Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has impressed on loan, and the 21-year-old is keen on returning to the club to show just how much he has improved.

Abraham had impressed on two previous loan spells with Bristol City and Swansea, which earned him an England senior team call-up last year.

Abraham is in massive form for Sky Bet Championship side Villa, and has bagged in 21 goals already this season.

The Chelsea academy product has vowed to return to Chelsea upon completing his loan deal with Villa and aims to fight for the Chelsea striking role.

“That’s the aim going into next season,” Abraham told Sky Sports News. “As a young kid, I’ve always believed I will play for Chelsea. I always believe that.

“I think I have the ability to. I just have to, when I get the opportunity, grab it with two hands.”

Gonzalo Higuain is currently Chelsea’s first choice striker under Maurizio Sarri having joined Chelsea in January on a six-month loan deal. Olivier Giroud is Sarri’s second choice.

Tammy Abraham has a good chance of breaking into the Chelsea team next season as the club might not have the opportunity to sign a new striker this summer following the transfer ban. Giroud and Higuain’s contract expire at the end of the season, and Abraham have the opportunity to break into the Chelsea squad.

Tammy Abraham has hailed youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi for getting an England senior team call-up.

“He was always coming into my house, we didn’t really play together because he was a bit too young but he was my brother’s age,” said Abraham. “They’re good mates.

“Watching him grow up to where he is now, he’s done very well. He’s more than deserved this call up, I’m very happy for him.

“Ever since a young age, he’s been unbelievable. Now he’s actually doing it in men’s football for the world to see. It’s heart-warming. I just hope he continues that and carries on building.”
