Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham who’s on loan with Swansea believes he has what it takes to solve the current problem Chelsea are experiencing upfront.

Chelsea have struggled to replace Diego Costa and £60million signing Alvaro Morata is yet to score a league goal in 2018.

The Blues turned to former Gunners striker Olivier Giroud, but he has also struggled in the role. Morata and Giroud combined have scored a total of two goals this year, and Chelsea are in dire need of quality upfront.

And Tammy Abraham who’s on loan to Swansea believes he can do the job.

“If I got into the World Cup squad I would be knocking on the door at Chelsea,” said the 20-year-old, who has made two substitute appearances for the Blues.

“I have to finish (the season) strong, look to the World Cup squad this summer and then focus on Chelsea. My aim is to go back and do well with Chelsea.

“I like to believe Chelsea is where I will go through and do well. I have been there since I was six years old. My dream is to break into the first team.”

Abraham hasn’t been invited to the senior team since making his debut with England in the friendly game against Germany in November before playing against Brazil.

The 20-year-old has not scored in the Premier League since October having battled injury during Swansea’s relegation fight and knows he has to improve to make the plane to Russia.

He said: “For me, it shows I have to keep doing it at my club, Swansea. It has been a tough spell and I didn’t really expect, with such big competition, to get straight back into the England team.

“I just have to do my best and get another chance.

“Look at the top strikers like Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero. They are ruthless and every time they get a shot people think they are going to score.

“That is what I have to put into my game. It won’t just fall for me, I have to make it happen.

“I have learned you have to step it up. I am learning through tough times at a very young age.”
