Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is currently unable to train and will miss Chelsea’s Premier League home game against Everton on Sunday as he continues his recovery from an ankle problem.
The 22 year old striker flew to Barcelona at Chelsea’s request to see a specialist, who confirmed the club’s original diagnosis that he did not require an operation.
Abraham has now revealed when he expects to make his injury comeback.
Asked whether there was a chance he would be available for England this month, Abraham told Standard Sport: “Yes, definitely. I’m almost fit. There’s still a bit to do. I’ll get there soon.
“It’s a recurrence. [The problem was] playing on it and aggravating it even more. It is still like a swollen ball really but it is getting better day by day.
“The club wanted me to go to Barcelona. They just wanted different eyes, a different mindset on this situation. He told me what was wrong, exactly what the Chelsea physios said and he recommended some stuff for me to do. I’m doing physio right now.
“This time, I just said ‘I’ll just come back when I’m 100 per cent’ instead of coming back and going again.”
