A highly rated Chelsea striker is set to leave the Premier League champions if he is not in Antonio Conte's plans for next season, and could find himself moving across London to join Arsenal. 

Tammy Abraham has had a great season on loan with Championship side Bristol City, scoring twenty three goals in a struggling team. Many now believe that he is ready for an opportunity in the Premier League, but Conte may not be one of them. 

Abraham has been linked with several Premier League teams, but The Sun now reports that Arsene Wenger is keen to sign him for Arsenal. The French manager wants to create greater depth in his attacking options, and believes that Abraham has the correct characteristics to be a success at the Emirates. 

The England under 21 striker is understood to prefer a stay at Stamford Bridge, but will look to move on if he is told that he will not feature in the first team. Despite being so young, Abraham is desperate to continue his development, which could see him go on to become one of the country's best strikers.
