Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham will push for a fresh challenge away elsewhere this summer, The Athletic claims.

The 23-year-old has struggled for playing time since Thomas Tuchel took over as the manager from Frank Lampard in January.

He has played just 17 minutes since the beginning of March, and was not even in the matchday squad for the FA Cup final on Saturday.

According to The Athletic, the England international has grown increasingly frustrated with the lack of game time, and could push for a summer exit.

He is unlikely to be short of offers with the reported interest from Aston Villa, West Ham United, Leicester City and AC Milan.

Abraham has two more years remaining on his Blues contract, and it is claimed that the club could demand around £40m for his sale.

However, his price tag could go down ahead of the summer transfer window, having barely made the playing field over the past three months.
