Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham returned for pre-season on Friday, looking in high spirits despite the uncertainty about the his future.
Abraham was a key player for the Blues under former boss Frank Lampard but barely played after Thomas Tuchel was appointed as Chelsea boss.
With Chelsea keen on signing Erling Haaland this summer, Abraham’s chances of playing next season for Chelsea looks even slimmer.
Former Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Darren Bent has named a key reason why Abraham should leave Chelsea for Crystal Palace this summer.
Speaking exclusively to TIF, Bent said: “Abraham would be young, hungry and fit.
“When the management changed, he didn’t get a chance but that means he will be hungry and want to prove himself again.
“He won’t just want to prove his worth to the fans but himself in a sense. I think that’s critical to a player’s confidence and career.
“I think he is quick, a good finisher, can hold the ball up and has good vision. He isn’t as mature as we want him to be right now but playing in that Palace side alongside some seasoned pros who have played at a good level would get his confidence back.
“Maybe, from there, he could move up the league and play for the likes of Chelsea again.”
