Tammy Abraham should leave Chelsea this summer because Blues manager Thomas Tuchel ‘obviously doesn’t fancy him’, That is the opinion of former England striker Carlton Cole.
Abraham is one of the most talented young strikers in the Premier League, and before the arrival of Timo Werner last summer, was tipped to be the main man at the Bridge for the next few years.
However, The England international has fallen down the pecking order in West London since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as manager, and he is now reportedly seeking a summer exit in order to get the game time that he feels he deserves
With the west Londoners in need of raising funds in order to help afford a potential Erling Haaland deal this summer, the English striker is reportedly one of the names on the list the club are actively looking to sell.
There has been many links to a number of clubs in the Premier League, but Arsenal are the club that seem most interested, with recent reports claiming that the Gunners are ready to pay £40 million and take him to the Emirates
Now Cole, who made 31 appearances for the club, believes now is the time for him to move on: ‘You get to a point where you have got to know your worth,’ the former striker told talkSPORT.
‘He has gone on loan and done really well at Aston Villa, Swansea and came back to Chelsea, done well. They still don’t value him the way they should do and the way he feels he should be valued.
‘He didn’t play at the backend of last season and he is not in Thomas Tuchel’s plans obviously because he didn’t play.
‘Tuchel doesn’t fancy him and I would look at other options if I were him and say, “let me go and be the main man somewhere”.’
