Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are always on the lookout for their youngsters and how they are progressing, with many of them being in the vast network of Chelsea’s loan system throughout Europe. Indeed the recent links away for their highly-rated youngster, Kasey Palmer, won’t go down well with their Blues fanbase.
Chelsea, more than any other team, have a plethora of loaned out players and talented youngsters gracing Europe to further enhance their careers, with the ultimate dream of returning to SW6 to become a first-team regular, much like Andreas Christensen has done this season. However, there are few that have the success story that Christensen does, with his loan moves building him up to become a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge recently.
Many of the local Blues in the bar would love to see more local and young talent come through the ranks in a drip feed style to the first team squad – that’s the one thing that gets the fans excited more than anything.
For most, that just doesn’t happen, and the players often have to move away to get their chance. Indeed it seems that Palmer may have to follow suit with a host of Championship clubs chomping at the bit to sign the player that helped Huddersfield gain promotion two seasons ago.
With this in mind, our landlord has taken a look at another one of the youth players at Chelsea that should be looking at a potential exit this summer in the hunt for regular football…
OUR VERDICT – Tammy Abraham
The striker has been on loan at recently relegated Premier League side Swansea City, after impressing for Bristol City the season before. Indeed, he’s a massive talent and one that many in the bar are eager to watch his progress.
Not a lot has been mentioned about the Englishman and his return to Stamford Bridge. Whilst Chelsea struggle they could have a homegrown player within their ranks just waiting for the opportunity to take, however, it seems Abraham may have to look elsewhere for regular first team minutes in his future.Like what the TT have on offer?
