ARSENAL are inching closer to the signing of Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham.
That's according to bookmakers Sky Bet, who've slashed the price on the 23-year-old arriving at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners were recently priced at 16/1 to clinch the centre-forward's signature.
But those odds have dropped massively over the last 48 hours with Arsenal now 11/10 to complete a deal.
Chelsea are prepared to offload their attacker for around £40million to finance a deal for Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland.
Getting Abraham's £80,000-a-week wages off the books would also help with their pursuit of a marquee striker signing.
SunSport understand that Arsenal are now frontrunners for his signature.

Chelsea are prepared to allow Abraham to join their London neighbours on an initial loan with the obligation to buy.
The obligation would be contingent on Abraham reaching a pre-set number of appearances.
However, there's still plenty of competition for the six-cap England international.
Aston Villa are second-favourites in the betting market at 5/2 as Dean Smith looks to bolster his forward options.
The player enjoyed a profitable loan spell at Villa Park, scoring 26 goals in 40 appearances to fire them back to the top flight.
West Ham are next at 7/2.
David Moyes is in desperate need of attacking reinforcements with the injury-prone Michail Antonio his only recognised striker.
Manchester United are available at 8/1 with Borussia Dortmund and Leicester locked together at 16s.
