It has been reported by the Telegraph that Chelsea are ready to let striker Tammy Abraham go for £40 million this summer. The 23 year old has not started for Chelsea since February, a game in which he was subbed at half time.
Tammy Abraham Price Set Out of Favour at Chelsea
After scoring 15 Premier League goals last season, many expected Abraham to kick on and cement his place as first choice striker. However, a couple of injuries and a change of manager has stunted Abraham’s development massively.
He is yet to impress new manager Thomas Tuchel, evident from his huge lack of game time. Since he was subbed against Southampton, he has played just three minutes as a substitute. He was not part of the squad for the FA cup cup semi-final over Manchester City.
The England international will still have two years left on his contract in the summer, but Chelsea are looking to cash on him now. The price has been set for Tammy Abraham.
Many Potential Buyers as Price Set for Tammy Abraham
Tammy Abraham is a proven goal scorer at Premier League and Champions League level. He has also been capped and scored for England. There will be a host of clubs looking to gain his signature.
However, it is reported that the transfer would have to be a permanent one, as a loan deal for Abraham is not desirable for the player. Abraham wants to settle at a club where he can play regularly, and work his way back into Gareth Southgate’s plans.
Abraham has always made it clear that he would like to stay at Chelsea, a club he has been at since he was eight. However, with Tuchel not favouring him, it is felt that a move is necessary for both player and club.
If Abraham and Giroud leave, that would free up around £200,000 in weekly wages. This could be used to finance a move for the likes of Haaland or Lukaku.
Leicester City and West Ham United have been linked with Abraham, as they look to bolster their squad. Wherever Abraham ends up, he will score goals, that’s for certain.
