With things going well on the field of play right now, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been forgetting all about the myriad of loan stars away from the club who could actually improve the first-team.
Though Diego Costa is putting the ball in the back of the net for Antonio Conte right now, the form of Tammy Abraham at Bristol City has been hard not to notice in the West Country.
He’s scored 14 goals for the Robins since joining on loan, as well as the England U21 side, and is widely regarded as one of the most promising forwards in the country.
Still, according to Squawka, the 19-year-old has conceded he may well have to leave Stamford Bridge to achieve his aim of playing at the very highest level.
Paths into the first-team from the Blues’ academy have been difficult to navigate for a number of burgeoning stars of the years and Abraham has played just one competitive game for the Stamford Bridge titans in his career.
“In three years I want to be playing at the top level, at whichever team I’m at. I just want to be one of the best in the Premier League, scoring goals,” he said.
“I’m not too surprised with how it’s gone this season because I know my ability and I’m confident in what I can do.”
“Scoring goals is what I love and it gives me that confidence every time I hit the net.
“I knew what I was going out on loan for when the deal was agreed (with Bristol City) and I had to get into the right mentality.
“I’m playing men’s football now and just needed to adapt to the situation. Luckily I’ve been doing that. I’ve been performing on the pitch, and giving my all.”
