Chelsea striker in line for extension

Abraham set for new Blues contract

Chelsea will reportedly reward young striker Tammy Abraham with a new contract following his impressive season on loan at Bristol City this season.

The England international under-21 international linked up with the Championship outfit on a temporary basis last year in order to earn valuable first-team experience.

He has since netted an admirable tally of 23 goals in the second tier of English football, and his form has captured the attention of several other clubs in the country.

Blues boss Antonio Conte is still said to be mulling over the player's position next season, but according to The London Evening Standard, the club will seek to commit Abraham to a fresh contract.

Abraham still has two years left on his previous deal and the Blues are prepared to offer him a double-your-money contract in order to secure his long-term future at Stamford Bridge.

The young marksman made two Premier League appearances for Chelsea last term as he came off the bench for the games against Liverpool and Leicester City.
