Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham is wanted by Nigeria with the 21-year-old striker yet to play a competitive game for England.

The Chelsea striker is yet to be registered to any national team and is eligible to feature for the Super Eagles or the Three Lions.

Tammy Abraham has remained tight-lipped on the country he’d represent, and the Telegraph reports that Abraham is ready to commit his international future to England if he is selected by Gareth Southgate for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

The 21-year-old has made two appearances for the Three Lions but remains eligible to play for Nigeria as both matches were international friendlies.

Abraham has not publicly committed himself to either county, but it is understood he wants to play for England and would accept a call from Southgate if it came.

He qualifies for Nigeria through his father, who is close childhood friends with the president of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick.’

According to the report by The Telegraph, England boss Gareth Southgate will name his squad for England’s double-header on Thursday with Abraham waiting to see whether or not his good form for Chelsea will be enough to earn him a place in the squad

Meanwhile, Abraham had said in the past that his focus is on Chelsea and he isn’t into the media reports on the country he’d most likely feature for.

Abraham said: “Yes, I have heard the talk. I have not really been focused on that yet.

 “I think when the time comes, the times comes. It is about focusing on Chelsea and hopefully scoring goals and getting victories.

“We never know. You can never say never, whatever comes first really. I just have to keep full focus on Chelsea.”
