Ladbrokes have made Newcastle favourites to sign Chelsea’s 19 year-old striker Tammy Abraham for a season long loan in the Premier League.
Tammy is one of many of the Blues youngsters who are sent out on loan for first team experience and they find it difficult to get games at Chelsea.
Tammy joined the Youth Academy in 2004 as a 6 year-old and has progressed through the youth ranks.
Chelsea’s 19 year-old striker Tammy Abraham
He’s been on loan at Bristol City this season where he’s had a wonderful loan spell.
He’s played 38 times in the league with 23 goals and in total he’s scored 25 goals in 45 appearance.
That’s an excellent goalscoring record in the Championship for a team that has struggled this season and he’s joint second top scorer just 2 goals behind leader Chris Wood.
Abraham’s future at Chelsea is unclear and manager Antonio Conte will probably want to send him out on a season long loan in the Premier League and he can trust Rafa to develop the lad.
The 19 year-old did so well in the second division this term and he needs to take a step up.
Rafa will undoubtedly try to sign him on loan with an option to buy and if he does well we could sign him next year – always assuming he joins us on loan this summer.
We have missed so many chances this season that it’s cost us a whole load of points and Rafa will be keen to add at least two news strikers to his squad this summer.
Abraham has played for the England U18, U19 and U21 sides – and he’s still only 19.
This 6ft 4 ins striker would be an excellent loan signing for us this summer.
