Tammy Abraham news

Abraham to Leicester City?

Leicester City have emerged as fresh contenders to land the signature of Tammy Abraham from Chelsea this summer.

The England international is the Blues' top scorer this term with 12 goals, but he has recently fallen down the pecking order.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has preferred Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Kai Haverz to the lead the line over the past few months.

Abraham has either been on the bench or left out of the matchday squad. He has played just three minutes of league football since March.

According to Football Insider, the Foxes are lining up a move for Abraham as they aim to add competition in their frontline next term.

Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho have excelled as a pair, but the former is approaching the final years of his career.

Abraham is valued at around £40m by the Blues. He is also on the radar of West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He has just over two years remaining on his contract.
