According to calciomercato, Premier League rivals Arsenal are eyeing a January move for former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham as replacement for Gabriel Jesus.

Jesus suffered an injury on international duty with Brazil and will require surgery, which will see him miss three months of action.

Arsenal were interested in signing Abraham before he left Chelsea for AS Roma in Italy in 2021 and the Gunners are now eyeing a move for the 25 year old England striker ahead of the January transfer window.

Meanwhile, Premier League rivals Manchester United, Arsenal and Newcastle United are pushing to sign Chelsea and USA forward Christian Pulisic in January.

The World Cup performances of Pulisic have put all three Premier League clubs on alert for a potential January transfer away from Chelsea.

Pulisic has about 18 months left on his Chelsea contract and the Blues are considering whether it would make more economic sense to cash in on the 24-year-old during the January window rather than allow his contract to run down to the final 12 months and his value depreciate further.
