Tammy Abraham urged to leave Chelsea
Despite a stellar first full season in Chelsea colours during Frank Lampard’s only full campaign at the club, Tammy Abraham has quite clearly fallen out of favour under boss Tuchel.
The striker did not feature in either of the club’s two major finals at the back end of the season, an unused substitute for the Champions League final victory, before failing to make the matchday squad for the FA Cup final defeat against Leicester City.
Now, the 23-year-old has been told to leave the club by former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino, who was assertive in his view the striker must call time on his Blues career.
“Tammy is a player who a lot of clubs will want. Whether it’s a loan deal, I’m pretty sure Chelsea will want a big deal elsewhere,” he told talkSPORT.
“They’ll probably want £40m or £50m for him, which might be a big ask in the present climate. But Tammy’s got to play. It’s a big issue if you just sit it out. He’s ended up going down the pecking order.
“He wasn’t even in some of the squads at the end of the season was he. So it’s obvious that Tuchel isn’t going to have him as part of his plans, certainly his first 11.”
