Arsenal are ready to renew their interest in Tammy Abraham if they secure a top-four finish and reach the Champions League for the first time since 2016/17.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta was desperate to sign him 12 months ago from Chelsea before he linked up with Jose Mourinho in Serie A.

Roma pipped the Gunners to the post with a compelling salary package and guaranteed first-team football, which the England international couldn’t refuse – but his time at the club might be limited to a single season.

Chelsea have a £68m buy-back option that they can activate next summer, but he could be set for a Premier League return regardless.

If Champions League football is secured, Arsenal are prepared to seize the initiative and present the Serie A outfit with a £50 million offer once this season ends.

Abraham is happy in the eternal city, but wouldn't be averse to returning to London where he has family and friends.

It’s understood Arsenal believe Roma might be tempted into bagging a quick profit on the versatile forward having paid £34 million for him just a few months ago.

The 24-year-old has scored 15 top-flight goals in Italy this term and Arteta believes he can improve even further.

The north Londoners are scouring the market with Alexandre Lacazette’s contract running out and Frenchman eager to pack his bags.

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin also remains a player of interest to Arsenal, despite a campaign that has been blighted by injury and poor form.
