Chelsea were slapped with a two-window transfer ban early this year after FIFA found Chelsea guilty of 29 breaches of regulations over transferring minors.
Chelsea’s appeal to FIFA was rejected and the Blues must now face two transfer windows without making a signing.
Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham has spent the last three years out on loan, and the 21-year-old was in amazing form for Aston Villa last season. Abraham scored 26 goals for Villa last season and helped bring them back to the Premier League.
With Chelsea unable to sign a striker, Olivier Giroud is the only recognised striker at the club, and Abraham might have to play a role in the senior team next season.
Abraham has now revealed that himself and other Chelsea youngsters are happy with the transfer ban, as this is the best opportunity for them to break into first team.
“This year is the most important year for us, it is now or never. There will never be a better time to play the youngsters,” he told the Telegraph.
“Of course the transfer ban is probably not what the club wanted, but I am excited and I am sure the rest of the players are.
“There is a great chance for us so we must get our heads down at training and go for it at Chelsea.
“I have already been talking to the club about pre-season. I’m going to have a couple of weeks and then come back hitting the ground running.”
