The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to hang onto Tammy Abraham this summer…
They may well get their wish, too, with the Evening Standard reporting that the Blues will sit down with Abraham this summer and discuss the prospect of a new deal for the Englishman. A deal of around £50,000 is expected to be laid out for the striker – a fine reward for a career-defining season in the Championship this season.
The striker has, of course, spent the last year on loan in the Championship, where he catapulted his name to the lips of fans throughout the Football Transfer Tavern. Picking up a whopping 23 goals throughout the campaign, Abraham was crucial as Bristol City avoided the drop into League 1.
The deal will likely be followed by another loan, given Chelsea’s likely pursuit of a new top striker this summer, though our landlord thinks that Abraham could well get his chance to shine during pre-season with Antonio Conte.
A Premier League loan will make sense for the striker, allowing him the natural progression from the Championship. If he can impress in the English top flight, he could very well turn into the superstar that Chelsea need.
