Chelsea and Bristol City fans alike have been singing Tammy Abraham’s praises all season in the Transfer Tavern, amid a stunning campaign from the teenage striker.
The 19-year-old has been the difference between survival and relegation for the Robins this season, moving himself up to joint-third in the Premier League’s scoring charts with 22 goals in 38 appearances – including a vital opener in a 1-1 draw with relegation rivals Blackburn Rovers earlier this week.
It remains to be seen whether Abraham will be promoted to Chelsea’s first-team next season, sent out on loan once again or sold to another club during the coming transfer winow – the fate many members of the Blues’ prodigious loan army inevitably face after showing flurries of fine form.
But regardless of what happens to Abraham this summer – the Tavern’s Chelsea drinkers want to see him competing for a starting berth with Diego Costa – Bristol City manager Lee Johnson believes the youngster’s season at Ashton Gate has done wonders to his market value.
As quoted by Sky Sports, he said following the 1-1 draw with Blackburn on Monday; “I think he’s (Abraham) been a fantastic signing for us. We appreciate it from Chelsea, but we’ve done well for Tammy and Chelsea.
“The market value has shot up on him, if they ever want to sell him, but also we’ve helped develop him. That only comes from Tammy being such a good lad and working as hard as he has. This will be an unbelievable learning curve for him.”
