s side, who need to trim their squad even further to accommodate more signings.
And according to The Sun, Chelsea have agreed to let Abraham leave Stamford Bridge on loan this summer but will an include a £40m obligation to sign permanently if he reaches a certain number of appearances.
Chelsea are keen to sell Abraham in order to help bring a new striker to the club this summer.
Erling Haaland is the number one target for Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich but Dortmund are adamant that the Norwegian star will be staying with them for at least one more year.
Speaking to Bild this month, Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc said of Haaland: ‘Nothing has changed. ‘We are still planning with Erling for the new season.’
