21 year old Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has made just three appearances for Chelsea, spending the majority of his time as a professional on loan spells with Bristol City, Swansea and Aston Villa.

During his loan spell at Aston Villa last season, Abraham scored 26 goals in 40 appearances and played a crucial part in their promotion to the Premier League.

According to Sky Sports reporter David Reed, Abraham must improve his holdup play to be a success at Stamford Bridge.

Reed believes Abraham will be expected at Chelsea to hold the ball up well and bring other players into the game.

Chelsea’s two-window transfer ban means incoming boss Frank Lampard is likely to install faith in academy starlets returning from successful loan moves with Abraham expected to be part of the first team next season.

“I watched a lot of Tammy Abraham last season and there’s no questioning his goalscoring record,” he said on Sky Sports’ Transfer Talk.

“But the only weakness or area of play that he can perhaps improve on is his holdup play and bringing other players into the game.

“That is probably something that Chelsea will look for their striker to be doing, so that will be an area for him to improve on.”
