A good number of Premier League clubs have been linked with a move for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, including London rivals Arsenal.

The 23-year-old struggled for playing time last season under Thomas Tuchel and could be on his way out this summer.

Manchester City have been linked with a move for Harry Kane, and Pep Guardiola’s side are reportedly close to sealing a deal for the Tottenham Hotspur man.

However, former City winger Trevor Sinclair isn’t a fan of spending big to buy Harry Kane, and he has urged his former club to go for the young Chelsea striker.

Asked if he would take Abraham at Manchester City over Kane, Sinclair told talkSPORT: “I would, yeah.

“He’s a young enough player and with Pep Guardiola’s coaching ability and the teammates around him… he’s a top player.

“The season he had at Aston Villa and then he went back to Chelsea and did very well. He’s a handful, his pace, he looks to stretch the lines, he’s a finisher.

“No player’s perfect, especially at 22 or 23, but there’s a lot of growth there with Tammy. He’d be someone I’d be very interested to see at Manchester City.”

On Man City’s reported £160m bid for Kane, Sinclair added: “It just goes against my principles of what I think about the club. Honestly, it really does.

“I just don’t want to see the club going out there and spending that ridiculous amount of money to bring one player in. That just kills it then. You might as well pack up.”
