Southampton reportedly prepare to rival Arsenal and West Ham United for the signature of Chelsea's Tammy Abraham after Danny Ings's shock departure.

Southampton have reportedly joined the likes of Arsenal and West Ham United in the race for Chelsea's Tammy Abraham.

Opportunities for the striker under Thomas Tuchel were few and far between last season, leading to speculation that he could be sold ahead of the 2021-22 season.

Arsenal and West Ham have both been tipped to prise Abraham away from their London rivals, who are supposedly holding out for a £40m figure to offload the 23-year-old.

Now, the Evening Standard claims that Southampton have also registered their interest in Abraham, with the Saints seeking a replacement for Danny Ings following his surprise transfer to Aston Villa.

However, the report adds that Chelsea are keen to get Abraham off the books permanently, whereas Southampton would prefer a loan deal, and neither Arsenal nor West Ham are prepared to fork out Chelsea's £40m asking price.

Abraham - who is also supposedly wanted back at Aston Villa - registered 12 goals and six assists from 32 games last season, and he now has less than two years left on his Chelsea deal.
