Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez has successfully completed the signing of Chelsea winger Christian Atsu, and reports claim the former Chelsea interim manager wants to sign another Chelsea player – Tammy Abraham, albeit on loan.

According to The Sun, Rafa Benitez is in talks with Chelsea to land Tammy Abraham on loan, and the Toon chief is willing to cover the striker’s £25,000-a-week wages in full — plus a rental fee.

Tammy Abraham was a hit during his loan spell with Bristol City last season. He was the second highest scorer in the Championship behind only Chris Wood, and Benitez is said to have been pleased with the 19-year-old’s potential.

Chelsea are yet to decide if Abraham will be part of the Chelsea team next season or if he’ll yet go out on loan.
