Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham is currently Frank Lampard’s first choice striker at the moment, and the 21-year-old forward has shown that he isn’t intimidated with the task given to him.
Tammy Abraham hasn’t been intimidated with the pressure of being the first choice striker of a big club and has banged 7 goals in the last three league games for the Blues. After a slow start to the season, he’s now joint top scorer in the Premier League with seven goals already.
Since being hit with a transfer ban, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has decided to stick with the club’s youngsters this season, and Tammy Abraham has proven that he can be trusted with the Chelsea number 9 position.
According to the Guardian, Chelsea have ‘begun discussions’ with Abraham over a new five-year deal in order to reward his impressive performance to the start of the new season.
Abraham is currently on £50,000 a week deal, and the report claims Chelsea are aiming to double his wages.
Chelsea are keen to hand Abraham a new contract in order to keep him at Stamford Bridge and the Blues are also looking to hand young centre-back Fikayo Tomori a new long term deal too, as the defender has slotted seamlessly into Lampard’s back line.
The Blues are confident that Abraham will sign a new deal, with his current contract due to expire in 2022.
Following Chelsea’s 1-0 Champions League loss to Valencia on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge, Abraham has warned our next opponent Liverpool that Chelsea will take the anger of the loss on Liverpool as the Blues welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge this weekend in a Premier League clash.
Abraham said: “[Sunday] is a test of character. We can take our anger out against Liverpool.
“It’s a massive game and both teams will be going to win. We’ll look forward to putting [last night’s defeat] right.”
