‘Could Be Chelsea’s Harry Kane’ ‘Nowhere Near The Level Required’ – Fans React To 21-Year Old’s Statement About His Future

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham says he still feels he can make the breakthrough into the Blues’ first team.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Aston Villa where he has scored 21 goals in all competitions this season, but speaking whilst away with the England Under 21s, the forward said he is keen on returning to Stamford Bridge:

“That’s the aim going into next season. As a young kid, I’ve always believed I will play for Chelsea. I always believe that. I think I have the ability to. I just have to, when I get the opportunity, grab it with two hands.”

Abraham’s comments sparked a fierce debate on Twitter:

The likelihood is that Abraham will be part of Chelsea’s first team squad next season if the transfer ban remains in place.

The Blues will be very short of strikers if Atletico Madrid make their move for Alvaro Morata permanent, while there is uncertainty over Olivier Giroud’s future with the Frenchman’s contract expiring at the end of June.

Gonzalo Higuain’s situation is more complicated. The ban prevents the club registering new players and with the Argentine already on loan, it’s not certain whether he would be classed as a new recruit if his move is made permanent.

In any case, the signs are that Abraham could have a fair chance of playing first-team games next campaign.
