Chelsea are reportedly ready to drop their asking price for Tammy Abraham in what could be a huge boost for Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta’s side have been linked with a swoop for the Chelsea striker, who dropped out of the first-team picture under Thomas Tuchel last term.
But the Stamford Bridge side slapped a £40m price tag on Abraham – which has so far proved too much to tempt his suitors.

West Ham and Aston Villa are believed to be interested in the 23-year-old, as well as the Gunners.
And with no-one biting at Chelsea’s valuation, the Stamford Bridge side are set to slash the transfer fee by at least £5m, according to The Sun.
Chelsea are looking to sell Abraham to help fund their own bid for a new striker, with Erling Haaland their top target and Romelu Lukaku also on their radar.
And if they drop their asking price to £35m, Arsenal could be best placed to take advantage.
