The Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are more than content with life in west London at the moment.
Having lifted their second Premier League title in three years, despite the anomaly of a season in between, there is little to complain about.
However, one gripe of a few of our regulars has been over the progression of their all-star youth side, or lack of for that matter.
The Blues’ development sides have been cleaning up in terms of silverware in recent years, however, none are yet to establish themselves in the first team.
One hot prospect, who spent last season on loan with Championship side Bristol City, Tammy Abraham has been the subject of intense speculation this summer.
The England U21-international, who is currently away with the Three Lions as they prepare for the European Championships, has been linked with a move to sign newly promoted Newcastle on loan for their first season back in the top flight.
However, speaking to The Guardian, the 19-year-old has admitted he is unsure as to where he’ll be next season.
“I haven’t spoken to Chelsea yet but they know I’m focusing on this tournament so the discussions will happen after,” he said.
“I’m not too sure [where I will play] but hopefully it will be in the Premier League.
“After this season I need to take myself to the next level. That’s the type of person I am, I always want to do better. I always want to do more. So going into the new season my aim will be to top this one.”
