Arsenal warned against taking Chelsea cast-offs amid Tammy Abraham links after failed Willian and David Luiz transfers

If history if anything to go by, Arsenal should steer clear of signing Tammy Abraham, Simon Jordan believes.

The 23-year-old has been linked with a Stamford Bridge exit for a while having fallen out of favour under Thomas Tuchel.

Arsenal are one of the clubs linked with Abraham, who is understood to be interested in joining them.

However, The Athletic report that Arsenal favour a loan move while Chelsea want to sell and are hoping to make £40million in the process.

Arsenal, however, have had a bit of a nightmare from signing Chelsea players in the recent past.

Willian joined the Gunners on a free transfer last summer and vowed to turn the club into Champions League contenders, but things could hardly have gone worse.

Willian and Luiz have disappointed since making the switch from Chelsea

The 32-year-old managed just one goal and five assists last term and reports have suggested he will be allowed to leave the club if the right buyer can be found.

David Luiz also moved from west to north London, and although he has been good in parts, he has largely proved to be a disappointment at the Emirates – especially given his large wages.

And Jordan reckons it would be wise for Arsenal to steer clear of Abraham – citing their failure with the Luiz and Willian transfers as evidence for his view.

“Those are players who those in their right mind would never think were fit for purpose at Arsenal,” he told talkSPORT on Thursday.

Jordan believes Arsenal should be cautious about signing Abraham

“It’s not so much a reputational thing it’s when you’re going up against your competition and your competition are saying: ‘This player ain’t good enough for me, but he’s good enough for you!’

“How does that work then? It’s universally accepting – and when I say accepting, I mean everyone excluding Kia Joorabchian – would think that the transactions that happened for Willian and David Luiz were just bad business and bad thinking.

“They were players that wern’t fit for purpose in the make-up of Arsenal that needed something more.”
